An exciting new feature will soon be available just for my readers!

Get ready for the Romance Travel Vlog!
All year at random times (mostly due to budget and time,) I will be uploading quick one-minute or less video clips of myself at various locations through-out the state of Arizona.  I love my state and I want to show you first-hand places that I have wrote about, or will soon write about.  Come with me as I discuss my research, explore the unknown, and share some historical information with all of you.
Elle Marlow on Location will be up and running soon.  See you soon on that open road!
