"Silly, thoughtful, sympathetic, naughty, delusional, moody, loving, begrudging... that's me in a nutshell."
In addition to being a writer, Ella is a mom, a wife, a respiratory therapist, and a lover of ukuleles and unicorns. She was born and raised in a sexually conservative, strict Christian household in the Bible Belt of the USA. This upbringing and repression contributed to her wicked imagination, and writing has become a pleasurable and satisfying outlet for her fantasies. At the mature age of forty, she mustered up the courage to share her thoughts and put pen to paper. She sincerely hopes to find her niche in writing romance in all forms, be it dark romance, romantic comedy, psychological thrillers and paranormal.
She doesn't consider herself an author, rather, an avid reader above all else and someone who simply writes the stories that the characters in her head tell her to.

(★★★½) HARD CANDY FOR CHRISTMAS was the perfect short story for the holidays, and I thank Ms. Dominguez for making it a free download. Please try this if you're looking for a cheeky, sweet and smexy paranormal story with a little Christmas magick.
Lia, Nick and Dale are very likable characters (although I couldn't help but think of certain chipmunks once or twice). Although the mutual attraction was immediate upon their first meeting at a club, their relationship develops enough over the weeks before Christmas to sustain the ending. I liked that Lia was so straightforward and confident enough to state what she wanted. Initially portrayed as a bit flighty and self-centered, Lia undergoes personal growth as she starts to worry more about how her delicious "hard candy" (*lol*) were dealing with dating the same woman than the looming deadline to end her curse.
HARD CANDY FOR CHRISTMAS is my third story by Ms. Dominguez so I can now see certain consistencies in grammatical and composition errors. However, they were relatively minor here and didn't detract from my enjoyment of this creative story. I got a real kick out of the play on words and the slight role reversal at one point. ^_^
