E.L. Grubbs doesn't like to write about just the conventional. Conventional is boring. Her works border on fantasy, surrealism and magical realism. Her philosophy: why read fiction when it surrounds mundane everyday life?
Being a well-traveled person, she gets inspiration for her works from both the West and the East thus catering to a worldwide readership. E.L. Grubbs likes to weave little messages into each piece of fiction meant to make readers ponder and to open their minds to possibilities.
