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.

Kiss of the Spider Woman - Manuel Puig I still remember when I first heard about this book. I was in my last year of high school and a friend was reading it as part of an essay for English class. I remember hearing her rave about how great it was and she let me read the back cover while we sat in a free period. She let me borrow it once her essay was done and I enjoyed it so much that I later bought my own copy.

I've always remembered this book as being one of the greats. One of my favourites. Not what you would expect, I suppose, from a teenage girl, considering the topics covered in the story. But there is something about this story that speaks to me. It speaks of love, friendship, life and the trials and tribulations of a regular Joe in the real world.

This will always be one of my favourites and I will always continue to read it on a regular basis.
