I'm author ELLE STRAUSS and welcome to my website!
I write fun, lower Young Adult (teen) fiction to do with whimsical things like time-travel, fairies and merfolk.
When my serious side peeks out, she's called LEE STRAUSS. She likes to write upper YA about real things that have happened in the past, or made up things that could quite possibly happen in the future.
This blog is about books, mine and other fab authors', but occasionally I'll share about other topics.
Thanks for dropping by!

Friday Four or Five
2. Structure experiment update: I’ve made it to the midpoint reversal stage, which equals the half way point! Happy to be here. I hope I can get through the second half as quickly. Took time off to work on Agent Awesome’s edits for PLAYING WITH MATCHES. Hopefully it will be sent off to Submissionville soon. If you follow me on Twitter or FB you'll have heard about my near cardiac arrest yesterday, when my edits didn't save! Eek. Had to redo...thankfully I had most notes on hard copy and only had to re-write one scene from memory (which is bad enough). Back on track now.
3. Agent sister JA Souder, is hosting a SECRET AGENT contest. If you are looking for an agent, check it out. Also, Nathan Branford’s colleague, Sarah LaPolla is looking for new clients.
4. My agent, Natalie Fischer (also actively seeking clients), of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary agency has posted on their Facebook page on her template for a good query letter. .
5. My good friend and fellow writer Denise Jaden interviewed the fabulous Lisa Schoeder with questions on writing on verse. Good advice if you’re thinking of trying it.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
PS: Isn't Survivor crazy!
