Elle Beauregard

Biography

Elle began writing Contemporary Fantasy in a desperate attempt to escape short, dark and wet Seattle days. Left-handed and hopelessly right-brained, Elle continues to survive the Pacific Northwest winters by communing with the characters in her head. She prefers her leading ladies sharp, her heroes flawed and her values tested by conflict.

When she’s not writing, Elle is usually reading, shopping, drawing, sewing or watching Fringe on her DVR. She’s a cold little thing, so she can often be found wearing a sweater, even in the summer. Her weaknesses include Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Soy Lattes, Steampunk jewelry, and handbags. She’s been known to discuss a character or two as though they were a real person; her friends and family are lovingly tolerant of her ‘quirkiness.’

Smashwords book reviews by Elle Beauregard

  • Sleeping Kings (Dark Force – Book One) on May 13, 2011
    star star star
    When displaced Nicola literally stumbles upon a regent from the 1200's in the mountains around the tiny French town where she lives, she unknowingly embarks upon an adventure of epic proportion and dire consequence. This story was fast-paced and snappy with plenty of action and turns to keep the reader guessing. The history introduced and explained within the story adds to the plot and characters without feeling laborious. The main character's voice is recognizable and witty--she has a certain sarcastic humor that is very in keeping with her age and the audience. In many ways, the flow and feeling of this story reminds me of the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. Fans of Maximum Ride will enjoy the swiftness of this story arc. My only complaint, in fact, was that the fast pace left little time for deep character development. However, I have a feeling that, like in the Maximum Ride books, more character development is to come through subsequent installments in the Dark Force Series.

    Char finds herself throw into a catastrophe and plot of epic proportions. I loved the world building in this novella--some of the best I've read. It was jarring in all the right ways, and somehow, seamless at the same time. Char's voice is easy to read, recognizable and relatable. Within the first 20 pages, she'd clicked for me. **slight spoiler** I found the physicality and swiftness with which Char and Jake's relationship developed to be in keeping with the time/world of the story--a byproduct of sex no longer being connected to procreation. Toward the end of the story, a couple of scenes moved a little too quickly. I found myself having to go back and reread a sentence or two to be sure I hadn't missed anything because the scenes flew by with such speed. For example, I'd have loved to be in Char's head a little longer with Mike and the air lock (trying to avoid spoilers, here) and in the final scenes with the Empanii aboard the Space Junque. All in all, I really enjoyed this novella and am anxious to move onto the next!
