Inga Ellzey
Elizabeth Grant Entrepreneur Award   
 
 
Inga Ellzey
Founder & CEO
Writer
 
In recognition of the excellence and success she has manifested in her business career and her equally successful foray into the dramatically different world of fiction writing with her debut novel The Exchange, Inga Ellzey has been selected by TheWIFTS Foundation to receive the 2013 Elizabeth Grant Entrepreneur Award.

Who could imagine that the little girl stepping off the boat from war-torn Germany back in 1955 would grow up to be a successful American businesswoman, nationally recognized expert in her field, and author of a groundbreaking popular novel.
The Exchange
Inga Ellzey has made a career, and a life, out of defying the odds and achieving her dreams. From her humble beginnings as an immigrant child, she has risen through hard work, ambition, and a belief in herself to become a model of today's successful American woman.

Inga's educational credentials include a master's degree in public administration, a bachelor's degree in medical records administration and a national certification as a registered health information administrator.

As owner and president of the Inga Elllzey Practice Group, Inc., Inga advises physicians across the nation on medical billing practices. She also owns two national billing services that rank in the top 100 companies in a field of over 5,000. She is a leading authority on medical billing, and has written, taught and lectured extensively over the past two decades. She also works to improve the lives of others through mentoring her diverse 100-person staff.

Now, Inga is the proud author of The Exchange, a novel that blends romance, mystery and adventure into an unforgettable tale of passion, drama and suspense.

Synopsis: After seven years in the Witness Protection Program, Jewelle Dawson hopes to regain her freedom and her identity by embarking on a one-month Mediterranean Cruise. With full knowledge that the Gambrelini mob is still hunting her and despite desperate pleas and warnings from John Murray, her Witness Protection Officer, Jewelle flies to Barcelona and boards the luxury cruise ship, the Emerald of the Seas, in search of interesting new friends, a fresh beginning, and hopefully...romance. Two men quickly find their way into Jewelle s protected life and heart. Max Caldwell, the fabulously wealthy playboy gambler lures Jewelle into his life of risk with promises of adventure and romance, yet lets Jewelle know upfront that he s a man who wants no ties or commitments. In spite of his warnings, Jewelle finds herself in a game of chance, willing to risk it all for love. Paul Rosini, the handsome, widower pilot, fascinates Jewelle with his gentle ways and romantic charms, although Jewelle knows that there s a hidden, deeper, darker side that he won t reveal to her...or anyone. Through exotic ports-of-call in the Mediterranean, Jewelle finds new relationships with Frances Wakefield, the eccentric internationally famous mystery thriller authoress, Randy and Sarah Harrison, Picco, the Italian Countess, and Kenny Scott, the physically grotesque but lovable Vietnam Vet. All add fun, adventure, and intrigue to Jewelle s escape vacation. Love and friendship are put to the ultimate test when the mob discovers Jewelle s vulnerable location. Two will die, relationships are defined, and Max and Paul will be forced to reveal their secret pasts when all the characters come together in a daring exchange to give Jewelle freedom from the Gambrelinis once and for all.

"I didn't write The Exchange to make money," Inga says. "I wrote it to achieve my dream of having a second career as a novelist and to prove to myself and my staff that as long as you have passion and confidence in yourself, your dreams can be your realities."

For Inga Ellzey, The Exchange is yet another dream come true.
