I never thought in all my years of writing I would ever have to explain how to pronounce one of my character’s name. I mean, I’m a big fan of simple straightforward names for my characters. At least, I thought that’s what I was doing when I named Claire’s love interest Elam—apparently he’s not so straightforward. I’ve had quite a few people ask about his name. It’s pronounced E-lum, at least, that’s how I hear it whenever he is in a scene.
He’s so fantastically loyal and in love with Claire, even when her body is unconscious and life support, he made the perfect adult to drag into the plot with the other teenagers in my latest novel Stuffed Souls. A story with heart and depth that keeps you turning the page. It’s a read worth sharing. Tell your friends.
