Ellen Hartman

Love is no joke, but it sure is funny

“Hartman’s tale offers a realistic depiction of character motivation and spicy sexual tension.”

“In typical Ellen Hartman style The Long Shot is so very funny, and at the same time so very heartbreaking.”

A sweet, nostalgic tale with lots of emotion and excitement. Well written and extremely entertaining.”

“Such a lovely book, in a way that totally surprised me. It was truly like watching someone fall in love.”

I’ve been making a living as a writer ever since I got my creative writing degree from Carnegie Mellon University and went to work for Microsoft. I spent fifteen years writing technical manuals no one ever read until I finally decided to take a shot at writing what I really love–romance.

My husband and I are both from Scranton, Pennsylvania. We met on a blind date on New Year’s Eve in a mutual love-at-first-sight moment–which would make an awesome novel, if only my husband would agree to be ‘fictionalized.’ I’m working on it.

More recently, I’ve been working on a young adult novel. I’m excited about this new direction and look forward to sharing it with you soon. 

If you’re working on a book and need some help, hit me up because I’m offering editing services. My real skills are character, dialogue, and conflict. I’m not a copy editor, so this is developmental editing only–think big picture, not spelling. (Believe me, you do not want my help with spelling.)
