With one foot planted in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia and the other in the streets of Brooklyn, New York, Elena DeRosa enjoys the best of both worlds. Born and raised in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, Elena now resides in Roanoke with her husband, two children, and quirky Malti-Zhu.
A former videotape editor, producer, and freelance newspaper columnist, Elena’s most rewarding career has been the years spent raising her children. Now that her children have graduated college and entered "the real world," Elena looks forward to being able to spend more time on her passion…writing. Blogging, photography, and paranormal investigating are her hobbies.
“Fractured Façade,” a novel written as memoir, is her debut book. "The Valentine's Day Curse" -- A short story, is her most recent.
