About Me
Hi, I'm Elena (Eh-lane-uh) and I've been writing as a hobby since I was in 3rd grade. I am a speech therapist, which is the best job in the world. But my fire comes from creativity and writin. I've been working on since I was 15 years old! I will read anything as long as it's interesting-my favorite authors range from Tolstoy to Roald Dahl. Guess you could say I have eclectic interests. Looking forward to getting to know everyone! Elena
