Ellie is my name

Born in Guyana, South America, and educated in various countries of Africa, the Middle East, and the UK, C.M Rubin began her career in London at ACC (ITC Film Distributors) and EMI Films.

C. M. Rubin has developed numerous entertainment and book projects in New York and London over the past 20 years. Born in Guyana, South America, and educated in various countries of Africa, the Middle East, and the UK, she began her career in London at ACC (ITC Film Distributors) and EMI Films. From there she moved to Columbia Tri-star, where she managed several entertainment projects and rose to senior marketing and publicity positions. After relocating to New York in 1988, she developed a number of properties for a major independent entertainment distributor and book publisher.

Ms. Rubin’s first children's picture book,
Eleanor, Ellatony, Ellencake, and Me, introduced the spunky character Eleanor, who ultimately decides that Ellie is the name that suits her best. The book received widespread critical acclaim, having won the iParenting Media Award, Children's Choices Award 2004, Teacher's Choices Award 2004, and Bronze Gold Ink Award 2004. Its delightful sequel, Ellie: The Perfect Dress for Me, was released in September 2005.

"Helping kids build great self-esteem, teaching them good values and encouraging them to make the right choices is crucial in the early years," says Ms. Rubin. "The child that has the inner strength to be a caring, creative, resourceful and independent thinker is the emotionally healthy child. I hope parents see Ellie as the best kind of role model for their child".

C.M. Rubin lives with her husband, two children and their dog in New York City.
