Eleanor is a seasoned storyteller and motivational speaker on the subjects of overcoming the monsters in our lives such as being a black zombie in a right-wing Christian movement who escaped after 36 years (Death of an Oreo Cookie), surviving rearing children as a know-it-all helicopter baby-boomer (Mom, Dad, I Hate You!), and growing old (Once it was ‘Make Love Not War,’ Now It’s All About the Missing Body Parts).
