About Ellen Gerstein
I’m the director of Marketing at a large, not-quite-in-NYC publishing house, where I work on books about technology. I’m also the mother of 2 great kids, IT Boy and Soccer Girl (my mini-me daughter). I have a husband too (that would be Mr. IT), but he doesn’t like being blogged about. He’s kind of a luddite. Opposites do attract, you know. My hobbies include those of any other typical 15 year old boy, except for the part about my not being a 15 year old boy…gadgets, downloadable music, reading (esp. SF), sports of all kinds (watching baseball, hockey and football; coaching soccer; playing tennis). My daughter plays soccer during every waking minute, it seems, so I am truly a “soccer mom”. My ultimate goal is to spend more of my precious free time reading books that have nothing to do with technology, preferably on a bright and sunny palm tree-lined beach (pina colada optional). Some people know me as Ellen Reavis, some as Ellen Reavis Gerstein. Either way, that and $2 gets me on the subway every time.
I am currently recovering from a kick where I was naming blog entries after songs by The Smiths. It’s better now, but I cannot promise it won’t happen again.
