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!

Those Ah-ha moments
I've had (and still have) a long, happy marriage, I've raised four kids who still bring me pride and joy, I've had travel adventure and excitement. And I've written books. Even if they never get wildly popular, they are there on the virtual shelf for my grandchildren to read someday. (No, I'm not a grandmother, yet, but my grand children and great grandchildren can get to know me a little from my books.)
I'm satisfied. So, would I still like to write more books and make more money? Sure. But, I don't need those things when I'm dead, so the pressure's off. If this sounds like I'm suicidal or something crazy like that, I'm not. I'm just not afraid of death. There's still plenty I'd like to do before I go, don't get me wrong. It's just all, you know, okay.
Anyway, enough heavy stuff! CLOCKED is out!!
Yes, indeed. If you've been wondering what Nate was thinking when he asked Casey to dance on a dare and what he thought of life in the 1860's and what he really thought about Casey, now you can know!
This 15,000 word novelette is only 1.95 on Amazon and Smashwords.
How about you? Have you had any ah-ha moments lately?
