Today we welcome New York Times and USA Today best selling author Elle James! Elle and I met through Romvets, and Elle never fails to motivate me to be the very best author I can. A proud Air Force and Army veteran, Elle is a heroine beyond measure.
What do you make, bake, create or buy for the holidays, Elle?
I like to bake trays of goodies for my neighbors. My favorite goodies on the tray are mini loaves of banana bread, no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies and divinity. I love to bake and rarely do it the rest of the year. At the holidays I’m non-stop! Nothing says family and friends like a tray of homemade treats baked with love and thankfulness.
Do you have a military connection, Elle?
I love everything military. My father spent 20 years in the U.S. Air Force, my sister spent 14 years active duty in the U.S. Army and finished her 20 years in the Army National Guard. My brother spent 20 years in the U. S. Air Force, I spent 11 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and 9 years in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and my daugther spent 4 years in the U.S. Air Force. It’s in the family! I appreciate all the sacrifices of our military personnel and their families. It’s a tough life and sacrifice so much, some more than others. These are the men and women who help to protect our freedoms. Nothing makes me more proud than to see a man or woman in uniform and to hear the Star Spangled Banner.
