It took Eileen’s karmic rescue dog Jamie to rock her world into becoming an author. Visiting libraries as a reading therapy team fueled her passion for children’s literacy. Semi-retired, Eileen devotes her time as a reading tutor; volunteers for two literacy organizations and as a dog-assisted therapy team for Pawsitive Friendships and East Valley Hospice. Eileen is a Board Member for the Artists of the Superstitions, a Friends of Scottsdale Library member, and still finds time for writing her Blueberry Bear series. Eileen lives in Chandler with her loves, Dennis and therapy dogs, Suki and Kong.
