Ellen Gable – Award-Winning Author

Welcome to my website!

Ellen Gable Hrkach photoI am the author of eleven books and contributor to numerous other books.  I have ghostwritten four books. My new book is Remembering Mom.

My newest novel, Ella’s Promise is the third in the Great War Great Love series. Charlotte’s Honor, the second in the Great War-Great Love series was published in 2018. The first, Julia’s Gifts, was released in November of 2017 and was a finalist in the 2019 IAN Book Awards. Ella’s Promise was a finalist in Religious Fiction in both the 2020 IAN Book Awards and the 2020 International Book Awards.

I am also an editor, speaker, publisher, interior book designer (print and Kindle), book coach and transcriber. If you’re interested in any of these services, please click  here.

I was honored to be a recipient of the my Alma Mater’s Hall of Fame (Triton Regional High School, Class of ’77).

I am past President of the Catholic Writers Guild (2012-2015). I’ve appeared numerous times on EWTN’s Bookmark with Doug Keck, EWTN radio and other Catholic TV and radio shows. An occasional presenter at Catholic conferences, I enjoy speaking on a variety of topics: Pregnancy Loss, Theology of the Body, Responsible Parenthood, Natural Family Planning, Homeschooling and various writing topics.

My husband, James Hrkach, and I are the parents of five adult sons (and grandparents to one precious grandson) and we live in Pakenham, Ontario Canada.  We are on the Diocesan Marriage Preparation Team and we currently teach Theology of the Body to the Grade 9 classes at St. Joseph’s High School in Renfrew, Ontario.
