Eleanor Brown is the New York Times and international bestselling author of The Weird Sisters, Any Other Family, and The Light of Paris. Her debut novel, The Weird Sisters, received numerous honors—in addition to winning the Colorado Book Award, it was an Indie Next pick, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, and a Barnes & Noble Discover selection. Any Other Family is a finalist for the 2023 Colorado Book Award. Eleanor’s writing has also appeared in newspapers, magazines, anthologies, and journals, including The Washington Post, CrossFit Journal, Crab Orchard Review, and Publishers Weekly. She lives in Colorado and teaches and presents on writing at conferences and writing centers nationwide.


What Eleanor looks for in a Book Project mentee: I describe my role as a mentor as part life coach, part therapist, and part writing craft guide. The only things I expect from writers I choose are that they be voracious readers and eager writers. While writers have come to me to work on everything from blogs and picture books to fantasy novels and self-help, my specialties are upmarket commercial and “book club” fiction and memoir, and young adult and middle grade.
