Elena talks about the challenges of writing in two historical periods, how her WFWA critique group helps her by being tough, and how she uses writing instead of television for stress relief.
Elena was born in Ukraine and came to New York City as a refugee with her family at age 17. She is somewhat obsessive about travel, but, when at home in San Antonio, can be found browsing through bookstores or antique shops with her family and two adopted pups. When not writing stories, primarily about women who have a chance to change their lives, she is a Pediatric Psychologist, working at a Children's Hospital, helping children cope with chronic medical illness. She actively blogs on issues of mental health for teens and adults and also provides consultation to authors writing about those issues.
