TAKE A PEEK AT ELLE'S JOURNEY

THE EARLY YEARS

Elle was born on Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane, Washington to parents who taught her the value of hard work. She grew up as a military brat moving from place to place, alas, only stateside in lovely places like Glasgow, Montana, Abilene, Texas and various places in California and Washington. Elle got her creative streak from her talented artist mother, her tenacity from her wonderful father and her inspiration from her writing buddy and delightful sister, Delilah Devlin.

CAREER & FAMILY LIFE

As a former member of the Army and Air Force Reserves, Elle’s traveled across the United States and to Germany, managed a full-time job, and raised three wonderful children, Courtney, Adam and Megan. She and her husband, Cleve, have even tried raising exotic birds in the Texas Hill Country. Ask her and she’ll tell you what it’s like to go toe-to-toe with an angry 350-pound ostrich.

2000

Elle (left) always loved playing make-believe and inventing stories of adventure and fun. At the turn of the century, she and her sister, Delilah (right) decided it was about time to take writing by the horns and make it happen! They challenged each other to write a romance novel. After chapter one, they decided to join forces and learn the craft together. Their first four novels were co-authored. After that, they took off on their own. Elle writes a variety of genres from romantic comedy to suspense.

2004

In 2004, Elle left her successful career as an Information Technology Manager to pursue writing full time. She loves escaping into her stories, learning and growing with each character and plot. Elle writes because she likes to experience and evoke all the emotions from happy to sad, funny to frightening. She digs them all!

PRESENT DAY

At home in Northwest Arkansas, Elle is busy writing tales of murder and suspense for Harlequin Intrigue and her own publishing company, Twisted Page Inc. She ‘s written over 150 stories since. 

Balancing her time between writing, running her publishing business, family, her dogs and traveling, Elle stays busy. She loves hearing from readers and is active on Facebook.
