Ela makes her living as a freelance author, journalist and editor, often covering home renovation and decor, business, retail, technology and various lifestyle issues. You can read her serious stuff on her official website, www.elaschwartz.com. In her spare time she enjoys reading,collecting unusual names of real people, engaging in aimless contemplation, and writing short stories, poetry and odd observations on life. Although her personal musings and such have not won her wide acclaim, she takes comfort in the possibility that she will either be discovered posthumously or that there is a famous, rich, and successful looking-glass version of herself living in a parallel universe.
