About Ellie Atherton:

In the late 90s, she embarked on a nursing career and chose end-of-life-care as her medical focus. During her hospice nursing career the dying patients she cared for often shared their thoughts, fears, and visions around death with Ellie, and she was inspired to learn from them. She carried journals in her car to record the details of the profound conversations they were having. This was when the seeds of her books were planted. She wrote at length about the incredible unexplained events she was witnessing and the important lessons she was learning from these experts on dying–the patients.

Ellie has lived in the same quaint New Hampshire town for more than thirty-five years, she has three grown children and three grandchildren.
