Ellen O'Neill


In her early thirties, Ellen discovered what she never knew: she was not her father’s daughter; her real identity a guarded secret. She fought for her success, battled addictions, and raised two remarkable children alone in spite of the legacy of shame. For a secret love child, the toughest battle was within. Just when she thought all was conquered, there was one final revelation....

Her main loves are her two grown children, and her private consulting business, Ellenconnects, which focuses on philanthropy initiatives. Currently she is launching a column called Ask E that focuses on coping with family secrets.
Born in Rochester, New York, she has since then lived all over the United States, and now resides in Los Angeles and Vail, Colorado.
A percentage of her royalties will benefit The Clare Foundation in Los Angeles, a nonprofit organization providing treatment and recovery services
for alcoholism and substance abuse to individuals, families, and the community.
