More About the Author
Nowhere Left to hide, her latest novel is based in California and charts the journey of Natasha Parker, a British student who seeks to escape her childhood ghosts. Novelist Rowan Coleman wrote the blurb and described it as a "heartfelt tale."
Lost in your time, latest novel, based in Paris
Rock star or husband - which would you choose?
Ah, the dangers of the internet! We've all been warned, but do we take notice?
When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star...A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.
Elle's particular strength is writing positive stories with a strong theme of being lost and finding yourself again. Although she broaches difficult subjects in her novels, the characters turn out to be fighters, not victims. Every emotion is conveyed and her style has been described as "lyrical" and appeals to a wide age group, which is a rarity.
Having overcome many obstacles in her life, including a very difficult childhood, she chose to reconstruct her life. Rather than writing a memoir like many abuse victims she prefers to marry fiction with some of her own experiences.
Elle's short stories and articles reflect her interests and fascinations. A passionate writer, she uses these to express her feelings and dismay at the injustices of this world.
Lost in your time, available now. Novelist meets French rock star, prepare for the sparkles.

I am struck, Nowhere Left to Hide, showcases how truly valuable our friendships are and how much our female friends, in particular, mean to us as women.
Natasha, the main character, is a young university student who has endured horrific abuses in her life, yet somehow has been able to hold that pain close, see it clearly for what it is, and use it to be more conscientious and sympathetic towards others.
Even those people who were labeled as wicked or difficult, Natasha was able to see past their facade and see their pain was much like hers. Typically these types of people push others away, but Natasha helped them to see their sameness.
Being witness to Natasha's sensitivity, turned people around. Suddenly they were understood. Suddenly they were accepted. Suddenly, they could let that big huge wall down and show their true selves. And isn't that what we all want? To be understood? To be accepted? And to feel safe enough to let the guard down?
Natasha Parker is a smart and beautiful young woman who has endured a childhood of distrust , pain , and abuse. She has closed herself off while finding ways to hide from those who caused her scars.
While attending college in England , she is offered to go to Santa Barbara for her last year , while a bit scared , shes excited for the chance. Once there she has no problem finding friends , she hits it off with Mike , Kirsten and Tyler. Her and Kirsten become best friends and Natasha starts spending more time with Tyler, who is trying to figure her out. While trying to build a new life for herself she is still haunted with her past, and finds it hard to open up and trust others. While Tyler is trying to take it slow and not be pushy , Natasha finally opens up to him and tells him her dark secrets, it's a difficult road for her to go down , but it gives her a sense of relief , and helps to make life easier.
Natasha finds love with Tyler , she is finally happy , but after graduation her visa expires and she will have to return to England . With both of them going through emotional hell , Tyler is determined to be with his woman , and does something that no one was expecting.
I enjoyed this book , it is emotional , yet funny and easy going. Natasha had a horrible childhood , but she stayed strong and upbeat. Its fresh and clean and I will be passing it on to my teen daughter and mother.
To read this book, is to take a ride of an emotional carousel, laughter included.
A terrific book by an incredible author and an exceptional woman, Elle Amberley.
