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 primarily resides in Roanoke with her husband and a 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 son and daughter have fled the nest, Elena looks forward to being able to spend more time in Brooklyn, and on her passion…writing. An avid blogger and photographer, you can follow her adventures at MsElenaeousRants.blogspot.com.
“Fractured Façade,” a novel written as memoir, was her debut book. “The Valentine’s Day Curse,” a short story, is her most recent publication.
