Elest Ali

Elest Ali is a writer, reforming goth and literary pervert with cats. Once the food editor at Time Out Abu Dhabi, she abandoned the high life of haute cuisine and cowering restaurateurs in a bid to suffer for her art. Now a scraping freelancer by day and eccentric author by night, she is labouring with love over various personal projects including Pixi and the Boy That Never Was, which is a kind of novel. Elest is also a closet film buff who has contributed to both volumes of Intellect Publishing’s World Cinema Directory: Japan. London born and bred, she currently resides in Turkey.
