WELCOME!   I am a fiction writer of four books. I write about what I feel is most important in life. By stringing words together in a story to say the things that many of us feel and think, readers have told me that they pause...and think...and feel...and appreciate the experience. What an honor! I encourage you to pause...to read...and write about what you feel and think is most important in your life.   Please take a look around and let me know what you think. Looking forward to hearing from you...enjoy!      E.G.

Chasing a dream is impossible if it isn’t your dream. 

Living life is empty if it isn’t your life.



Eli tells the story of his teenage self when one person upends his plan and his life is destined to change.


Forever to please, Eli follows a comfortable and preordained path but is unaware of the pounding message in his head that says success, happiness, and love follow a narrow path.


Polar opposite, he and Aiden are paired as roommates during their senior year in boarding school. They clash not fully aware of their true selves, yet their friendship unfolds in ways neither had ever before experienced. Caught off guard, their relationship deepens but like a gut punch, a promise Aiden made to himself changes everything. 


Years later, fraught with regret, denial, and his restless spirit, Eli treks to the secret location that he and Aiden once shared to search for his peace. Will he find his answers? 


A poignant coming-of-age story of friendship, living in the moment, and love is a poetic mosaic of joy, heartbreak, self-reflection but most of all, utter bliss.

Praise for Cutting of Harp Strings


“… a compelling and engagingly written story of friendship, the word used to describe a long, slow process of enlightenment as well as a term applicable to the process of healing and learning to make sense of life. Spanning twenty-five years, and centered around a secluded spot of inspiration, Cutting of Harp Strings is a strongly recommended and emotionally moving saga.”

— James A. Cox, editor-in-chief, Midwest Book Review.


In Cutting of Harp Strings, E.G. Kardos continues to show a creative imagination, a wicked sense of humor and a depth of characterization.

— Jay Strafford, retired books editor, Richmond Times-Dispatch.
