AUTHOR

Elisa Lorello

Elisa Lorello wasn't always a novelist, but she's been a writer and teacher all her life. A self-proclaimed "manifester of ideas," she writes novels about relationships a la Nora Ephron, but with Aaron Sorkin-like dialogue. She also teaches the craft of storytelling, writing process, and rhetoric, and she approaches each subject with enthusiasm and humor.

A Long Island native, Elisa is the youngest of seven children. She earned her bachelor's and master's degrees at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and taught rhetoric and writing at the college level for more than ten years. In 2012 she became a full-time novelist.

Elisa is the author of eight novels, including the bestselling Faking It, and one memoir. She has been featured in the Charlotte Observer and, more recently, Last Best News, and was a guest speaker at the Triangle Association of Freelancers 2012 and 2014 Write Now! conferences. In May 2016 she presented a lesson for the Women's Fiction Writers Association spring workshop. She continues to speak and write about her publishing experience and teach the craft of writing and revision.

Elisa enjoys reading, walking, hanging out in coffee shops, Nutella, and all things Duran Duran. She plays guitar badly and occasionally bakes. She moved to Montana in 2016 and is newly married.
