ellyElly Gibson is a purple-haired blue-haired writer and editor based in New York’s Capital Region.

Hi there. I have worked for a handful of newspapers in both New Mexico and New York state as a reporter, copy editor, photographer, and feature writer. I am currently freelancing for online magazines and other publications, as well as writing novels (or at least the one).

I graduated from the University of New Mexico in 2015 with a bachelor’s in Business Administration, and never seemed to fit in with my corporate-bound classmates.

I currently live in Albany, New York, with my husband Steven; our cat, Arthur; and two Labrador retrievers, Steven (whom I met before I met my husband) and Edgar.

When I’m not writing articles and personal essays (or the occasional limerick), you’ll probably find me sitting on my couch rewatching episodes of Twin Peaks.
