Ella Carey is the USA Today and Amazon charts bestselling author of Secrets of Paris series, as well as the standalone kindle bestsellers, Secret Shores, The Things We Don’t Say and Beyond the Horizon, set around the brave, unsung Women’s Airforce Pilots of World War Two. Ella's new book, A New York Secret, is the first in her new trilogy, Daughters of New York and published on March 12th, 2021. Laced with all the glamour of New York, the book is set in an exquisite Uptown restaurant where Lily Rose is training to become head chef in the 1940's. Ella traveled to New York to research the book, which involved going incognito on foodie tours, visiting some of New York's most famous restaurants, and exploring the atmospheric streets of Greenwich Village. The whole experience resulted in her developing a serious addiction to cannoli, a passion for The Strand Bookstore, a love for The Village, and three new novels set in New York, all to be released in 2021. The second book in the trilogy, The Lost Girl of Berlin, is publishing on July 12th, 2021, and is set in the aftermath of the Second World War amongst the ruins of Berlin and then, in fabulous post war New York. The book tells the story of Kate Mancini, an American war correspondent who breaks all the rules and rescues a German orphan girl from a ruined house in Berlin, and is the culmination of Ella's travels to Berlin and the German countryside, and her research into New York. Ella was born in Adelaide, Australia, and was educated at the University of Adelaide, completing a music degree in classical piano at the Elder Conservatorium, and an arts degree with a double major in History and English Literature. Ella lives in Melbourne, Australia with her family. Ella's house is run by two very elderly and special Italian Greyhounds, and one puppy called Sassy who thinks she is the boss! And Ella's garden is managed by four chickens, Miss Pertelote, Annie, Harriet and Fox's Dinner. Ella has recently signed a nine-book deal with Hachette UK imprint Bookouture. Bookouture have published all of Ella’s previous books, which have sold over 700,000 copies and will also be releasing Ella's new, three-book New York series for publication in 2021. This sweeping historical trilogy, featuring unforgettable characters, will tell the stories of dazzling hopes and difficult dreams in America, before, during and after the Second World War. Also in 2021, German publishing house Aufbau will be releasing seven of Ella’s novels, four of her backlist books, as well as her new trilogy in German.
