Elly Ha is a Korean-American dark fantasy and contemporary writer who goes by she/they pronouns. Their love for writing began with the grotesque of the Discovery Health Channel and the magical worlds within games like The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. They tend to write on subjects of mental illness, queerness, and the Asian American diaspora because they are ace/aro, non-binary, depressed, and anxiety-ridden. If not writing, they are out at Kung Fu Tea, playing on their Nintendo Switch, or wishing they had a cat. Though she uses gender neutral pronouns in this bio, she is perfectly okay if you call her by she/her pronouns. Elly is represented by Thao Le of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.
