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.
When my serious side peeks out, she's called LEE STRAUSS. She likes to write upper YA about real things that have happened in the past, or made up things that could quite possibly happen in the future.
This blog is about books, mine and other fab authors', but occasionally I'll share about other topics.
Thanks for dropping by!

A Contest for my British Friends - 25 Pounds Amazon Coupon!
Okay, you're probably wondering how a Canadian got hold of an Amazon coupon in British Pounds (dang, I wish my keyboard had a Pound sign. And yes, some kind soul did tell me how, but now I forget who. And how.)
You may have heard me talk about taking a Teaching English as a Second Language course, which I did, and, if you recommended the course to someone and they registered, you got this great Amazon coupon. My son registered and I got the coupon.
But instead of trying to figure out how to spend it from this side of the pond, I thought, why not give it away to one of my British friends. Old or New!!
So here's how to enter:
Just sign up for my newsletter (see link, top left column). It's new you see, and when I finally send out my first newsletter, I'd like to have actual people to send it to. Also, I love the British and I want more British friends.
Yes, I've been to England, luv, a few times. Actually saw Shakespeare In Love in the cinema, once. (Did you catch my British accent there? =)
If you want an additional chances to win just tweet and FB this:
@elle_strauss wants British friends. Find out how to win a 25 Pounds Amazon card at www.ellestraussbooks.blogspot.com #scotlandrocks #englandrocks
You can enter even if you don't live in England, as long as you know how to shop at Amazon.co.uk
Just tell me in the comments if you have 1, 2 or 3 entries.
Contest is open until Sunday. I'll announce the winner on Monday the 19th.
Please pass it on!
