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 (with a nice helping of romance!) When my serious side peeks out, she's called LEE STRAUSS. She likes to write upper YA/adult about romance in the past, present and future.
There's always a TIME for romance!!
This blog is about books, mine and other fab authors', but occasionally I'll share about other topics. Thanks for dropping by!

The Three Brains of Every Indie Author
I broke it down into three sections:
1) writing - the creative brain
2) editing - the critical brain
3) publishing - the business brain
I have it all laid out in a pretty Power Point presentation, which has been saved as a PDF. Click on the link if you want to see it.
They chose this night to dig the sidewalk up outside. I used it as an example of an exterior antagonist. =)
I was pretty nervous (my inner antagonist) but it went well.
