Elysa Hendricks resides in Northern Illinois, but her imagination allows her to visit 1870's Texas, alternate universes, and other planets. A voracious reader, she began writing in the early 90's. She help found both the Windy City and the Futuristic, Fantasy, and Paranormal chapters of RWA.
Owned by two cats, one dog, one hamster, two sons, a mortgage and two car payments, she dreams of escaping to a tropical island with her hero husband. For the time being, she keeps warm by writing hot, sensual love scenes.
