Short biography
Eleanor Cooney grew up in Connecticut with her writer mother Mary Durant, a progressive woman whose circle of friends included artists and writers, and who, as Cooney recalled on her home page, was "a cool person, certainly sexually liberated, very hip." Coming of age in the 1960s, Cooney attended art school in Boston, but did not finish, instead going west to Boulder, Colorado, where she led a "hand-to-mouth, cash 'n' carry, hedonistic artist-type life, taking peyote in the mountains and running around irresponsibly. It was fun though, let me tell you."
