Welcome to the Storage Room. Come in and have a cup of coffee. There is always a pot brewing on the table behind me. When I started this blog, I really was scribbling in the little storage space off of my children’s play room. It was freezing in the winter and got up to 110 degrees in the summer. Since then, the kids have grown up, moved out, and I have taken over one of their bedrooms as my writing room.  I now have a proper desk with a comfy chair and everything. I kept the blog’s name as a reminder of where my writing journey began.

You can find my official book blog at ElizabethHein.com.

Elizabeth Hein writes women’s fiction with a bit of an edge. Her novels explore the role of friendship in the lives of adult women and themes of identity. How To Climb The Eiffel Tower follows one young woman as she navigates the world of cancer treatment with the help of her friends. Overlook and Escape Plan chronicle how a small group of women bands together to free themselves from terrible marriages and forge their own paths in life.

Elizabeth grew up in Massachusetts within an extended family of storytellers. Her childhood was filled with excellent food and people loudly talking over each other. She and her husband now live in Durham, North Carolina.

    I enjoy reading your posts and comments. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thanks Dennis! I will have to give some thought to coming up with seven interesting things about myself and who to pass the honor on to. Thanks again for thinking of me.

  3. Elizabeth, it sounds as if you and i are in the same place in writing except add another seven years to me (and I started later with writing, I suspect). I raised 3 girls in that extra 7 (who turned out wonderfully, btw), and am in 3 writing groups, as well. As far as the the novels and short stories are concerned, it sounds as if we’re in the same spot. Thanks for liking my post “On The Road Again.” I can see you know how it is!
