About Me

The Author

Hi friend,

Thank you so much for being here! My name is December, but I've been writing under the pen name, d.ellis, since 2014. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Arizona State University in 2014 with a concentration in Creative Writing Fiction. I started my Instagram account (@d.ellispoetry) in 2016 and began sharing my poems and building a community of not only fantastic readers, but also other incredible authors and poets.

My debut poetry book, Things You Don't Talk About, is a collection written over ten years that touches on issues like mental health, family trauma, loss, and much more.

If you enjoy raw and honest poetry, or want to feel less alone in times of pain, then Things You Don't Talk About will make a great addition to your bookshelf. Take a look at my homepage to find where you can purchase Things You Don't Talk About.
