Elle Cosimano grew up in a suburb outside of Washington, DC with two very normal parents and an occasionally adorable little brother who ate her pet caterpillars and pillaged her Barbie Dream House. He got the super-high metabolism, great cheek-bones and long lashes. So unfair. Elle got the gift of vivid imagination. The ability to see something so clearly in her mind that it tends to become a reality. Some people call it goal-orientation, but she prefers to think of it as highly productive day-dreaming.
