Elissa Kane is an independent author who is currently writing her first YA fantasy novel, Legacy of Time, and has a projected completion date of summer 2018. She is also a published poet and has written for several craft publications, including Interweave.
Elissa grew up in sunny South Florida. While everyone else spent their days at the beach, she spent her days indoors listening to music and watching MTV. An avid music lover, Elissa is never far from her iPod, Walkman, and record player. She has an eclectic taste in music, which ranges from Otis Redding to Anthrax. Some of her favorite musicians are Duran Duran, The Go-Go’s, Concrete Blonde, Miranda Lambert, and Fleetwood Mac. A Netflix fanatic, Elissa queues mostly ’80s movies, like Sixteen Candles, Clue, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and The Breakfast Club.
Never without a cup of tea close by, Elissa writes what she likes to read. Her favorite quote is by Toni Morrison, “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Elissa has been working in publishing for fifteen years and has a solid understanding of the process of book publishing. She has attended various trade shows, including the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) where she worked as an author consultant during book signings.
When she is not writing, Elissa can be found crafting. She is an avid crocheter, hand stitcher, and cross stitcher. She is also a music lover and ’80s fanatic.
