Hi. I’m Elle Casey, a full-time independent writer (indie), and I confess that the photo on this page was taken three years ago when I didn’t sit on my butt all day writing and weighed a lot less .
I published my first novel WRECKED on January 1, 2012 and have published on average a book a month since. I quit my jobs as a lawyer and teacher early in 2013 to focus full time on my writing, and I couldn’t be happier. I love my work and even more so, my readers! Please be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you can stay current with what’s going on in my world. Here are a few videos I’ve done answering reader questions; some of them are long, so grab a snack! Elle Casey’s Youtube channel. I also write under the pen name Kat Lee, and as her, wrote one chick-lit/romance novel called Full Measure.
Okay, more about me… I’ve been reading since I was 4 and have read probably over a couple thousand books in my lifetime. I love, love, love books!! I can’t tell you how many things I’ve not gotten done and chores I’ve ignored because I was too busy reading, and how many nights I’ve stayed up until the sun began to rise, finishing up a good book.
I don’t have much time for reading these days, what with all the writing I’ve been doing, but my favorite genres are fantasy, paranormal, sci fi dystopian, and romance of all types. I used to adore thriller and horror novels, though not so much anymore. When I was younger, Stephen King was my guy and I still admire him greatly as a writer.
Three years ago I threw all caution to the wind, checked out of corporate life, and moved the family to southern France where I now live with my husband, three children, two dogs, two horses, and several other furry creatures – surrounded by vineyards, ancient Roman ruins, and wonderful, warm people I am proud to call friends. I’ve renovated an old barn and purchased a vineyard — this is our first harvest year. My life is simply crazy.
So that’s me in a nutshell. The writer-me anyway. Thanks for coming to my website. Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter and follow me on Twitter and Facebook. And please, if you like my books, tell your friends and family. Without you sharing my work, I would be nowhere in this writing business.
