Elaine Dodge

I was born in Zambia, grew up in Zimbabwe and am currently living in South Africa. I say currently because I did my first round-the-world trip when I was four years old. So who knows where I'll end up! I trained as a designer and worked in that field for a number of years, even running my own company. A long stint in advertising followed. In the last few years I've been toiling away in the TV industry, winning an odd international award. Writing was an aspect of each part of my career. But I realised this wasn't enough. I love "telling stories". I'm passionate about it, so in November 2011 I decided to "wrestle the Rottweiler" and put those stories on paper. I feel most alive when I'm writing and delight in letting my imagination run riot.

My first book, Harcourt's Mountain, signed by Tirgearr Publishing, was launched 15 August 2013. The reviews have been marvellous! Mostly five stars. It's so exciting! I have been featured as a guest blogger on other authors' sites, have done a radio interview about the book. AND Harcourt's Mountain was nominated for the 2014 RONE Awards!

Right now, I'm in the throes of editing my second novel, The Device Hunter, which is an altogether different animal to Harcourt's Mountain, both in genre and temperament! I am also plotting out and have begun my third novel The Raging of Christopher Sly, which is completely different to either of the other two. Because so many readers have asked for it I've also begun the plotting for a sequel to Harcourt's Mountain.
