About this author

Visual storyteller (illustrator), writer, and historian

Ev enjoys learning about everything and meeting new people. He is the father of two boys, and is married to Dr. Rebecca Stanton, a professor of Education. On a daily basis, his Pembroke Welsh Corgi, named Lucy, herds him around the house and studio.

Ev has worked as a professional musician, theater director, editor, writer, teacher, and illustrator. He holds a Ph.D in Early Modern European and World history from the University of California, Irvine. He has spent a lot of life traveling, living, and studying in the UK and Western Europe. No matter what he is doing or where he is, he compulsively draws and doodles on everything.

“My hope still is to leave the world a bit better than when I got here.”
Jim Henson

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
