About the Author
J. Elle is the New York Times, and indie, bestselling and award-winning author of multiple books including Against The Tide, an original prequel tie-in to The Little Mermaid live action film. Her debut duology, Wings of Ebony, dubbed “an incredible debut” by NPR and best fantasy book by POPSUGAR, was a 2022 NAACP Image Award Nominee for Outstanding Literary Work for Youth and Teens, an Amazon Editor’s pick for Best Science Fiction and Fantasy, and a Barnes and Noble YA Book Club Pick. The former educator credits her nomadic lifestyle and humble inner-city beginnings as inspiration for her novels. When she’s not writing, Elle can be found on the hunt for desserts without chocolate, drowning herself in regency romance reads and shows, and looking for any excuse to wear a tiara.
