evecontesketchcrpEvy Journey, Writer(Women’s Fiction)/Artist/Flâneuse and 2015 SPR (Self Publishing Review) Independent Woman Author bronze awardee, has always played with words. Beautiful prose seduces her. She loves Jane Austen and invokes her spirit every time she spins tales of love, loss, and finding one’s way—stories into which she weaves mystery or intrigue. Then, she sets them in various locales.

Because the mind is what fascinates her most, she went for a Ph.D. Then, she researched and shepherded the development of mental health programs. And wrote like an academic, which may not be a good thing if you want to sound like a normal person. So, she’s written fiction (mostly happy fiction) as an antidote.

A Quirk or Two:

  • I took swimming lessons but never really learned to swim―rather pathetic for one who’s basically an island girl. So I did folk dancing and hula until work and motherhood stopped me.
  • I’m hopelessly in love with Paris, and yes, sometimes I wish I lived there.
  • I’m an anachronism. I love classical music and opera, and for the last ten years at least, I haven’t watched television. But I love movies. They’re my nightly entertainment. I like films by Lars Von Trier, Ang Lee, Francis Ford Coppola, Terence Malick, and Alejandro Inarritu.
