Author/Speaker Elaine Marie Cooper is a self-described history geek. Her bookshelves are filled with volumes about the American Revolution, an era she became fascinated with when growing up in Massachusetts.
Her passions are her family, her faith in Christ and writing—usually about the American Revolution, a frequent subject of her novels.
Her most recent publication is a definite change in her usual topic. Bethany’s Calendar is a non-fiction memoir of her daughter who died of a brain tumor in 2003. This is the book she never wanted to write, yet felt an inner prompting to pen her daughter’s journey through terminal cancer. It has already touched many lives and her prayer is that it will help each reader, whether a caregiver, patient or friend of a patient. Or just anyone who faces an unimaginable struggle in their life.
Elaine is also a contributing writer to Fighting Fear, Winning the War at Home by Edie Melson, and I Choose You, a romance Anthology. Her freelance work has appeared in both newspapers and magazines, and she blogs regularly at http://ColonialQuills.blogspot.com.
