A great believer in living happily ever after, Elise began her lifelong obsession with the romance and paranormal genres when she was far too young to be reading either. After thirty-five years of marriage to the love of her life, she now knows great relationships don’t just magically happen, they take work . . . which doesn’t mean writing about them can’t be a whole lot of fun!
While raising a family, Elise established a career as a counselor and family therapist. Seeking an escape from the stresses of her work, she discovered the world of fan fiction, and her timid writer’s muse made its voice heard. Several million hits, more than twenty thousand reviews, and an e-mail from an acquisitions editor at The Writer’s Coffee Shop later, and her life found a new and fascinating direction.
Elise likes to see her characters grow, experience passion and adventure, tackle some difficult issues, and find lasting love . . . eventually.
