Elayne Palmer, a retired teacher, lives in Abilene, Texas, with husband Phil and bordoodle Finn. She lives near her grown children and grandchildren and loves the happy chaos that occurs when they are all together.
She has had the opportunity to live in the Middle Eastern country of Palestine and on the island of Cyprus, and she has traveled to Nigeria and the Dominican Republic. Meeting children in all of these contexts, she has been encouraged by their strength and resilience.
Where is Radar? is her first children’s book expected to be released in the Fall of 2023. Followed by Jameel’s Plan, a children’s book which she hopes will inspire all children who read it to know that each of them has an important role to play in their own homeland and their own education.
