She is both a writer and an artist. Eunice began her career as a city desk reporter for a series of small town newspapers. Later, as a stay-at-home mom, she wrote poetry and fiction for national markets with some success. Eunice is author of From the Suburbs With Love, a series of interviews with poets for cable TV in the San 719no5vvjzl-_ux250_
Francisco Bay Area.

As a visual artist, her work has been shown, most recently, in Nevada County, California.   Eunice has been a participant in juried shows on five continents and in most major cities across the United States. She was one of 300 women world-wide invited by Arizona State University to show work at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China.

Today, writing is her primary interest. Eunice says that her recent work “embraces those with a zest for life unquenched by time.” To this end, her novella, The Trouble with Tom: in which five gallant old men flout the law, was published in June of 2010. This humorous story involves a rogue turkey, the senior retirement community where he takes up residence and the difficulties experienced getting rid of him.

Her advice to new writers:  You need to be ambitious to the point of dogged determination and accept rejection as a learning tool.  Write every day. Write only because nothing else so fully engages your interest.

Eunice Banks lives in northern California with one husband and one cat named Grover, that thinks he is head of household.
