Michelle Ellen is a freelance writer and editor. Born and raised in the state of Washington, she wrote and studied music for years before combining the two as a career.
As a freelance writer, Michelle covers music news, interviews, album reviews and show reviews for artists of all different genres. Her writing has been featured on Examiner.com, AXS.com, and the blog for Seattle-area radio station KLCK, Click 98.9. She has also provided reviews and writing services for Mapquest and the mobile app HeyLets.
In 2010 she founded Editing By ME, an editorial company providing editing and proofreading services for independent authors and publishing houses. She helps clients hone their voice and creative vision through their writing, and the majority of these works are now available through major retailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Growing up Michelle played classical and jazz music while simultaneously creating mix tapes for friends that consisted of rock, pop, hip hop and country. She became notorious among friends and family as the girl who listened to bands that no one else had heard ofbefore. These days Michelle is married with two kids and divides her time between family life in suburbia and hanging out in the live music scene. She still listens to bands that none of her friends have heard of before.
