The behind the scenes story of Yellow Rock

Yay!  We made it!   Yellow Rock is live.  But I bet you didn't know there's another story, the story behind the story.

 My dad was a prospector.  Oh, he was many things, he owned  sign company, his father was the famous magician, The Great Fontaine, so he was a magician as well.  He was a helluva guitarist.  But the thing that seemed the most unique was he was a gold miner. 
  Guess who had to hike all over the desert with her dad, helping to carry all that equipment?  In Yellow Rock, Dutch has 'Fatty' the mule.  My dad had me.  Sigh.  And we lived in Yuma, Az.  It was HOT.  LOL.

 I have many, many fond memories of digging for gold with dad.  Once I sat on a boulder full of scorpions.  (should have put that in the book)  and another time, I found his biggest nugget.  I was eight, and on a rock, just so we wouldn't lose the spot, I wrote; Kelly's MIND.  I had typo's even at eight years old. 

Anyway, I really enjoyed writing about Dutch, and reliving my childhood days hiking up the rocks, getting dusty and dirty, and...well, I wish I could find that rock.  It is somewhere near the AZ/California border. 

I hope you all enjoy Yellow Rock and read how Willow tries to find her own 'MIND'  ~Elle

It's Cover Reveal Time!

Oh how I love Willow and Dutch.  Their love story will grab you and never let go.
Look for this title August 19th on Amazon!

After her plantation burns to the ground by the hands of her Confederate father, Willow is then forced to escape Georgia aboard a wagon train heading west. When the Apaches attack the wagons, capturing and brutalizing her, Willow’s mind tries to cope by escaping reality.

 As her mind slips her from the present back into the past, confusing the Indians for Yankees. Willow no longer knows her enemies as the Apaches tie her to a tree as a gift for a man they call Yellow Rock.  

Dutch knows a trap when he sees one. The crazy woman whistling Dixie up on that cliff means only one thing; the Apaches want him to take her instead of the gold from their sacred mountain.  And even though Dutch has plans for that gold, and secrets that the beautiful woman might not accept, his heart and the Apaches threaten to ruin all of it.

They call her crazy.  But he knows the truth and he’s going to do something about it.



Hear Ye! Everyone gather around!

Waves enthusiastically hello!  I can't keep the smile off my face and I wanted to update all of you on this weekend.  So, Saturday, ...
