Eileen Doyon Turned To Writing To Heal After The Passing Of Her Father
Eileen Doyon started her book series as a healing project after her dad passed away in 2011 of lung cancer. Since then, she has published six books, with a seventh one on its way. Two of her books have been on Amazon’s best sellers list. Unforgettable Faces and Stories is a growing community of readers and storytellers of everyday people.
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
After releasing my first two books, the feedback was overwhelming from people – first with reading my series, and second of being able to be a storyteller.
