Eileen's first serious attempt at commercial writing was in 2004. She put together a history of the development of the village she loved for the benefit of future generations. This was well received and thus encouraged, she moved into short stories - several of which have been accepted for magazines. This unexpected achievement encouraged her to try writing a novel - based in that very village, obviously - and this was completed after three years and is now doing quite well on Amazon both as a paperback and electronic edition.
