Please give a warm welcome to author Elle Lee
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m 24 years old and currently live in Colorado. I have a Corgi-Mini Australian Shepherd mix named Peanut. In addition to being a new author, I’m also a medical student.
Some things about me are I like to write sweet and funny romances that always give my characters a happily ever after. I’m a huge soda addict and dessert queen. When I’m not writing, you can usually find me outdoors or spoiling my dog.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I have always loved reading books, and when I was younger, I dabbled in writing short stories. I was never confident that my writing was good enough, but it gave me an escape from reality as I pursued a career in medicine. Now that I have this opportunity to it’s surreal that I’m an author.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I love reading the books of Silver Springs Library, and when Mia sent an email about the opportunity to write in her spin-off series, it was something I couldn’t pass up. When I sat down to write Moonlit Jade, I wanted to draw experiences from my own life, so Jade has a little bit of me in her.
What are you working on now?
I’m still finishing up Moonlit Jade to get her ready for release, but I’m also working on a contemporary short story for the Fearless Charity Anthology.
Do you have any quirks while working?
When I’m writing, I need to have a soda and candy next to me. I think the sugar helps my brain work, or I’m just running on a sugar high.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope everyone enjoys reading Moonlit Jade. I wanted to make Jade a character people could relate to and find connections with their own lives. I plan to continue writing and publishing my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
There is a lot of work that goes into publishing your work, and the easiest part is writing. The hard part is the social media aspect. Make sure you’re interacting and respectful to your audience because they are the ones supporting your dreams. But other than that, if you want to start publishing your work, do it. Don’t let anyone stop you or convince you otherwise.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Thank you so much for supporting my dreams and following me along this crazy journey. Love You, Mobsters!
