About me/contact

I was born in Paris, France, and moved to the United States at the age of 13.  I’ve amassed several degrees in literature and writing around the San Francisco Bay Area (Stanford University, Mills College, UC Davis), where I still live with one scientist husband and two elderly half-Siamese cats who like to eat random things off the floor.  My novel, 13 rue Thérèse, was released by Little, Brown in February 2011.  Foreign rights have been sold to the UK, Italy, Russia, Poland, France.  Another novel, In the Red, is also forthcoming from Little, Brown in October 2014.  I am, of course, trying to write yet another novel and I have a bunch of pages but I DON’T KNOW WHAT ORDER THEY GO IN.  Please send hugs/chocolate/narcotics.

Write me at elenamaulishapiro (at) gmail (dot) com, or contact me through my agent.

  1. I obviously don’t know you, I love 13 rue Therese; however, as writing exposes the soul deeply, I believe you are a very exceptional woman

    My husband and I were in Paris last week to celebrate his birthday and we had a tiny apt on the corner of rue Therese and rue Ste Anne! Your building was the frist place I found! Brought pictures of it home!
    Have stayed fascinated an inspired by your book and now helping a friend who discovered a box of momentos in an old house she bought.
