ÂIÂve always loved serials,Â Ellington admits. ÂI used to figure my allowance in terms of how many Nancy Drew books I could purchase at any given time. When the opportunity came to write for KIC, I jumped at it.Â
KIC plans to publish novellas that tie-in to the serials later this year, and Ellington is hard at work on those in addition to Âkeeping upÂ with her commitments for KIC and her other freelance work.
ÂWhen my head explodes, it wonÂt be gray matter that splatters everywhere, itÂll be typeface,Â she grins. ÂAnd I wouldnÂt have it any other way.Â
