Who Is Elliot Kingsley? Thelma Riley’s Story

Elliot Kingsley was the son of William and Louise Kingsley, born August 19, 2071 in New York City. After his mother’s death in a car accident when he was two years old, Elliot was left in the care of his father and his new wife, who were unable to have children of their own. Elliot did not know that Louise had left her husband and young son until after her death. This put an additional strain on Elliot’s relationship with his father over time. He continued to live with his father until he went off to college at age 18 in 2088.

Early life

Elliot Kingsley was born in the United States, the youngest son of a wealthy family with ties to banking, publishing and the arts. Elliot always showed an interest in writing, though he never pursued it as a career. He married his college sweetheart and they had two sons.
When Elliot reached 30 years of age his wife left him for another man and took their children with her. Overwhelmed by heartbreak and betrayal, Elliot turned to alcohol to numb his pain. The downward spiral culminated in Elliot hitting rock bottom one night when he drunkenly crashed his car into a tree outside of town – nearly killing himself in the process.

Breakthrough moment

Elliot Kingsley was born in 1961. His mother was an alcoholic and he was raised by his grandmother, who also had a drinking problem.

After her death, Kingsley had anger problems.
One time, at the age of 12, he threw some rocks into a window after seeing that his stepfather had been beating up his mother again. He got kicked out of school for starting fights with students who bullied him. In 1982, at the age of 21, Kingsley got married and fathered three children with two different women before finally finding love again at 34-years-old with his current wife LaDonna Kingery-Kingsley
