In 2010 Eileen published her first book, “Stalking Mary” a true crime story of one man’s fifteen-year obsession with his High School Algebra teacher – her kidnapping and the murder of a young child who witnessed the kidnapping. Published by Beaver’s Pond Press February 1, 2010. www.stalkingmary.com
Stalking Mary was chosen by ABC Primetime Television and made into an hour-long 20/20 feature entitled “Mind Games” televised in June, 2010.
A psychological thriller – loosely based on the bizarre murder of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby Connor by Laci's husband Scott Peterson who is on death row in California.
In this thriller, I pose the question, "What would happen if a happily pregnant woman discovers horrific patterns of behavior in her husband's ancestors, and suspects that she and her baby might succomb to deadly family traditions."
