About me:I am an author who writes in several genre's including: futuristic science fiction, and mystery romance novels that have a touch of the paranormal running through them. I started writing fiction seriously during my lunch hours at work. I needed the diversion since most of my writing at that time was devoted to technical writing. With my first published novel,I guess it started with my smoking. Yes, I used to smoke. I don't now, haven't for many years. But one day while sitting in my office during a break, after a real rough morning, I lit a cigarette. I watched the curled smoke from my cigarette rise toward the corner of the office disappearing into a crack in the wall. I watched this for several minutes wondering where the smoke was going. Was it just being swallowed up into the wall, or did it vanish into the nooks and crannies that were hidden from view and led to God knows where. Needless to say, my imagination took hold and before I knew it I was writing the first chapter to my science fiction/mystery/romance novel Sarah's Landing-I-Contact. I have since taken the smoking aspect out of the story and replaced that part of it with a human being -- the lead character -- which ultimately led to the birth of four complete novels in the Sarah's Landing Series....More about the series, excerpts, and reviews can be read on my website: www.sarahslanding.com or http://elenadb.home.comcast.net. My second published novel, a Romance/Suspense/Mystery Thriller, The House On The Bluff, first came into existence due to a mysterious, seemingly uninhabited house on a ledge that overlooked the ocean. A place where I had never seen anyone enter or leave in the many times I had visited there. It was as if the house sat there waiting for something or someone. It was a foreboding looking house, especially on a cloudy day. Still, there was something majestic about the way it stood its ground against the ocean crashing up against its seawall, and the mystery surrounding it -- just added to the equation. This, too, lent itself to a three book series entitled The Legacy Series....More about this series, excerpts and reviews can be read on my website: http://www.sarahslanding.com or http://elenadb.home.comcast.net. My third published novel, Time~Slip, is one in the Romantic Paranormal Suspense genre. At present, it is only available as an e-book, but hopefully it, too, will be released in paperback. This novel had its birth while researching ancient histories and lost civilizations. The thought occurred to me as I read certain books that what if, what they say is true, about a continent that disappeared in the Pacific? What if it all did happen exactly the way they say it did? But what if it all wasn't lost? What if a part of it was trapped in a sort of bubble, but no one, just by looking, would ever discover it? What then? What if some young archeologist decided to search for ancient artifacts and was caught in a seaquake, an undersea earthquake that opened the door to a portal that only the Earth remembers -- and to an undersea world that shouldn't exist?....As with the others, more on this story, an except as well as a review can be read on my website: http://sarahslanding.com or http://elenadb.home.comcast.net .. ..Myspace Layouts + Myspace Graphics
