More About the Author
Elissa Wilds is an award-winning author of....blah, blah, blah...Okay, I just can't write about myself in third person. It's too darn serious, and I recommend avoiding taking yourself too seriously. I'll begin again.
I write paranormal romantic fiction and metaphysical/new age non-fiction. I enjoy investigating all things paranormal and incorporating what I learn into my stories. I hold Bachelor degrees in Communication and English/Creative Writing and a Master's degree in Communication.
Like many writers, I have a full life that includes a career in the corporate world. Luckily, I've been blessed with a knack for multi-tasking, a lot of energy, and strong organizational skills. I have successfully managed both my creative and my corporate lives for twenty years (and continuing).
I'm often asked what I like most about writing. There are too many to list, but here's one of the top 5: I can write my stories sitting in my pajamas in the middle of the night or at a coffee shop on Sunday afternoon while sipping chai tea latte.
In addition to writing, I enjoy singing, reading, learning to play guitar, meditating, spending time with my family, and playing in nature as much and as often as possible.
Favorites: Cold Stone ice cream (cake batter with graham cracker crust sprinkled in -Yum!), Mom's mac and cheese, my friend Krissy's homemade baklava, Indian cuisine, chai tea.
Favorite music: (very eclectic!) Nickelback, Evanescence, Laura Powers, Emmylou Harris, KT Tunstall, Fiona Horne, Iris Dement, Kate Bush, Christopher Jak, Gavin Degraw, The Decemberists, Enigma, and many, many more, (Yes, I even still adore some 80's rock - Def Leppard, Journey)
Favorite movies: can't pick a favorite but I really enjoy anything with a supernatural or romantic theme (better if it has both!)
Television shows: I rarely watch television (I prefer books!), but when I do, I enjoy Supernatural, Spartacus, Ghost Hunters, American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, Vampire Diaries, and True Blood.
Some of my favorite things: Hawaii, poetry, deep thinkers, bonfires, live music, kitties, bunnies, amber oil, nag champa incense.
