Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author


Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. 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) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.


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.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, # 1)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, # 1) - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré I came to Harry Potter late on. I saw the films before I had read the books and because I enjoyed them so much, I waited until I had seen all the films before attempting the books.

That being said, I loved the books even more than the films. There are things in the films that aren't in the books, for obvious reasons and things in the books that aren't in the films. I find that this offsets the whole chaos of having to only like one or the other. They both have a lot to offer.

For the first book, I loved the excitement, the newness of it all and how well it's explained to what could be a new reader. I love Hagrid and Ron, and Neville. And I really love the interaction between Harry and Draco.

Definitely one of my favourite series.
