About me!


Hello! I'm a magazine writer blogging from my little Ellie & Co office, here in the seaside town of Brighton, England. I am also the author of Secret Brighton from JonGlez guides (out end May/start June 2018 I hope!). 

I grew up a London girl, moved to Brighton 15 years ago, and started Ellie & Co as a way to rediscover my city; see it through fresh eyes – and to write about what interests me without an editor's approval. I love discovering secret and little-known places (see my Secret Brighton guide so far),  road trips, unique hotels, date night, t-shirtsold pictures of people in the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, wine, colourful art, people with unique lives and stories, New York (I'm borderline obsessed) and my fat cat, Eddie (whom I miss dearly). 

Words people have used to describe me: "Adventurous", "quirky", "fun", "ditsy", "unique" (hmmm!). 

If you'd like to contact me with a query, please do at any time at ellie@ellie-and-co.co.uk, or find me on Instagram or Twitter.

If I could be 'twinned' with an artist it would be Chandler O' Leary, (she's been sketching her road trips for 20 years)

"I am the one who will choose the squiggliest line on the map, rather than the Interstate highway, every single time. I am the one who gets excited about driving 200 miles out of my way to see a giant concrete prairie dog. I am the one who will add an extra day to our trip to make sure we have enough time to spend at Wall Drug. I also have a thing for jackalopes, I brake for any coffee-pot-shaped building, and I have a bright yellow hat shaped like cartoon Swiss cheese." 

(What she said.)
