Palm Beach, Fl – The author George Eliot once said, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
After a career in education, Marcia Chellis became a New York Times and London Times bestselling author of four books: Living With the Kennedys: The Joan Kennedy Story; Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives; The Girls From Winnetka; and her most recent book Love Letters in the Sand.
“I write books for and about women overcoming obstacles,” says Chellis.
Chellis’s focus changed from writing for children to writing for women after a life-changing professional experience. While living in Boston, Chellis developed an unlikely friendship with her neighbor, Joan Kennedy, wife of Senator Ted Kennedy.
Living With the Kennedys: The Joan Kennedy Story, published by Simon & Schuster, did not have the typical response of a biography. Chellis would learn how Joan’s story inspired women all over the country, who believed if Joan Kennedy could recover, they could too.
For her next book, Chellis profiled ordinary women, the woman next door—not those with enormous resources to aid in their recoveries. Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives, tells the personal stories of these women and their heroic achievements.
Chellis’s third book The Girls From Winnetka recounts the stories of five women who come of age in the fifties. Her most recent work, Love Letters in the Sand, is her first work of fiction.
