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!

What Matters Remains
It's easy to forget what really matters in life, especially when we get so crazy busy with our stuff. I know I do. Every once in a while it's good to be reminded that life is short, to slow down and smell those proverbial roses, whatever that looks like to you.
Last year Henk's son, Nico, had a dream about his dad. It was a profound dream which included these words of wisdom: What matters remains.
Nico wrote a song. Then he told the story. Both videos are here. Stop for a moment, take a look and a listen. Breathe.
You'll be glad you did.
