Ellie belfiglio

When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…



Bio: I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"

  11. Ellie, where’s the link to your book?

  12. Ellie, Hallo. Sorry to bother, I’m looking for your book at Amazon, I can’t find it. Is there anywhere I can go to get one? Or if you can send me a link at ss34@hawaii.edu. Thanks for your help.

  13. Good morning Aina! My name on the book is my full name {Ellie Kamran Belfiglio}. If you Google my name, you will see my book and other works I have done. The name of the book is “THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS” and it has a subtitle which says: ” A WOMAN’S STRUGGLE FROM OPPRESSION TO FREEDOM”. I just checked both Amazon and Google and find them in both places. In Amazon they have it with very cheap price for the used ones. I hope this can be useful to you.
    If you still can’t find it, send me your address and Name, I will mail one for you.
    God bless…

  14. Hopefully, it’ll come soon. And I will write a review via Amazon. Thanks again!

  15. Hi Ellie! I had to follow you again because wordpress decided to unfollow you for me. I noticed I didn’t see any of your poems so I came to look and sure enough… they unfollowed quite a few of my favorites. So that’s what’s up. :/ (I really enjoy your writing. )

  17. Hi Ellie, thank you for being across my blog. So glad to be across yours too 🙂 I am an immigrant as well. Have you ever seen your family again? I really struggle with being away from my loved ones, that in part is why I started writing. Good meeting you, Vonita.

  23. beautiful soul writing beautiful words and painting beautiful pictures that beautify this world. Ellie you are awesome.

  24. Hello Ellie! I’m having issues with email. But as I was looking at the writing page (making a new post) of wordpress I saw all the way on the bottom left, a button called Settings. If you scroll down within that section there is something there called “copy a post”. I think that may be what you are looking for – for reposting. Another option is to just start fresh in creating the post as if it was new and type in at the top “repost”. Those are the ideas I had. Sorry I did not write sooner, but I worked alot last week. Please erase this if you like after you are done with it. Blessings.

Let everybody be nice!
