“A novel approach to online discovery.” – The New York Times
Book Cover for: Ella, Stephen Moran


Stephen Moran
Dexter meets Lolita in this genre bending psychological thriller Ella Thomas is a beautiful 20-year-old writer haunted by a traumatic past. Trapped in a small-town where everyone knows her secrets, she flees on a road-trip across America in search of adventure and to find the man that holds the key to understanding the violent days of her childhood. Two mysterious men stalk Ella on the odyssey from Massachusetts to Las Vegas - an FBI agent that suspects her of being a serial killer and an assassin with a familiar face she can't quite remember. At the core of her journey of self-discovery is the search for Ray Holden. Everyone tells her he is dead, but she refuses to believe it and her insistence on finding him sets off a chain of events that culminates in a shocking final turn. Follow her journey to learn the answers to the burning questions. Who is Ray Holden? And more importantly... Is the FBI correct? Is Ella Thomas a serial killer? Praise for ELLA Totally Enthralling says author Shelby Kent-Stewart 'Let's be clear. Ella Thomas is not your typical heroine, no cardboard cut-out she. What the author has created is a fabulously-flawed and deviously-delicious flesh and blood persona, a woman on a mission of discovery and destruction. In the hands of a lesser writer, this book might fall into the category of 'just another book about a serial killer' but this could not be further from the truth. Beautifully-crafted, the book's locales are detailed for texture but never ponderous, the flashbacks both terrifying and poignant, a remarkable feat given the subject matter.This book is mesmerizing mayhem from beginning to end, one I shall read again and highly recommend. More please, Mr. Moran.
