Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what do you listen to?
Yes. I like to listen to New Age, folk music. Enya is one of my favorites to write to.

Do you have any suggestions for upcoming writers?
Believe in your writing, take criticism well but stick to your instinct. If a critic gives you advice on structure, flow etc. then by all means listen and adjust where necessary. However I would advise that you never lose sight of your story, only use feedback to enhance it. Not everyone will share your point of view or your passion. We are all different with different tastes – remember that and keep writing!

What is it you like to do when you are not reading/writing?
My life is pretty busy. I’m a commercial manager, full time mom and wife. If I’m not writing, generally I’m taking care of my life and family.

Is there an author/authors that have inspired you?            
I absolutely loved the novel Under The Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes – it’s one of my favorites. I believe that this was the chief inspiration for the setting for this novel.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A writer!

How do you/would you react to a bad review of your book?

I’d take my own advice!

Elle Emtage is a business professional and has been published in several media houses. Elle’s passion for writing has transformed throughout the years and she is sharing her love of romance and intrigue through the début of this novel. Elle and her family consider themselves fortunate to live on the beautiful island of Barbados.
