Ellen Scarano is insatiably curious about everything that happens in
the world. Talking about events is one thing, but writing…

As a writer, her motto is, “Everyone has a story; not everyone is
willing to tell it.” Writing is for reading; two excellent skills to
nurture and maintain. Both reflect learning, exploring, discussing,
pondering, wondering, feeling, explaining, seeking, a dash of
humility, and loving.

Originally from Connecticut, Ellen lives with her husband, two adult
daughters, two grandsons, a granddaughter and four cats in Maryland.
