Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author

 

Elaine White is the author of multi-genre MM romance, celebrating 'love is love' and offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. She lives vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, exploring all possibilities within the romantic universe.

The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) Elaine is a self-professed geek, reading addict, and a romantic at heart.

 

The Reviewer

 

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Facts About Me: An Author's Schedule

As an author, I'm a bit of a night owl. My optimum time for writing is generally between 12am-2am. Mostly, this is because I still live at home, so either one of my parents is in until 2pm, then I have until 4pm before the other one comes in, or I have all day until 4pm to myself before they both come home. Any time after that, I generally don't have the time or quiet I need to write. So, it waits until I go to bed at 11pm. I usually spend the first 30mins-1hr unpacking my laptop etc and fiddling about with last minute fixes/checking msgs etc, but by 12am I'm ready to get back to work. And depending on how into the story I am, I can work until 2-3am, losing track of time, though I generally tell myself to stop at 1.30am, so that I still have time to pack my stuff up for the next day, before I actually go to sleep. True, staying up so late means that I sleep until 10am the next day, but it works for me, and it's the best way to get the most out of my creativity.
