I’ve been described by many people as many things, including (but not limited to):

  • an author
  • a nice young lady (thanks grandma!)
  • a pretty decent human being
  • very talkative
  • an avid reader
  • kinda weird
  • awesome

(Okay, that last one was just me, but I’m sure other people have thought it!)

My name is Elyse, but you can call me El, or “hey you”. I have written many novels, most of which will never see the light of day (although the one about the gay vampires in Medieval Russia is pretty terrible fantastic).

What has seen the light of day are five novels that came out in 2017. They consist of a four book mixed-pairing series (The Seasons of Love quartet), and a stand-alone Olympic diving romance titled Heels Over Head. You can find more information about those over on my aptly-titled Books page.

I have three passions in life: writing, reading, and traveling. I’ve lived and worked in some of the most amazing places in the world, and try to travel to new places every time I get a chance.

Here’s my author bio for blogs:

Elyse is an author and world-traveler, whose unique life experiences have helped to shape the stories that she wants to tell. She writes romances with LGBTQIA+ characters and relationships, and believes that every person deserves a Happily Ever After. When she’s not staring futilely at her computer screen, Elyse spends her time adding stamps to her passport, catching up on her terrifying TBR list, and learning to be a better adult.

You can find Elyse online at:

Here’s my author bio for people with really short attention spans:

An author and avid traveler, Elyse writes LGBTQIA+ romance novels in between seeing the world and reading everything she can get her hands on. She’s on twitter @ElyseSpringer.
