About Eileen Vorbach Collins

A Baltimore native, Eileen has a degree in nursing from the University of Maryland and a master’s in pastoral care from Loyola.

After losing her fifteen-year-old daughter Lydia to suicide, Eileen read everything she could find on child loss and grief. Academic, self-help, religious, she read them all. But what she wanted were true stories from people who’d experienced such a loss and found their way back to the world.

She finally decided to write her own and published this book: Love in the Archives, a Patchwork of True Stories About Suicide Loss. You can find more on her website:
