Interview with Elle Klass

When did you first start writing?
I started writing as a teenager, mostly poetry. Most of my poetry was very dark. Sometime in my early adulthood I stopped writing poetry, went to college and started writing term papers. It wasn't until about eight years ago that I wrote the rough draft for my first story. Since I have wrote many rough drafts to many stories. As Snow Falls was my first story and it went through several revisions thanks to my family and friends and professional editing services. It remains my favorite story. Although I have many more stories and characters to publish.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is the snow. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay area we didn't have snow. As an adult I moved to the snow and loved watching it fall. I spent hours sometimes simply watching, amazed how the flakes would catch the light. I loved to drive in the mountains and was always in awe over the breathtaking sights. This prompted my thought process and a story began to emerge. Once I started writing it took on a life of its own.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy in writing is writing, creating each character and events they encounter. I can have them think and do anything I want. Sitting down at my computer and creating is a break from reality. I can spend hours, sometimes even days on end emerged into a new story or rewriting a rough draft. I also enjoy it when people read my stories and come to me after with "I loved it", "couldn't put it down" or the "I cried". I love when my stories provoke an emotion in people.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me without fans I wouldn't be much of an author. I love reading as well and when I read a book I always post a review and post the book on my social networking chains. I give other authors what I want as an author. I believe strongly to get you have to give. Fans are the best!
What are you working on next?
My next story is already in its second draft. It is about a young girl abandoned at twelve who has to use her wits to survive. She meets some interesting people along the way and encounters some interesting situations while attempting to find out what happened to her parents. She makes some long lasting relationships that will take her into a sequel and maybe a trilogy. I have been posting my rewrites to this story on my Tumblr blog so check it out.
