About the Author
Eleanor Sullo found many of her lifetime dreams fulfilled during a ten week period in 2001. She sold her first two romance novels, and contracted with Paulist Press for her memoir, 100 SEASONS OF LOVE. THE MOONRAKERS is now out at Wings Press, Inc., and THE EMERALD EYE is available online at Treble Heart Books, and soon to be in trade paperback. A graduate pastoral minister and spiritual director who conducts retreats and workshops for families and individuals, Eleanor Sullo received her Bachelor’s degree in English, magna cum laude, from Central Connecticut State University where she taught English with a university fellowship. She received her MA degree in Pastoral Ministry, with a certificate in Spiritual Direction from St. Joseph College, West Hartford, Connecticut and worked in religious education and adult faith formation with the Catholic Diocese of Norwich and in several parishes. She is a certified Meyers-Briggs counselor for Personality Typing for Psychological Development, and uses the well-known personality instrument in couples’, parents’ and family workshops.
