A romance author, coffee addict, shoe fiend, hopeless romantic

& killer story teller. 


I'm a little neurotic; I function on a tiny amount of sleep, and a huge amount of caffeine. I love old movies, green skittles, and have a slightly strange, and irrational fear of stormy weather.


When I'm not locked away scribbling down the crazy stories that occupy my mind, I can be found at home in East Yorkshire with my husband and two children.


I'm unashamedly fickle and can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a good book, new shoes, or a bottle of bubbles. 

Oh, and did I mention I also love to write?



"From the first page to the last, A Life Less Beautiful is an unputdownable read. Elle writes with the level of romance we expect of Nicholas Sparks and the heart-wrenching emotion of John Green. I was blown away by this book. Elle Brooks has set a new personal best."

Bestselling Author Laura Carter 

"If you love an angsty book that's full of surprises, grab your tissues, a glass of wine, and hold on for the ride."

Bestselling Author Kathryn Andrews

"Once again Elle Brooks has made my heart soar and then ripped it from my chest. This book is full of so MUCH. A rollercoaster ride is putting it mildly. What a strong, enthralling, compelling, spellbinding, and heart-breaking book."

Bestselling Author Anne Mercier

Want to read it for yourself? Here's the blurb... 

Ellis Hughes has loved the girl next door since he was ten-years-old. She was his sun, moon, and every visible star in a clear night sky. She was also his biggest regret.

When a terrible accident rips Ellis and Harlow apart, it shatters both their hearts beyond repair. More than a decade later, Ellis has paid his penance, but his regret still lingers, and the love he once harbored for his childhood sweetheart has never faded.

What Ellis believes has been destroyed forever, slowly comes back to life, only for a cruel twist of fate to intervene. Knowing he cannot live his life without Harlow in it, he faces the ultimate test of selflessness. He must sacrifice his own heart to mend hers.
