Hi! I’m Elita.

Welcome to my second act.

writer of personal narratives, micro-memoirs and to-do lists

Words found me first in Singapore, penciled onto crisp paper between the covers of school composition books.

They grew up and got fancy, posturing across glossy lifestyle magazine pages, attempting to seize the essence of affluent 30-something Singaporeans during the late ’80s. When I came to the U.S. they stayed close, and together we captured on newsprint the generous spirit of a small town in Southeast Ohio.

Then, life.

Embracing, consuming, ever-changing, beautiful life. Now, it’s time to pick up the pen and invite the words to play again.

Wherever they choose to roam.


So glad you’re here!
