About Author, Ellie Pulikonda

A shocking family drama with dark secrets around every corner, this book will keep you turning pages until the wee hours of the night. With over 20 fantastic Amazon Reviews already in, this should be your next read
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and currently lives in Southern Oregon, Ellie graduated from Kennewick High, of Washington state. Went on to attend several colleges, and earned her BA in Education, MA in Library Science, and MS in Adult Education. Now a new prolific writer, and fantastic published author, she has worked various jobs in her career life.
“My life has encompassed many quite varied experiences. I have worked in an attorney’s office, a travel agency, a welfare office, a newspaper office, as a teacher, a public librarian and finally as the director of a public library. I am or have been a mother, a daughter, a single woman, a wife, a widow, a partner, a grandmother and even a great grandmother. Writing has been the one constant through all of these.”
I write for the pure joy of writing. At first it was journals and musings, then short newspaper articles, some unpublished staged mystery/comedy plays, scripts for amateur musical productions, and now books. My hope is that my readers will enjoy my books and also be prodded to think about the actions and motives of my characters, to question their choices and why they made them, and to see the characters with greater insight.
I’ve been writing almost as long as I could hold a pencil and reading since I learned those strange marks in books meant something. Now I can indulge my passion for both. Life is good!

About The New Book:
Three women, each caught in circumstances which limit her freedom to be, to act, to live as she chooses. Each reaches out tentatively, only to fall back in anger and fear. Despair is their constant companion.
Helping each other may be the only hope for each of them but their tentative bond is threatened by their fear. Trust is an elusive and alien concept to each. Moments when they are in accord are rare but they do happen, perhaps giving them a glimmer of the hope and the will they need, to keep trying.
Join Mae, Mira, and Carla as they navigate the tricky path of finding faith.

About “Split Second”
We all know of families that seem to be golden. Life touches them lightly and success is the norm. But when such a family is faced with a potential tragedy, the seemingly perfect family breaks open to reveal flaws and shortcomings.
Liz Reynolds is the only daughter in such a family. Her attempted suicide forces her parents to examine the role each has played in bringing her to so much despair. Old secrets they have kept from each other and from their daughter threaten every facet of their relationships, as they gradually come to light.
Do they have the courage to admit their own shortcomings in order to save Liz?
Split Second by Ellie Pulikonda is available from amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle editions.
What Readers Are Saying About, “Split Second” . . .
“Ellie Pulikonda does a magnificent job of holding the readers’ attention by giving just enough information about the characters to make you want to delve further. I loved this book. Couldn’t put it down. I am going to recommend Split Second to all my friends.”
“Enjoyed reading every minute of Split Second”
A great read!! Ellie Pulikonda kept me intrigued to the very end of reading Split Second. I enjoyed reading this family mystery, especially the dialogue. I appreciated her slowly sharing the characters’ personalities, issues, history, and yet presented us with hope.
“Fast paced, intriguing, neat twists”
Engages the reader’s mind in understanding the character’ minds, even that of the doctors who are not supposed to let their own feelings into their therapeutic decisions. But should they really keep themselves out? What if the patient’s best bet is a doctor well invested in his client? What if he’s the only one who seems to be fighting for her?
Why are parents the way they are? Can we judge them without knowing all the circumstances that formed them? It reaches the point that a very disturbed young woman might be sentenced to murder if her own mind can’t be unlocked to find the truth. A real page turner. Highly recommend it!
