January 2021


Elle has written in several genres but is currently working on a cozy mystery series with an alchemical twist. As a historian and museum educator, she firmly believes in the value of stories -- and fantasy in particular -- as a mirror for complicated realities. Though she grew up on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in New Jersey with a grumpy tortoise, a three-legged cat, and a very supportive partner. Find her blog and other stories at ellehartford.com.

That's a hard decision--I'd say it's a tie between getting to "hang out" with my characters, and being able to realize one of my childhood dreams. (My other big dream was being able to talk to & understand animals, so I'll take my successes where I can get them! ;) )(less)

Symbols of Love: Pomegranate

It’s February! And not only do we have Valentine’s Day coming up, there’s also the release of my romance novella next week. So bear with me for some love-themed fun facts . . .
