My name is Shelly Ellis. I’m a trade magazine editor, a fiction author, and a shameless black girl nerd. Oh, and I’m currently growing little nerdette-in-the-making in my belly. I love books, trashy reality TV, all things Lord of the Rings, and adult cartoons. I’ve published a few books and short stories, and have two naughty books coming out in 2013 with Kensington Publishing, Can’t Stand the Heat, and The Player and the Game. To find out more about my work and read more of ramblings, go to shellyellisbooks.com.
