You CAN Go Home Again—Just in a Different Way . May 21-June 10, 2014
I’m going back East in two weeks. It’s a Seedlings Book Tour to personally bring my Seedlings, Stories of Relationships to friends, family, writing colleagues, and friends I haven’t met yet.
I was brought up on Long Island, NY, lived in Manhattan for seven years, and then New Jersey for thirty-four years, before our cross-country relocation to Tucson, Arizona.
I started and honed my writing skills in New Jersey writing groups and at open mics, and launched my first book Thinking of Miller Place in NJ in 2008. And now I’m taking Seedlings to share my garden of relationship stories at book events, Author Talks, and writing groups.
If an event is listed as By Invitation and you want to come, contact me. I’ll see if there’s space left. I want to see everyone and do everything in the time frame of May 21-June 10. Of course I know that can’t happen, but it sure will be fun trying.

Dear Ethel: I will be in your back pocket in spirit as you enjoy your book tour. As I said, I will keep my copy of Seedlings with me in the event that your tour finds its way to FL which I recommend. There are a lot of people down here writing, buying, and learning about how to write and would love to hear from you in first person….much love, Aino Kayt
I’d love to bring Seedlings to Florida. Meeting with other writers, and readers, is always a pleasure, and inspiring.
SEEDLINGS STORIES OF RELATIONSHIPS by Ethel Lee-Miller is a beautifully written book of short stories that are funny, poignant and just plain entertaining. The book’s characters span the life-cycle from pre-school to adolescent to adult to octogenarian. The author’s self-proclaimed “love affair with words” is evident in her ability to place the reader in the scene with vivid descriptive prose. At the same time, her stories move the reader to chuckles, to laughter and also to tears.
I found much to identify with in these stories and know that those who have any experience with relationships will too. That’s just about everyone, isn’t it?
I highly recommend SEEDLINGS to anyone who enjoys well-crafted writing and heart-touching scenes. ~Hank
