Filled with hilarious and poignant honesty, her personal stories deliver down-home wisdom, southern style. It is a voice which finds the heart and the funny bone, riveting audiences wherever she goes. Elizabeth Ellis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains hearing stories from her Grandfather, a mountain minister. The “Divine Miss E” is a versatile, riveting teller of Appalachian and Texas tales and stories of heroic American women, though her personal stories are arguably her best.
