Ellen Lewis

Metal Lunchbox Publishing

My Manuscript Wish List

Ellen Lewis has a journalism degree from Rowan University. She used this degree to write for several newspapers and magazines before making the switch to writing mostly fiction. Although she still spends a lot of her time writing, she now enjoys both editing and looking at new submissions for Metal Lunchbox Publishing, an independent publishing company in Maryland. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children, and two dogs. When she's not working in the literary world, she plays the piano and goes on fun adventures with her family. (After the kids are asleep, she's also been known to spend more time than she cares to admit playing Elder Scrolls Online.)

Currently, I am extremely interested in acquiring individual short stories in almost any genre, but especially sci-fi/fantasy. I am NOT the right person for erotica, and in general, hopeless endings don't sit well with me.

Fun facts about me:
  • I have a rescue puppy named Mickey who is currently trying to eat my entire house, including the walls, but I love him anyway. I also have an ancient miniature dachshund, named PB. If you stare at her too long, her eye starts twitching.
  • My high school job was playing the piano at a cafe.
  • I wrote for parenting publications long before I had children of my own.
  • I am a huge Disney fan.
  • I am left handed, and take unwarranted pride in this.
