Elaine Hamill’s parents often wondered what would become of their lively, youngest daughter. When there was any mischief afoot, she always could be found in the middle if it. You can imagine their relief when she announced she was entering the convent, where she remained for twenty three years.
Although architecture always held a fascination for Elaine, fate destined her for the educational field as teacher, principal, teacher trainer, counselor and janitor (when one could not be found). While she was a member of the Society of the Holy Child, a deep insight into the multifaceted condition of the human spirit was gained. For years she was a professional student and her transcript looks like a travel log. For several years she taught sailors and marines at Navy bases and counseled divorced individuals which gave her a first hand experience with the pain people cause one another.
Her interests are many: reading, portrait painting, furniture building, designing, telling jokes and writing. Retirement affords her time to build stories, invent people and all sorts of situations in which they live.
