“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.)
