INTRIGUING AUTHOR’S AND THEIR BOOKS REVIEW:
WOW!! Then Came Alexandra is an amazing story. I absolutely loved it. I was hooked from the first paragraph. It captured my attention and held it to the end.

E.L. Todd has crafted another great story. It has something for everyone. It has heartbreak, love, loss, family, friendship, and twists that you don’t see coming. I cannot wait to see where E.L. Todd will take us next in this series.
My journey to this profession was slightly unorthodox. I received my bachelor's degree in biological sciences, worked as an award-winning researcher, and worked various jobs to pay the bills. While I enjoyed every moment of this adventure, it wasn't my passion. I've been writing since I was a young girl and have read anything that I can get my hands on. When people ask me what my favorite book is, I always respond, "All of them. “After I showed my work to my closest friends and gained their confidence, I realized that this is something I could commit my life to, something that I love. I never imagined--dreamed--that I could make a living as a writer. This is the greatest profession that I ever could have asked for, and I am so thankful for the support from everyone in my life. How many other jobs let you work in your pajamas? My first novel, Soul Catcher, was released in August 2013, and my second novel, Soul Binders, will be released this fall. The Saga concludes in early 2014. I hope you've enjoyed reading this series as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
