About this author

Elle Lapraim is a Sci-fi and Fantasy author who lives in Portland, Oregon. She currently has several short stories available on the kindle and nook. Her first full-length Science fiction novel will be published during the middle of 2012.

It wasn’t till she was in her late twenties that she finally gave in to her passion and began publishing the stories that had been with her for years.

When she is not writing she spends her time on her Facebook and Blog, helping to inspire other young authors. You can contact her through her blog at ElleLapraim.com or jo...more


[image error]I came up with the all-American, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of our generation. It hit me like a slap across the face, one night when I was laying in bed.

I loved this book! I highlighted most of it. It is definitely a must read for all women. Even if you were not a promiscuous girl growing up, you definitely had these feelings, and some of us still do.
Beautiful.

Hope you won't mind my asking you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my personal life. Namaste, jesse
