Ellis Aen

skonqlogo256Ellis Aen is the nom de plume of a genderqueer/trans author who embodies the persona of a skunk-fox/vixen on the internet.

Back before they had any of that figured out, they were busy growing up with their nose lost in the pages of science fiction and amazing animal stories. Despite a passion for reading, it wasn’t until stumbling upon the online furry community that they discovered a passion for writing.

After years of struggling with their own sense of identity, the expressive, welcoming (and sometimes a little weird) people in that community offered them an environment in which to explore themself and their boundaries. In creating worlds, characters, and ideas of their own, they would ultimately find the confidence to become the person they are, today (who is, consequently, also a little weird).

With interests that include the strange, the furry, the occult, the future, and the complexities of the self, Ellis enjoys bucking tradition and subverting expectations, and they are a strong opponent of the demonization of sex, sexuality, and fetishism.
