Elle Wright is an award-winning author of edgy contemporary romance loaded with heat, humor, and scandal. Her novels feature strong, intelligent, courageous, beautiful, yet flawed, heroes and heroines of color.

There was never a time when Elle wasn’t about to start a book, wasn’t already deep in a book—or had just finished one. She grew up believing in the power of reading to transform, to heal, and to enhance life and love. She became a lover of all things romance after her mother convinced her take a chance and read something new. Writing stories of unconditional love through adversity has become as necessary to her as reading. When she’s not writing complex characters and using every day experiences to craft her next story, she’s spending quality time with her family and friends, watching old Rom Coms, or trying to solve crimes on her favorite Investigative Discovery Channel shows.

A proud Michigander and University of Michigan alum (GO BLUE!), Elle lives her own friends-to-lovers romance with her real-life hero of many years. She is also mom to three young adults who inspire her to be better.
