Meet Elena Paige
I love hanging out with my kids! They are so adventurous and fun and see the world from a whole different perspective than grown ups. I have two children who are 12 and 10 years old and we have lots of fun together. I love encouraging them to be the best they can be and most importantly to have fun learning and creating. They are the ones that inspire me to write for this age group. So as they grow I'm sure I will write more middle grade and eventually young adult books. We talk about all the books I have planned and they nag me to hurry up and write them!
When I was a kid myself, what I spent most of my time doing was READING! I read lots of magical type books mostly. Even as an adult I tend to read mostly kids books! One day I realized that maybe I could write a story of my own. I think being a writer and storyteller is one of those things where I may never be perfect, but its the love of doing it that inspires and encourages me to keep going. Plus I love the messages I get from kids who love to read my books and listen to my meditations. It makes it all worthwhile.
I originally worked in the health and healing area and in the field of counseling psychology, which is why I created Lolli initially to help kids overcome their difficulties and help them think more positively. However, as I've gone on the fiction writing journey I have discovered my own inner child, so I'm looking forward to also being simply entertaining with my writing! Of course, every story still has an underlying message, but the joy of spinning a good tale is now what inspires me most.
