“Elly Lonon’s quick-witted humor is just the salve we need for these tumultuous political times.” – Christopher Monks, Managing Editor of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and Author of The Ultimate Game Guide to Your Life

“Elly is an engaging and dynamic performer…innate comic timing.” Marcy Thompson, Writer and Producer, Studio B
When her oncologist suggested learning a new language to help recover from chemo brain, Elly Lonon chose to learn HTML which led to the creation of her blog. Her writing has been featured at The New York Times, McSweeney’s, Scary Mommy, Club Mid, SexIs, Your Tango, Sammiches And Psych Meds, and a disappointing number of now defunct sites. She’s also appeared in print within the pages of O Magazine and several parenting humor anthologies.
This FALL, her graphic novel with illustrator Joan Reilly will be released by powerHouse Books. AMONGST THE LIBERAL ELITE: The Road Trip Exploring Societal Inequities Solidified by Trump (RESIST), follows Alex and Michael on a cross-country road trip as they try to reconnect with their fellow Americans, understand how Trump got elected, and strive to learn what it really means to resist and get “woke.” You can find out all about that book at AmongstTheLiberalElite.com.
Elly really, really hates writing in the third person. She does, however, really like hearing from people – especially people capable of preparing their own meals. So drop her an email sometime. Or now. Now is good, too.
Elly is represented by Thompson Literary Agency.
