As a writer, a teacher, and as an editor, I am hoping to connect with kindred spirits through this website. It’s also my way to stay in touch with my students, past and present, and with writing colleagues, agents and editors. I want to know what you are doing, what you are writing and publishing, and wish to keep you informed of my own doings.

NEWS TO SHARE:

My memoir, Only You, was published as a second edition in April 2019 by Brown Posey Press, an imprint of Sunbury Press. The book was originally published in April 2014 by Oak Tree Press.

You can see my Book page on this website.

My novel, Three Rooms, Shared Bath: a Landlady in the Hamptons, will be published by Sunbury Press in spring 2021. I am currently working on another memoir, set in the mid-1970s, when I moved to East Hampton and became a teacher of belly dancing.

Please read my Bio, Facts of (My) Life, Teaching, and Read my Work. These categories should tell you everything you want to know and more about this teacher/writer person, Eileen.

I add newly published material and update a Newsletter quarterly that has news about my Teaching and my students.
