About the Author: Elaine Cecelia George


She was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, in November of 1946. Her early child-hood years were spent living in Lorneville, New Brunswick, a small fishing village inhabited by many of her mother's family, situated along the Bay of Fundy. Many of her poems and short stories are about that place and time, and those wonderful people.

When she was 7 years of age, her father joined the army and the family moved to different parts of Ontario until her farther left the army and the family returned to Saint John, New Brunswick. She remained there until the age of 17, then moved to Vancouver in search of adventure and opportunity.

As a child Elaine, wrote poems and little stories in a wide-lined mammoth scribbler that she hid under her mattress. She never shared these with anyone. These writings were her private world and for her eyes only.

The only writing she ever shared, were the compositions she wrote for school assignments. In grade seven, her English teacher (Mr. Jacobs) told her she was born to be a writer. As much as this validation boasted her ego, it would be many years before she herself believed it and mustered up the courage to post one of her poems on Poetry Soup. The positive response she got from people around the world was all the encouragement she needed.

Since then, Elaine has gone on to win Three Poetry Soup International Awards, and countless awards for contests sponsored by Premium Members. She has written, designed, printed, published and sold two volumes of poetry: Where the Heart resides, and Where the Heart Resides – a Poetic Memoir, sold at Indigo's, Chapters an Cole's bookstores. Many of her poems and short stories have been published in magazines and books in both Canada and the United States.  Earthbound Angels Made of Stone - an epic written for a collection of photographs by the Canadian photographer, Darren Creighton, was published in June of 2016.

Her poems: Violin, Snowflake, A Winter Rose, A Gift From God, The Promise of Spring and Where My True Love Lives, have been used as teaching tools for various schools and Universities providing English Poetry classes on line. Her poem, 'Snowflake', has been featured with art work in Art Galleries in New York. Her poem, Violin has been featured with art work on several websites as well as the World Wide Website, 'I Write the Music'.

She is, and will always be, eternally grateful to Poetry Soup and the members who helped her become who she was meant to be.

Currently, she lives in Wainfleet, Ontario, Canada, with her husband, wee dog and two cats.

Her current projects consist of: Three novels in various stages of construction, a compilation of short stories that will eventually be a book, and a third volume of poetry.



                                                In the peace a quiet of the night

                                             My mind falls still and fills with light

                                                      As once again I write.
