Have you read any Leanna Ellis books? If not, you are missing out. Leanna is not only a wonderful lady, she has the most unique, entertaining writing style. She takes the most off the wall subject matter and weaves an entrancing story with wonderful characters. I absolutely loved "Ruby's Slippers" and now she has raised the bar again with "Once in a Blue Moon". Think for a moment about aliens, conspiracy theories, astronauts murder, fantasy vs. reality and men in black. Roll that all into a story with Bryn, who was 9 when her mother died, as she harbors a horrible secret about her mother's death. She runs into a man who knew her mother and has the chance to spend some time with him and learn about the mother she lost at such a young age. In the process she begins to think he's crazy, or maybe not... His son adds a whole different dimension to her trip and she must try to keep her reality straight as she searches for truth, about her mother, herself and what she really wants. Absolutely intriguing.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
For about three years, she wrote with a collaborator, but because she had so many ideas she began to write more stories on her own. She suffered numerous rejections. Deservedly so. But she was growing as a writer and learning. She went to as many conferences as she could manage. During that time, she met her future husband, fell in love and became engaged. She also began to final in contests and then actually began to win! The contests helped her get noticed by editors and agents. In March, the year Braveheart won the Best Picture Oscar, Victor/Victoria opened on Broadway, she sold her first book. It was her Cinderella year. She sold her book, got married and won RWA’s Golden Heart Award in Hawaii.
She wrote six books between her first baby’s birth and when the second baby turned one. Then she hit a wall. Not literally. But creatively. It’s not that she didn’t have any ideas, but her ideas didn’t fit the romance market. These new characters, random and weird as they were, began to take over the part of her brain that wasn’t domesticated. These stories were about all types of women, and so she began to let her writing grow in new and different ways.
Leanna Ellis sold more than 1.3 million romantic novels writing as Leanna Wilson, winning a Readers’ Choice award and the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award for her work. Elvis Takes a Back Seat is the first book published under her married name, marking a new creative direction in her writing. Like Francine Rivers before her, Leanna has left behind a successful career as an author of secular romances to write novels of faith that glorify God. A former schoolteacher, Leanna is now a homeschool mom and lives with her husband and children in Keller, Texas.
