Personal Mantra:  Living in the flow of God’s plan


Name: Elaine  


Pen name:  Simply EL

I live my life very simply, and it is enriched and fulfilling.

EL is what my family calls me.  It is a nickname my sister gave me, a derivative from ELaine.


Humble beginnings

In the illustrious words of Steve Martin (I love you Steve) from the movie The Jerk, “I was born a poor black child.”   I spent part of my childhood growing up in Woodlawn on the South Side of Chicago near 63rd and Cottage.  In my tween years, we moved to an area just to the north called Hyde Park.  Hyde Park is an eclectic neighborhood with big University of Chicago influence.  The community has a wonderful multicultural inclusive vibe to it.  It was great growing up there, and I believe living there has helped to make me who I am today.




Current Domicile and Domestication


 I am a proud mother of two wonderful children.  They were both adopted when they were babies.  There are 1000s of children out there waiting to become sons and daughters.  Please consider the adoption option.
