Elysa Hendricks is 5'6" tall. She has curly hair and brown eyes. She's an author, a wife, a mother and a daughter. Everything else is subject to change without notice.
After trying her hand at a variety of careers, insurance underwriter, video storeowner, home day care, and domestic goddess for other people, Elysa Hendricks, a longtime reader sat down to write a short contemporary novel. When her heroine turned out to be a winged, telepathic alien, Elysa decided she enjoyed writing stories set in different places, times, and realities. She's published 14 full-length books, ranging from sweet contemporary to sexy sci-fi, as well as numerous short stories.
While living in north east Illinois she helped found the Windy City Chapter and the Futuristic, Fantasy & Paranormal Chapters of Romance Writers of America, and taught workshops on writing at writer’s conferences and at community colleges. Recently relocated to sunny Florida she’s happy to be part of the TARAN family.
Her "real life" motto is: Boring is good. Excitement is vastly overrated, so she saves the adventure and excitement for the characters in her books.

Amy Starr is in a disabled ship after being hit by an asteroid. She knows she will die soon but suddenly she is communicating with someone but who is it and where are they?
THE BEAST WITHIN by Elysa Hendricks is a good short story. Amy is in a difficult situation. She is desperate to live but knows her death in imminent. When she has the opportunity to live she has to make a quick decision. Which is better—knowing what will happen or choosing the unknown? I liked Amy and her dilemma. I wondered what she could choose. I do not know which I would choose but it made me think about my choices.
