tanya declerq.jpg

Tanya always loved how a story could take her away from whatever was going on around her. How the worlds came to life in her imagination, making her feel like everything was possible. Even though what she enjoyed reading were the works of Koontz, Poe, and poetry.

She published a couple of her own poems as a teenager but then permitted life to lead her astray. Finding her way back to the worlds she loves, she finally promised herself she would share her own. Her first fantasy novel was printed in May of 2023 just 12 days before she turned 46.

The series she is working on is based off characters she wrote for years. Her hope is that they give even one person the smile reading gives her and more importantly, that her two sons see that dreams can come true.

Currently residing in Michigan with her youngest son and their cat, you can keep up with her events, social media links, and releases on her website:

She absolutely does not enjoy long walks on the beach because the thought of setting foot near water that can’t be seen through is the most terrifying thing in the world. But coffee that’s more sugar than anything else, a room filled with books, and residing over the chaos of the cornfields like a demon queen are a few of her favorite things.

Her books aim for emotional upheaval. They all end with their own version of a happily-ever-after, but the journey to get to that point tends to involve broken people with disturbing pasts making poor choices in the heat of the moment because, more often than not, life is a hilariously messy disaster. If her characters haven’t been dragged through the pits of hell on their way to happiness, they really haven’t earned it. She also has a dog. His name is Murphy and he’s kind of a jerk.

Bio

Hello my name is Cassie. I’m a dreamer whose propensity for reading pushed me into creating my own characters and fantastic worlds. When I’m not creating depraved stories or conversing with my fictional characters, you can find me and my many alter egos out in the wild, scheming up the next big adventure. If there is time to spare, I  love to play video games, bake gourmet gluten free cheesecakes, and binge read books written by my favorite indie authors and friends.

Elle Mitchell is an avid reader, daydreamer, devourer of knowledge, and author of new adult contemporary romance. Her books are both plot and spice and center around flawed, relatable characters dealing with real-life issues and struggles, which may be triggering to some readers. They’re messy—like real life—and emotional. She can’t promise that all her books will depict what a healthy relationship should look like at every turn. She rejects purity themes. The best she can do is promise an eventual HEA when it’s all said and done.

When she isn’t existing inside her own head and conversing with figments of her imagination, she enjoys spending time with her husband and children, traveling, hiking, and finding joy in the ordinary.

Daisy’s greatest passion in life is romance novels. So, one day, while reading a particularly spicy book, an idea hit her head. She wanted to write. So, there she was, writing her very first romance novel while rocking her seven-months-old baby to sleep in a closet during her grandparents fiftieth wedding anniversary. The need to put those words on the screen was too strong. Daisy loves to create special characters with deeper stories and breathe the life into them. To write about love that changes lives. And maybe believe that kind of magic really does exist.
