The caged bird sings with a fearful trill,
of things unknown but longed for still,
and his tune is heard on the distant hill,
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
Writing and finding himself in the field of memoir, remembrance, death and grief for as long as he can remember, Garrett Drew Ellis established himself as a professional writer in 2005 and as an End of Life Doula in 2019.

Garrett studied English at Central CT State University and has been a ghostwriter and author for almost 20 years. He has been a hospice volunteer. The author of “Write Until You Feel Better”, the forthcoming, “In Memoriam” and the forthcoming “On Blood & Water”, Garrett speaks at workshops, leads groups and works with individuals to process death and grief, document their lives and to help them do the same for others.
