I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember … journals, poems, songs, and short stories. I’d always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason I could never see them through to the end.
Until Eva came along.
I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which strangely, I never gave a lot of consideration to. Then I became a mother and when my youngest son was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night, as I often did. But this night I was gripped by a heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me and eventually Eva was born. “Leaving Eva” began as a story of a girl who was ruthlessly abandoned, until her story took on a life of its own.
I’ve always been a late bloomer, but I am happy that I’ve finally gotten in touch with my inner author. She’s always been there lying dormant, reflecting in other parts of my life but now she is awake and alive, shining through me everyday.
Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me throughout my life and I feel fortunate to channel my energy and creativity in this way. With two books in the Eva series and a standalone novel, I Run to You, I am currently working on a fantasy series, The Lost Children. The first book, The Forgotten, is planned for an early 2016 release.,
I’m am so excited to be joining Evatopia Press and will be publishing current and future works with them. I am grateful every day for the life I get to live and for all of the love and support from friends, family, and readers.
