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!

The Casey and Nate of Clockwise Fame Video! and Nano News
Too funny, eh? (sneaky insert of stereotypical Canadianism)
I'm being interviewed over at Fairytale nerd today. Find out about my most interesting writing quirk and what scares me the most.
So how is everyone's Nano writing going? If you've been following my blog you'll know that I'm doing #nanowake, a version of nanowrimo, but not nanowrimo.
And it's been hard. I'm forcing myself to make my 1k a day goal (down from a lofty 2k). I'm just not in the zone this year.
Here's my process: write a sentence, check email, write a sentence, check twitter, write a sentence, check Amazon.
I tell you, it's agonizing. But, I do have 10k new words to show for it, and I'm determined to keep going.
How about you? Are you in the zone? Or squeezing water from a stone?
