About Elaine Young

Who am I? My name is Elaine Young I am sixty-eight years old. I have always been ‘in books’ both reading them, and selling them. I worked in bookshops for 18 years; I have run a school library and am passionate about teaching children the joy of the written word.
Over the years I have jotted down stories and ideas, and I once (unsuccessfully) submitted a short story to a magazine. I had small children at the time and it was very difficult to find the time to write. Now my children are adults and I have more time on my hands. I am now a home executive and an aspiring author.I also began blogging a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoy it. My hobbies include sewing, photography, miniature doll's houses and cooking. But writing has taken precedence over these ( except maybe the cooking!)
It has taken 8 years to finish this book, I almost gave up several times, but I persevered and I have finished Every Hidden Thing at last. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed the journey of writing it.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! Once I started I did not stop until it was finished. Fast moving and keeps you interested all the time. Highly recommended reading, sorry it was not longer. Can't wait for the next one.

Review by: Rebekka Wellmanns on Dec. 02, 2013 : (no rating)
I’ve recently finished reading Every Hidden Thing and I couldn’t put it down – I needed to know how the puzzle would fit together! There were so many twists which I didn’t expect and I would often read late just so I could read one chapter more!

I really hope that Elaine will write another book soon as this first one had everything a good book should have!

I enjoyed this book so much, I want to read it again! It was a bit slow to get into the story, but soon, I could not put it down!
It shows how important human relationhips are, even with the wrong people. The interaction is what moves the story line forward, and it is the same for our lives! Much to reflect upon! I agree, it would make a good movie!

I don't normally enjoy thrillers but really enjoyed Every Hidden Thing. It felt very real and not contrived. I thought I would enjoy the book because of the Paris setting and I was not disappointed. There are enough twists and turns to keep one guessing right to the end.I think it would make a really good movie.

From mysterious parcels to thrilling chases throughout the European countryside, Every Hidden Thing has something to offer for readers of every kind. This thrilling novel keeps the pace fast and the action faster as twist after twist is unraveled in rich and beautifully descriptive scenery complete with intriguing and mysteriously intertwined characters. Young keeps readers on the edge of their seats with every theme ranging from romance to deception and beyond. I highly recommend Every Hidden Thing to anyone looking for a captivating story filled with dark secrets and wild adventure.
