About me

I have written and published three novels in the psychological/crime genre under the name LE Hill.  In a complete contrast, my debut novel with Choc Lit and Joffe Books, has recently been published.  A Summer Wedding on Arran, under my other writing name Ellie Henderson, is out now and can be ordered here! My latest novel, A Christmas Escape to Arran, has just been published and is available here.

I have been a writer in residence with Luminate and Erskine Care Homes and Women’s Aid East and Midlothian. This work has twice been nominated in the Write to End Violence Against Women Awards. In 2022 I was appointed as the first storyteller-in-residence at the Fringe by the Sea festival in North Berwick, East Lothian.

I am pleased to be part of the Scottish Book Trust's Live Literature Author Directory. Click here for more information about the workshops and creative sessions I offer.

I am particularly interested in creative writing for health and well-being and run a small social enterprise in East Lothian, Sharing A Story CIC, where we use creative writing, shared reading and other creative methods to reduce social isolation and build confidence. 

My favourite authors, in no particular order, include Val McDermid, Liza Marklund, Elif Shafak, Shari Low, Sue Moorcroft and Lin Anderson. And I could go on and on . . .
