currently lives with her daughter. She graduated college with a BFA in
creative writing and started a graphic design business a few years
later. She developed a passion for reading and writing at an early age
and loves to write what she loves to read — that’s romance with a
paranormal twist. Her desk is constantly cluttered with journals, sticky
notes, and torn out pieces of paper full of ideas. When not working,
Elena loves to spend time with her family, travel the globe, curl up
with a good book, and catch up on her soaps.
Elena will also be a featured author at the Facebook Summer
Erotica Event –the SINsational Sirens Showcase running from August 5th
to the 9th.
Now, Without Further Ado, Here’s MY Interview with Elena!
When did you know you wanted to write erotic romance?
I’ve always known that I wanted an element of romance in my
books. Those are usually my favorite types to read, be it in classics,
paranormals, ya, or adult, etc, but I decided to try my hand with the
erotic a few years ago and got my first published book, Three Made in
Heaven, out of it. One of the scenes in the book actually came from a
dream I had and even though it wasn’t one of those dreams, I was aware
that something hot had recently happened between my characters. I just
had so much fun writing this book and was surprised how easily and
naturally writing the love scenes came to me.
Have you always been a sexual person, or grew that way later in life?
I think I have always been. Sex is beautiful, wonderful, messy,
sweet, dirty…throw in people who care about each other and it’s magical.
Who’s your Favorite character from your novels, why, and from what book?
This is a tough question to answer. I am not sure I could pick a
favorite because I get so attached to all of them, but I will say that
in UNSHATTERED, my hero’s dad became so endearing to me as the story
progressed. I had no idea he would have such an impact on me or my
heroine even as I was plotting this story. You don’t always spend a lot
of time thinking about secondary characters when you first get an idea
or during the initial plotting, so this was pleasantly surprising and
added so much more to the story I think.
Have you learned anything about yourself since you’ve been writing?
Absolutely! For one, I’ve learned to have more confidence in
myself and my ability as a writer. It’s not just a lifelong dream
anymore, I am actually doing what I love and have always wanted to do.
What’s your short and long term goals as a writer?
My short term goals are to finish the plethora of projects I have plotted. ;) There is so much in my head right now, it needs to come out.
Long term is more of the same, to keep coming up with and writing
stories, hopefully ones people will want to read. And also to improve my
craft as a writer. I think that’s so important.
What’s your WIP / next release?
My next release is called Pack Warriors, A Romance on the Go story
from Evernight Publishing and is scheduled for release sometime this
August. It’s an MFM Wolf-Shifter ménage. Lot’s of lovin’ and fighting
and of course more lovin’. Super excited for its release.
My WIP is book two in the Made in Heaven series called Ocean’s Three,
an MFM erotic paranormal ménage romance that takes place on a cruise
ship. Ocean’s Three incorporates the same soul mate and psychic elements
as the first book, but delves deeper into it. I am a little more than
halfway done with this one. I have a few stories outlined and ready to
go after, including three books so far in a brand new series about
dragon shifters. It’s going to be super hot, in more ways than one, and
yes, pun intended because I am just that cheesy.
Name something that gets you in the mood and elaborate – if possible.
You mean besides watching Sam Heughan in Outlander and a shirtless
Ryan Paevey on General hospital? Chocolate. Bring me chocolate. Oh and
coffee. Coffee and chocolate are the ways to my heart…and other parts of
