About

Elissa 2015 headshot 1

I’m a mother of three, a writer of stories, and a believer in the strongest coffee possible. Though I now live with my family on the South Dakota prairie, I was born and raised in the forests of Northern Minnesota.

As an author, I write stories about friendship, family, love, adventure, and finding light in the darkness. I’m thrilled to be working with Sharon Pelletier of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret on my debut novel, THOSE WE LEFT BEHIND.

I’m a 2016 Pitch Wars mentee and co-creator of a local writing group, Aberdeen Write Now. The writing community is an amazingly supportive place, and I’m honored and excited to share this journey.
