Elaine has loved to read since she was old enough to read. Walking miles to a local library or waiting for the bookmobile with friends on a warm summer afternoon was an activity Elaine enjoyed as a child.
A passion for writing must have started when she and her new husband lived in Levittown, Pennsylvania in the early 1960's and both their families lived in Cincinnati, Ohio. Since e-mail didn't exist yet, the most economical way of keeping both sets of parents and siblings informed of the events of their lives and the activities and growth of their children was to write long and descriptive letters.
Elaine has always mused what it would be like to be a published author. Until recently, an idea of writing for publication, or the time to indulge the idea never seems to come to fruition.
Keeping up with a full time job, husband, three children plus all the duties of running a household has kept Elaine pretty busy for most of her life. Elaine and her husband have lived in Harrison, Ohio since 1984.
A New Home for Crackers is her first attempt at a child's story. Elaine hopes to hear from her readers by e-mail to Timely@Starband.net
