For most of her life, Ellynore Seybold-Smith was a wife and mother. It was not long after her children married and moved away that her husband died way too young. As grief therapy, she wrote her first book, THE WOODEN MISTRESS. It was published by a small press in Baltimore. It was not until she had a miraculous recovery from cancer that she started writing seriously. In the past three years, she has had another 4 books published with another one pending, and several more still in production. Now she is 75 and work harder than ever.
