About the Author
Eleanor Lois Tomczyk was born in East Cleveland, Ohio. The year was 1948, before civil and women's rights. Her story begins with a self-proclaimed "ignoble" birth of dubious parentage, and her life was a challenge from the get-go. But it was precisely this challenge that shaped her into the unsinkable, witty, bright spirit that she is today.
Tomczyk left that life in the ghetto and made one of her own choosing. She has crafted herself into a successful career woman, working in brand marketing as a Sr. EA and event planner for a top Fortune 500 company. She has also been a teacher, an actress, a singer, and an award-winning voiceover artist. Her popular humor blog has led her to pen the book Monsters' Throwdown, in which she shares the details of her remarkable life.

Monsters' indeed. Thankfully Ms. Tomczyk has slain her monsters and at the same time exposed them for what they are. I am forever a fan. This is a must read for anyone interested in what the world was like for children without defenders, without caretakers and before the days of desegregation across the US, not just the South. What an amazing story, what an amazing life, what an amazing victory.
Eleanor has a wonderful writing talent that makes reading the painful yet amazing story entertaining.
Monster's Throwdown is a beautiful memoir of a lost child trying to be found. In short- brilliant dialogue and a story that couldn't be fabricated; these are just two reasons to read this amazing book. -Phil Madeira
