Felice Zaslow

Felice Zaslow is a retired teacher, artist and author residing in Long Island, New York. She is the mother of two adult sons and grandmother of three.

Felice has an appreciation of the natural beauty of the Long Island beaches and the changing of the seasons since childhood. She incorporates this into her painting and writing.

The loss of her husband Ira inspired Felice to write her first book, FROM HERE: Lessons In Love & Loss From 9/11. She believes that her story is as relevant in today's world as it was in 2001 and her wish is to bring hope and comfort to others who have experienced tragic loss.

From Here: Lessons In Love & Loss From 9/11

Felice and Ira Zaslow's love story spanned almost four decades, from the beaches of Far Rockaway to a comfortable suburban existence on the south shore of Long Island. She taught sixth grade at the local middle school, while he commuted daily to Lehman Brothers in the World Trade Center. As their sons grew up, they appreciated each day, looking forward to more time as a couple.

Then came the morning of September 11, 2001.

Through the days, weeks and months that followed, Felice had to find her way through unfathomable trauma, on a path she had to forge herself, seeking guidance and role models along the way. This remarkable and inspiring memoir puts a very personal face on a national tragedy, facing down the darkness by looking for the light that is always present.
