Elle is a thirty-something Southern California native. In the daytime, she is a nurse practitioner. She earned her first undergraduate degree in English from the University of California, Irvine. She writes sexy contemporary romance with smart heroines, and sweet but strong love interests. She also writes young adult and middle grade under the name Erika Cruz.
Elle currently lives in Orange County, California with her husband and two young children.
One day when she is not feeling lazy, Elle will get professional head shots done. For now, please enjoy this old but goofy Snapchat filter photo.
