I slipped my tank top over my head and pulled it down as I caught a glimpse of the scar that stretched across the left side of my lower stomach. It triggered a memory of who I thought I would be forever; a useless piece of someone’s property.

Elaine is a Florida native who recently packed up and moved her family to Utah. She is a stay at home mom to two younger children and runs a crafting business named Frills & Freckles from home. When she's not cleaning up after her kiddos or using her creative mind for a customer, you can find her satisfying her need for her favorite TV series or listening to music. Though finding time to write often seems like a lost cause, she uses every free minute to work on her debut novel, Keep Me Safe.


Tell me about yourself, and your writing.
A: It’s pretty boring, honestly. I wrote the outline for Keep Me Safe for an assignment when I was in college, and it constantly nagged at me to actually write the story. It took a day over an entire year because I have two young children, but I FINALLY wrote it!

How long have you been writing? How many published books do you have, and what genres?
A: This is my first book. And it took 366 days to write. And it’s contemporary romance, subgenre of suspense.

Do you write in multiple genres or just one? If just one, do you ever consider straying outside your genre?
A: Maybe one day. But I’m not one of those people where book ideas and scenes come easily. It takes me a long time to develop them in my head first.

Are you a plotter or do you write from the seat of your pants?
A: I think. And think, and think and think. It’s awful. I can’t write out of order, so sometimes I get stuck in one place for longer than I should allow myself to be.

What is a typical writing day like for you?
A: Nap time I can get in a little bit if there isn’t house cleaning to do. Then I can write after my kids go to bed. But not everyday! My husband travels for roughly half the year, so I don’t write on the evenings he’s home. Good reason why it took me a whole year to finish it ;)

Who do you love to read? Favorite authors, favorite books?
A: My inspiration for writing a book came from Ronie Kendig and Irene Hannon. They’re Christian fiction/romance writers. I have read everything they’ve ever done, and I’m always in awe. But my other favorite author since finding the Indie world is Colleen Hoover. I have so many that I ADORE, but she ‘takes the cake’ for me, so to speak.

What is something you'd like to accomplish in your writing career next year?
A: Honestly, I just want people to love my books. Would I love to be a best seller? Sure. But the odds of that are astronomical. So all I hope for is that people love what I write. That makes it worth it to me.

If you could have one paranormal ability, what would it be?
A: I honestly have no clue!

If you could keep a mythical/ paranormal creature as a pet, what would you have?
A: A unicorn. My poor five year old loooooves them and gets so upset that she can’t have one!

Tell us a little about your latest release.
A: It’s a little bit of a bunch of good stuff. Hot officer, non-annoying female character, funny secondary characters, and a bunch of drama in certain places. I’ve pulled a lot of my real life people and experiences and put it in the story, and it works!

What is something that you absolutely can't live without? (Other than family members)
A: Reeses peanut butter cups and my TV shows. I’d rather die a slow, painful death without them.

Could you ever co author a book with someone? If so, who would you choose, and what would you write?
A: I probably could. But it would have to be past tense. Because I’ve tried writing anything else, and I get so screwed up.

What are some of your other hobbies outside of writing?
A: Anything DIY, really. I own a craft business, and that’s pretty much all I have time for anymore.

What is something you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet. Why not?
A: Ride on a boat. Other than the ferry at Disney World. I grew up in Florida and have never been on a boat. Weird, right?

If you were on the staff to have a book adapted to movie, what would you pick?
Thoughtless series. I seriously loooove me some Kellan. And you know he’d be hot.

What is a talent you wish you had, but don't?
A: Public speaking! I don’t know if that’s a talent, but I always wanted to be a sportscaster on tv if I couldn’t be a band teacher.

Favorite color?
A: Blue!

Weather: Hot or cold?
A: In the middle! I’m a low 70’s kind of gal.

Favorite place to read?
A: My bed. I have a certain pillow for my head, a certain one to prop up my iPad lol

Favorite meal:
A: Anything southern. Like…really southern. Collard greens, pinto beans, meatloaf.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink.
A: Sweet tea, of course! I’m a southern girl through and through.

If you could travel anywhere and do anything, no limits or money holding you back, where would you go?
A: I have too many places I want to visit for that. So it would have to be a really long trip!
