About Ella Olson
Ella is the author of two novels,
Root, Petal, Thorn
Where the Sweet Bird Sings
. And is madly at work on her third. She served a year-long remote internship at the Friedman Literary Agency in New York City reading manuscript submissions,
teaches Historical Fiction and Manuscript Revision/Querying for the University of Utah's Lifelong Learning continuing education program, and spent nearly a decade on the
Board of Directors for the
Salt Lake City Public Library System (not to mention four additional decades browsing the stacks). She is a member of the Women's Fiction Writing Association & the Historical Novel Society.
She is represented by Rachel Ekstrom at Folio Literary Management.
Personally, Ella is the mom of three kids ranging from about-to-drive to about-to-drink, the mama of two dogs, and the wife of one patient husband. Years ago she graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Finance and after many years analyzing numbers she gave up her corner cubicle and started writing fiction.
