She has led several creative writing workshops with a focus on craft, publication, networking opportunities for writers, and cross-arts collaboration.Ellis was a recipient of the San Francisco Foundation's Joseph Henry Jackson Literary Award and Barbara Deming Memorial Fund for her fiction. A VONA/Voices Alumna and Kimbilio Fellow, she is currently a prose editor for great weather for MEDIA and The Account: A Journal of Poetry, Prose & Thought. Bone Broth is her first novel. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri.


Lyndsey Ellis digs deep into the history and psyche of St. Louis's Black community to share the complicated lives of a mother and her three grown children living in the shadow of Michael Brown's murder. The characters are tender and caustic. They fight one another as families do and hold secrets to their chests like cards in a poker game, afraid someone will call their bluff. Bone Broth is an engaging, thought-provoking read.

Melanie S. Hatter, author of Malawi's Sisters

With a sharp eye for detail that brings every character to bright, shining life, Lyndsey Ellis fearlessly explores the secrets that are a family's true inheritance. Bone Broth broke my heart and put it back together in even better shape. Chris L. Terry, author of Black Card
