Steve Ellis

Biography

 Steve Ellis has been writing and narrating stories for children for many years. His work as an English teacher has kept him in contact with children and taken him to Turkey, Italy, Thailand and Malaysia. In rural Borneo, as a teacher trainer/mentor he has promoted the use of illustrated story books as a learning aid for children to read, as well as doing drama and music projects with them.

Steve’s  passion for writing stories for children has its roots in his own childhood, in the pleasure that books gave him from an early age, even before he could read properly himself. He can still remember the joy of holding a book and lingering over the pictures as tales were read to him by his parents and grandfather.

Later, as he learned to read, both his parents and teachers at primary school nurtured Steve’s love of books and ensured a plentiful supply of reading material – one teacher brought his personal collection of stories for children into class! Love of reading soon led to love of making up stories and writing, both at school and at home, and many years later that enthusiasm continues.

Steve has enjoyed sharing his stories with his own children – and now grandchildren, Joe (7) and Millie (3). He’s delighted that Joe seems to be following in his footsteps by being eager to share stories of his own!.

Steve currently divides his time between Thailand, where he is currently working as a Teacher Trainer and Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo).
