I was a little nervous when we released The Color of Thunder because it’s so different from the mystery/suspense novels that I normally write.  I wasn’t sure how it would be received by my readers.

Turns out I was nervous for nothing.  I have had nothing but positive feedback on my newest release.  I’m honored and humbled by some of the responses.

I started it several years ago but never finished it.  I got so engrossed in my mystery/suspense series that I forgot all about The Color of Thunder.

When I ran across it one day, and read what I had written years before, I knew I had to finish it.  I pulled the manuscript up on desktop and can you believe it, it practically wrote itself.  My fingers were tripping all over themselves trying to type faster as the ideas kept coming.  I held my breath as I submitted it to Eric Jones, my publisher, not knowing what to expect.

When he called me and said “Yes, yes, yes, it’s a go.”  I nearly cried with relief.  The paperback copy is available at Amazon.  The e-book was released a little later but is now available.  Eric put some finishing touches on it that are pretty amazing.  I can’t wait for your feedback on the e-book!!!



“I discovered your books through my dad, and fell in love with Josh in the Dreams Are Forever series. You’ve become my favorite author and I’ll never forget actually getting to meet you when you came to Arkansas to promote your books. I haven’t read The Color of Thunder yet, but I can’t wait to dig in. Love you Elsie!” -JAIA

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
