Hi. I’m Elle Casey, a full-time hybrid author (hybrid, meaning I publish some of my books myself and some with a traditional publisher – Montlake Romance). I published my first novel WRECKED on January 1, 2012 and have published on average a book every six weeks 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 and fellow-author 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; when I was younger, Stephen King was my guy. I just love his writing style and the way he makes characters come alive on the page.
In 2010, 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, a dog, and two horses — 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 — 2014 marked our first harvest. My life is simply crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
So that’s me in a nutshell. 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.
