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.

The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red - Joyce Reardon, Steven Rimbauer, Ridley Pearson I loved Rose Red the movie and unfortunately, hated The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer the movie. I had hoped the book would be better. It wasn't.

The whole point of The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer was Ellen being obsessed with John, even when everyone told her he was bad for her. She didn't care. So she married him. Big mistake.

The rest of the story, as far as I bothered reading it, was Ellen complaining about John, his philandering and what he put her through. A terrible prequel to Rose Red, which is a fantastic story. So I suggest, if you watched or read Rose Red and loved it and thought you'd continue the story with The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer for background reading...don't!
