Elinor Gale has been a writer, observer of human nature, and lover of the English language since childhood. An avid reader and inveterate eavesdropper, she has woven her curiosity about human behavior into her work as writing teacher, editor, and creator of humorous yet poignant fiction and poetry. Elinor’s essays, poetry and articles have been published in print and online. The Emancipation of Emily Rosenbloom is her debut novel.
Elinor has worked as a proofreader/copy editor for a small chain of local newspapers, copywriter, editor, and writing teacher in corporate and academic settings. Now, as a freelance writing coach, she finds joy and inspiration in helping writers find their voices and write about what matters to them.
A Massachusetts native, Elinor moved to the Bay Area 20 years ago and loves living on the Pacific Coast, although she’s quick to remind us that she could actually swim in the Atlantic. She lives in San Francisco with her partner and his chubby Burmese cat.
