Huffington Post columnist and the author of Broken Pieces and Broken Place Rachel Thompson and writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz host media guests and persons of interest on LetsTalk

 

Yonight's guest is Elissa Daye, the author of  Crushed. It's book 1 in the Press Legacy Series.

Ever since childhood, I have enjoyed reading stories as an escape from life. When I was a teenager I started to write my own stories that kept me entertained whenever I ran out of books to read. When I was accepted into Illinois Summer School for the Arts in my Junior year of High School, I knew I wanted to become a writer. I graduated from Illinois State University in December 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and began my teaching career, hoping to find moments to write in my free time. 

After seven years of teaching, I decided to focus on my writing and made the decision to put my teaching years behind me so that I could create the stories I had always dreamed of. I am now happily married and a stay at home mom. I try my best to master the art of multitasking to get everything accomplished and write in any spare moment I can find.
