Freya Eden-Ellis

An idealist with a profound love of cats, literature, David Attenborough and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Currently, I work in film and TV production in the UK, but I've always wanted to write. I hope to cross mediums and genres by writing both novels and screenplays. My interests lie in pop-science, environmentalism, society and the minutiae of individual thought. I love the small things - the idiosyncrasies -that make us human, both on a personal and collective scale and I try to explore these in my writing. Favourite authors include David Mitchell, Audrey Niffenegger and Téa Obreht. In 2008, I graduated with a BA in English Studies from the University of Nottingham. Since then I have pursued a career in telling stories in various forms. Eventually, the dream is to write my own stories full time!

This was a good story, good plot and interesting characters. If you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

Wow, this is a great read. Such rich imagery and realistic thought processes, I didn't want it to end so quickly. Nicely done, Freya.

Really enjoyed this. Loved the authors use of language and description. Took me to a world that is so different from my own.

A very descriptive piece, allows the reader to feel as the protagonist feels. Very enjoyable.

I thought this was a compelling story and very well written. In particular i liked the quick progression of the story and the description is a real imagination-sparker. More of this please!

Hard to follow. I had to quit reading this after the first few paragraphs. Too much over description.

I really enjoyed reading this! I felt sucked into her mind and her struggle to understand what Amy was whilst dealing with 'reality' at the same time.

Lyrical and poetic without being over-written. A wonderful slice of bite-sized fiction.

I do not know the author, so my perspective is unbiased. There seemed to be too many descriptive words. It felt like the author was over reaching and trying too hard. The story did not flow and sound natural. It wasn't a bad story but it wasn't a wonderful story either.

An excellent entree. Loved this interesting story blending the personal with the wide world and mixing-up a whole range of themes. Felt I was in her head.

A fantastic read. I was very impressed with how the author was able to balance big themes (environmentalism, activism, foreign relations etc), whilst skilfully bringing the action down to a very personal level that gave an intense and believable insight into the impact of a single, strong - if damaged - individual. It's easy to see how this short story could lend itself to a longer piece and I, for one, would love to read more! LKB.
