Hello readers, thanks for stopping by. I’m happy you’re here!
Hi, I'm Eliana West. I'm passionate about writing stories that captivate readers and incorporate diverse characters and blend them with the rich backdrop of history. Love, hope, and history are the key ingredients that I bring to my stories that reflect the diversity of the world we live in. My books will tug at your heartstrings and keep you spellbound.
When I'm not busy helping my characters find their happily ever after, you can find me on an adventure with my husband in our Volkswagen Westfalia, lovingly named Bianca. We love exploring small towns and wineries around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. I have two wonderful children, a daughter and a son who are now making their way in the world. They are loving, kind, and compassionate, and every day I’m proud I get to be their mom.
But it's not just about storytelling for me. I'm also an advocate for diversity in literature. In fact, I started a Facebook group called Writers for Diversity back in 2017. It's a place where writers can come together, have meaningful conversations, and promote inclusivity in storytelling. I want to encourage writers all over the world to create diverse characters and build immersive worlds that truly reflect the beautiful tapestry of humanity.
In 2022, I was honored to have won the Nancy Pearl Award for genre fiction for my book, The Way Home.
So that's me! Eliana West, the storyteller, adventurer, and diversity advocate. It's all about crafting captivating tales while making a positive impact on the world.
