Ellen Meeropol’s writing explores characters at the intersection of political turmoil, ethical dilemma, and family life. Publishers Weekly gave her debut novel, House Arrest (Red Hen, 2011) a starred review, calling it “thoughtful and tightly composed, unflinching in taking on challenging subjects and deliberating uneasy ethical conundrums.” A literary late bloomer, Ellen Meeropol left her nurse practitioner career to write fiction and work in an independent bookstore. Her short stories and essays can be seen in Bridges, Pedestal, Rumpus, Portland Magazine, Shaking Magazine, Women’s Times, Off Our Backs and The Writers Chronicle, among others. Ellen is a founding member of the Rosenberg Fund for Children and author of the script for their dramatic program, “Celebrate.”
