Elisa grew up near Salem, Massachusetts. A longtime lover of all things paranormal, she began her writing career with horror stories--but didn't dream of publication until years later, when she branched out into romance novels.
She wrote her first romance in the summer of 2001. Her first sale came in 2002 to Ellora's Cave. Since then she's written over a dozen books for Ellora's Cave, including the Dark Promises vampire series. In the summer of 2005 another dream of Elisa's was realized when she sold an erotic horror novella to Changeling Press.
Her favorite books to write, and read, are dark paranormals, ghost and vampire tales, which she intersperses with the occasional romantic comedy to keep things interesting. When she isn't writing, she can be found curled up on the couch with a book in her hands.
