But that doesn’t stop her from writing erotic stories filled with strong heroines and sexy alphas. Elle knew she wanted to write novels for a living at the age of six. She put her words into action by experimenting with short stories.
As she matured, the length of her stories grew until she was penning full-length novels. Prominent names in the publishing arena, such as Harlequin and Samhain, recognized her talent and bought her manuscripts, giving Elle the support she needed to make her dreams a reality.
Elle, who graduated from York University with a BA in English, has written several bestsellers since those early days. Even though she has written many standalone books, most of her novels are part of a series.
Writing a series is more challenging because she has so many details to track. Additionally, she needs to know the individual characters intimately because some of them will get their own series and stories down the line.
On the other hand, the setting is easier to maneuver and explore. Once she creates the universe in the first book, she can re-use it effortlessly in the books that follow. The author doesn’t follow a particular writing schedule.
She treats each novel as a distinct project with unique needs and demands. The only requirement Elle has is silence. Noise distracts her, and that includes music. The author does most of her work in an office with a big fluffy chair and bookshelves on every wall.
On a nice day, she will migrate to the deck. Although, she occasionally spends more time staring longingly at the pool than is necessary. Her dog will also complicate matters because it keeps fighting for her attention.
Some of Elle’s fans are unaware of her collaborative efforts with Jen Frederick, which isn’t surprising because she uses a pen name (Erin Watt). If you ask the author to choose between writing by herself and writing with a partner, she will tell you that both avenues have advantages.
She enjoys working with other authors because it allows her to brainstorm with like-minded individuals. She can overcome writer’s block by bouncing ideas off someone else. On the other hand, when she’s alone, Elle can work at her own pace. More importantly, she can make decisions without consulting other people.
Elle Kennedy Awards
Elle’s collection of accolades includes a RITA award, as well as Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Best Book and People’s Choice Awards nominations.
Best Elle Kennedy Books
The author doesn’t spend every hour writing. She also paints and plays the keyboard. Elle Kennedy’s best books include:
The Deal: Hannah Wells got more than she bargained for when she agreed to tutor the captain of a hockey team. Hannah was in a tough spot. She had way too much baggage, especially where sex and seduction were concerned.
But she couldn’t afford to play it safe. Hannah had finally located the man of her dreams, a person that could turn her on, and she had no intention of letting him get away. But stepping out of her comfort zone meant pushing the boundaries with her student.
Garrett Graham did not mind. He understood the rules. Her tutor was using him to make another man jealous, and he was more than happy to play along. But then a kiss and a night of wild sex changed everything.
The Mistake: John Logan had it all. The college junior could get any girl he wanted. His status as a hockey star gave Logan more advantages than most. But the athlete’s cocky demeanor was a facade. Internally, Logan was struggling.
He was anxious about his future and where life would take him after graduation. Grace Ivers was the perfect distraction. But he pushed her away with a thoughtless mistake, and now he’s determined to win her back.
Unfortunately, Grace is no longer the shy butterfly he remembers. She has no intention of rolling over for Logan. She will make him work for his second chance.
