The best way to contact me is by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I love hearing from fans and will reply to everyone. However, I get lots of messages and some take up huge amounts of time.
So . . .
Please don't send stories or things you've written. I just don’t have the time to read them all.
Don't send long lists of questions requiring detailed answers. You'll probably find most of the information you need in the FAQs on this site.

Ella West is a multi-award winner teen thriller writer who farms sheep and beef with her husband near Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand. She likes cooking and gardening but doesn’t like cleaning the bathroom. She occasionally goes trout fishing with her family and they hate her when she catches a fish and they don’t. Her chickens keep getting out and destroying her garden. In other words, life is tough.
And then there’s the sheep.
WARNING: Do not start reading an Ella West book when you are about to go to sleep. Ella West will not be responsible for late nights, sleeping in or missing the start of school the following day.
I lived in Westport for about 15 years after I graduated from university. I went there for my first fulltime job and fell in love with the place. When I went back a few years ago for an author tour, a pupil at one of my talks asked me why I hadn’t written a book set in Westport and I didn’t have an answer. So I wrote this book.
