Elissa has been spinning tales about the way she sees the world ever since she learnt to talk. Her life long study in the power of storytelling began early with impromptu performances in primary school whenever it was story-time. As her skills and maturity grew she decided it was time to put the multitude of narratives in her head, down on paper.
A keen observer of the world, Elissa is particularly drawn to the complexities of relationships and the power of decisions; the way they shape our lives and the ripple effect they have on others. These are the underlying themes in her written work, where she encourages the reader to mull over the ideas presented and reflect on their own lives. She also hopes her readers share her belief; that love in all its various forms, has the power to triumph every time.
Elissa has completed her first novel, a story about the pursuit of love and how the impact of love changes the paths we walk on. She is currently in the process of pitching it for publication. Meanwhile Elissa has begun work on her second novel, a story about the challenges faced when two families from different backgrounds are forced to come together.
When she is not writing, Elissa works as a Creative Arts Business Coach, helping other artists to reach their full artistic potential and expand their work to turn it into their full time passion. You can find out more about her coaching HERE.
