“If every writer wrote for fame and fortune alone, then books would have well-placed advertisements interwoven with commercial storylines and characters already designated for stars of the silver screen. I must admit fortune would be nice, but I rue the hot spotlight of fame; so I suppose I’ll content myself with living a simply novel life, advertisement-free.”
Eli Constant lives in Virginia with her husband and two daughters. She is surrounded by battlefield country, farmland, and lakes. Currently, she spends her days being a devoted mother and, of course, writing. Eli feels fortunate that her marriage is one of real love and she thinks her children are the coolest people in the world. She also feels so lucky to have an extended family that is ever present with encouragement and kind words.
Eli completed coursework at USC-L, Columbia College, TAMU-CC, and George Mason University. She enjoyed a varied course load, but finally settled on Biology and focused on a career in lab research. She spent time in Texas volunteering at Flour Bluff Shrimp Mariculture Lab [and being paid in Pink Hawaiian Shrimp- which was, in a word, delicious.] and also spent time at NIH participating in an Animal Research Program in the Infectious Disease Dept. It took two years working in Histology/Pathology for Eli to realize she wanted to be a writer. She is still very interested in the Sciences and hopes to use her background knowledge effectively within her writing.
Her other interests include art with focus on charcoal medium, walking her American Foxhound, Dottie, eating egg-drop, wonton soup from the local delivery place, and watching low-budget Sci-Fi movies.
