About Me

ZR Ellor is a writer (and occasional artist) from Washington, DC. Growing up a half-insider, half-outsider in the USA’s political hotspot, he was destined for a career as a bureaucrat, lobbyist, or scientist before spurning his fate and running off to write fantasy novels for teens and adults with major political themes (and monsters).

He holds a BA in English Lit and biology from Cornell University, loves exploring all arcana of the publishing industry, and made a decent splash on Wattpad before pursuing professional publication. When not writing, he can be found training for marathons, , and hunting the best brunch deals in Dupont Circle.
