From Elaine:
"I write books to help people find their strength and their lost learnings from childhood. Even though I prefer to stay indoors (some call me a hermit) I've been trekking around the world, sleeping in stranger's homes, riding crowded trains and generally doing everything but giving in to my true nature. Why? Because it's the best way to beat panic-- short of taking drugs!"
