A "military brat," Elle was born in Germany and spent her childhood in such far-flung places as Puerto Rico, Charleston, S.C., Italy, and Washington D.C. Sadly, the only language she ever became semi-fluent in is English. She writes romantic comedies that are loose riffs on the popular fairy tales she read as a child--stories she still loves as an adult.
Elle's first self-published romantic comedy, The Frog Prince, became an Amazon bestseller in 2010--a distinction it kept through the summer of 2012 when it peaked at #1 on Amazon's Top 100 List for Humor. Her other novels include Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up, Alice in Wonderland, and Gilding the Lily-pad. Elle lives in Denver, Colorado, and keeps a teenage boy and a miniature dachshund named Bacon around the house to provide comic relief.
