About this author

(See also E.B. Loan)

"Confessions of a PTA Mafia Mom" is her third novel. Her fourth book, "Sixty Pounds of Sh*t & Counting", is a work in progress and should be ready by next spring.
In her spare time, Elsie lunches with the ladies, vacuums, and dreams of running away to paradise to live as a woman of luxury and extravagant means.

I Admit, I've been a bad, bad girl. I have read many books since the last time I posted a review; and not a one has made it on this blog, to my Amazon review page, or any other sort of media. I'm not proud of my lack of structure; in fact, I've been...more

I've read some criticism of the author's 'telling' vs. 'showing'. I typically do not rate books so much on such stylistic issues because I believe most readers don't identify that as a problem in books. That seems to me to be more of an author as rev...more

Yep, you read that right. This book not only gets an A, it gets a plus added on. When I started this book, I wasn't sure what to make of it. It had quite a bit of army lingo; it is based on Joe's time in 'Nam (never a topic I would have pick...more

“Every day I'm eternally grateful that when everyone else went right, I made a wide, unprotected left.”
Elsie Love

“Cottage cheese, broken down into its simplest form, is milk that has been curdled to mimic the cellulite its consumption is meant to banish.”
Elsie Love

“‎"All that history, the love & laughter, is designed for youth. It is what keeps the story of who we are alive from one generation to the next. It ensures our indelible mark in the souls of generations we will never have the pleasure of holding in a warm embrace. Life is short people. Before you know it, another decade will pass, people you love will be lost to this world, and all that will be left of them is what we carry in our hearts." Elsie Love 2011”
