A Conversation With Elle E. Kay
Elle E. Kay lives on a farmette in the Back Mountain region of Pennsylvania. She is a born-again Bible believing Christian. Her website is updated with the latest information about her upcoming books. She also has a blog, where she writes mostly devotional posts based on traditional hymns.
When do you find time to write?
Elle: I write best in the morning before my husband wakes up. After making coffee, I settle in at my desk and start writing. On a good day, the coffee goes cold because I’m too busy writing to drink it!
Why do you like writing romantic suspense?
Elle: Romantic suspense is my favorite genre to read, so when I started writing, it naturally fit neatly into the romantic suspense category. I have written children’s books, one contemporary women’s fiction novella and a romantic comedy novella, but my true love is definitely romantic suspense. I enjoy a romantic storyline, but the suspense keeps me turning the pages in a way that a pure romance doesn’t. Sure, there is suspense in other fiction, but it’s not the heart pounding, gut-twisting kind. I write what I would want to read.
Have you ever regretted killing off a character? Why?
Elle: Yes. A character dies in Claudia and I almost wish I could bring that character back, for the simple reason that I liked her. She was like an old friend, and we had much in common.
Current book: Claudia
