Author
Elsie Dillard was born and raised in London. She moved to the United States in 1957 and married a few years later. In 1961, she moved to Seattle and founded the travel agency Elsie from England, which specialized in arranging bed and breakfast trips to Great Britain. She ran the agency for twenty-five years before it was sold. After her youngest daughter married and moved away, Dillard thought the house was too lonely and opened her own bed and breakfast called Bay Manor. The bed and breakfast gave her a way to meet new people and to express her own European hospitality in America. Although Dillard remains in Seattle, she still travels to England and Ireland frequently to enjoy the atmosphere and update her travel guides.
