For many years, Ellynore Seybold-Smith, her husband and two children lived aboard a sailboat. Adventures with the boat resulted in a book called THE WOODEN MISTRESS, first published in 1994. Years later, Ellynore and husband sailed across the Atlantic on a friend's boat. They enjoyed touring Europe in a VW camper. A few years later Ellynore was widowed but after a time she saw an opportunity to become my own person. That's when her first book was published. She now has four books published including a collection of short stories. Her latest book, RELEASED, a story of a 37 year old woman released from an Arizona Prison and trying to connect with her children she had no contact with for 15 years. The ride takes her across the country. She finds something she was not looking for. One reviewer says "a good solid plot with endearing and intriguing characters that tug at your heartstrings."
