Elle Anor


Elsie Meyer is an Afrikaans speaking writer from Pretoria, South Africa. Writing many Afrikaans novellas, she has decided to try her hand at writing English.
Using the pen name Elle Anor, she has written her first novel, Darkness of Her Soul, followed by a novella Rain McKenzie M.D.
We hope that her first Afrikaans novel, Geheime in die Amazone Reënwoud, will see the light in 2014.
As a participant and first time winner of NaNoWriMo, she penned her second novel Ylva the She Wolf.
Thereafter a short story Konitah followed and its prequel the novella ForbiddeN.
Elsie and her partner, of more than ten years, share their home with lots of furry and feathery children.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I needed something for NaNoWriMo 2013 and I had nothing except a piece of paper, about two folios with names of characters and an idea of an Afrikaans short story that I wanted to write in 2012 and never had the time for doing it.
I've entered the NaNoWriMo writing and I finished the 50K in three weeks. I'm going to do it again this year. I better start thinking of an idea for a story.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I live in South Africa and the people are still a bit homophobic (my opinion only), because the editors and publishers don't care for gay novels.
There are hardly any books about lesbian characters. If you check on amazon kindle, there are about 7K lesbian books/stories. I think I won't even find a lesbian fiction on any of the bookstore shelves where I live.
That's why I became an indie author, to put the lesbian fiction out there on the online shelf. And it's not exclusively for lesbians, anyone can read it.
