About the author

Dear Readers,

As someone who will likely never live long enough to get through all the books on her “to-read” list, I thank you for taking the time to pick up this book, especially if you’re taking a chance and this is the first of my works you’ve read. Followers of my blog know that it’s filled with introspection, honesty, and self-deprecating humor, and I’ll be the first one to say when something I’ve written is mediocre.

This story is not. All my projects have their own special place in my heart for different reasons, but like anyone who practices a craft, I’m always looking to improve. I can sincerely say that Elysium is the best book I’ve written in my career as an author, and I’m beyond excited to be able to take this journey with you.

I set out to write a beautiful, sensual, poignant love story, and I hope I hit all the right chords. I also hope you grow to love the characters as much as I do and that their tale is a memorable one. So here’s to life and death, love and loss, and the infinite possibilities of the world of Elysium.

~ Thea
