About the author:
With one foot planted in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia and the other in the streets of Brooklyn, New York, Elena DeRosa enjoys the best of both worlds. Born and raised in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, Elena primarily resides in Roanoke with her husband, two children, and quirky Malti-Zhu.
A former videotape editor, producer, and freelance newspaper columnist, Elena's most rewarding career has been the years spent raising her children. Elena now looks forward to being able to spend more time on her passion...writing. Blogging, photography, and paranormal investigating are her hobbies.
"Fractured Facade," a novel written as memoir, was her debut book. "The Valentine's Day Curse," a short story, is her most recent publication.

Marie's peaceful life in Virginia is shattered the moment she receives word from her brother: "I just got a call from a detective. Daddy's dead." Rushing to her family home in Brooklyn, New York, Marie seeks answers to her father's mysterious death only to discover disturbing occurrences and encounter acts of betrayal.
After her questions are amplified and suspicions confirmed surrounding her father's ex-girlfriend, Marie becomes frustrated by how oblivious so many had been, and continue to be, to the wily con-artist.
Inheriting her father's scheming ex-girlfriend becomes a journey Marie never imagined she'd be forced to travel.
Written as memoir, and based on a true story, Fractured Facade is a cautionary tale for anyone concerned about a parent after the loss of their spouse. The survivor, often thrust into an unfamiliar world, can find it quite different from the dating scene of their youth; one where some people create facades to mask their true intentions. Sadly, loneliness can cause an otherwise intelligent person to behave foolishly.
"Fractured Facade" is the tale of a father's death, a daughter's life, and a sociopath's vendetta.
