Author has written 16 stories for Law and Order: SVU.

Well hi there. I'm Ellie: the SVU loving, olive despising, stage acting, alternate-world writing, waffle craving human.

I love to laugh like an idiot around family, friends, strangers. I'm not afraid to be my crazy self around anyone. We all belong where we're appreciated, and I'm right where I need to be. I do everything I can with a joyful heart. I do try to be fearless, but it's for others to judge if I'm succeeding. I'm my own unique person; I will give myself credit for that. One thing I've told myself for a long time is - Don't look at others and only see what you don't possess, but look at yourself and find what you do possess. You'll be surprised how much awesomeness you'll see. I was.

I discovered my burning passion for writing only a few years ago. Now I can pair my favorite things and write with my love for SVU. I don't think I've ever been so obsessed with anything else in my life. Sometimes I even forget SVU is an alternate world. (I do find it comforting to draw into a world protected by Olivia Benson and her squad, though.)

Mariska Hargitay is almost too good to be true. Almost. The way she looks at life and makes herself a role model for everyone even as a rich celebrity under the microscope is inspirational beyond words to me. She keeps herself grounded and keeps her priorities straight, even when the world throws scrutiny onto her fearless soul.

Getting feedback from people who are willing to take time and read my work honestly makes my day. I smile whenever I get a positive review to a story. Ok, I'll stop now. You're lovely for reading all this :)

The Loft reviews
The Commissioner wore a solemn expression. "The department has been over the entire city of New York - twice. I understand the gravity of this situation, but a morning motion in a meeting between Suffolk County Police, NYPD, and surrounding county officials was passed to suspend the search for Sergeant Olivia Benson." A screaming silence fell between them. "I'm sorry."
