About Ellen Ulken (Atlanta, Georgia Author)
With roots in Hamilton County, Florida, Ellen moved throughout her school years with her military family all over the United States and Germany. She attended Piedmont Hospital School of Nursing in Atlanta, Georgia, and worked for several years as a nurse before becoming a flight attendant. She lived for 40 years in the New Orleans area where her son, Eric, grew up. Ellen now resides in Peachtree City, Georgia, with her friend and companion, Jerry Watts M.D. (whom she’s known since nursing school), and his English Setter, 'Scout.'
Ellen came to writing later in life and has penned a biography, "Beautiful Dreamer, The Life of Stephen Collins Foster." She co-authored with Clarence Lyons and Rebecca Watts "Peachtree City," a history of the town in pictures and captions through Arcadia’s Images of America series. Her biography, "Silent Sisters: Profiles of the short lives of Karen Carpenter, Patsy Cline, Cass Elliot, Ruby Elzy, Janis Joplin and Selena Quintanilla-Perez" was published on Create Space.
She’s a member of a historic Peachtree City chorus called “Music Alive,” The Peachtree City Writer’s Circle, The Friends of the Peachtree City Library, The Peachtree City Garden Club, The Georgia Writers Association, and three historical societies.
