Linda has known Elena for (ahem) a few years, and considers her one of the best writers she knows. (Insert Elena blushing!) Here’s what Elena says about her own work:
I write emotionally rich contemporary romances about dreams, love, and taking a chance on both. My stories reflect my belief that life is about the passions we pursue, the people who support us along the way, and never giving up on what we want.
I can't start work without coffee, fall asleep without reading, or listen to Broadway musicals without singing along (badly). I love to spend time with my husband and sons as well as weekends my girlfriends. I love rom-
This series which starts with the three Hanson brothers has been great fun. I started with Once More With You, where Army veteran Theo Hanson is called home to investigate an arson attack — only to discover he’s sharing a house with his former flame, Eden Barrett. And the heat between them is hotter than any fire burning around town. In Meant To Be His, Nick Hanson has one goal — get back to his finance job in New York. No part of that goal includes rescuing a dog or partnering with Dani Vaughn, his first love and Fable Notch’s newest veterinarian. In This Time For Us, rock star Cole Hanson returns home to recover from a tour bus accident. He doesn’t expect to end up posing as Mia Durant’s fiancé, but if that’s what it takes to help the woman he never stopped loving, he’s not going to let her down.

In these you’ll find forced proximity, brother’s best friend, single dad, along with lots of reoccurring side characters who I hope you’ll grow to love. I’m in the process of writing the seventh book in the series (Just Right For Him) where the Hanson brothers are getting their weddings! All the stories are interconnected standalone novels and reimagined fairy tales. My hope is that my readers always find heart-
My goals (besides writing even more)? Well, I’m on a never-

...and let me know where you think the best chocolate chip cookies are!
I’m on the internet a lot researching everything from arson (for book one) to how to make a cinnamon roll wedding cake (for book seven). I’ve learned so much – including that if you get pregnant on April Fool’s Day, your baby’s due date is Christmas Even. Oh… and which cars are best if you want to have sex in the back seat (Book six, if you’re wondering where to find the answer).
We'll be watching for that one, Elena! Thanks for the interview. As usual -
