Born and raised in Minnesota, Eleanor Jane resides with her husband, Jim, in central Minnesota. They have three daughters. Some of her favorite hobbies are gardening, reading and spending time with her family. After acquiring a lake home recently, she enjoys the natural beauty of the lake and the wildlife there. She loves nothing more than to watch the many varieties of migrant birds that come to her feeders, the wild turkeys, loons, swans and eagles, deer and the occasional bobcat and bear. She started writing for herself a few years ago during a short period between jobs. Once her family learned of it, they encouraged her to have her works published. She writes in her spare time as much as possible.
