About this author

Eve’s writing began with a toy typewriter she received at age four. Much later, she wrote poems for school publications and work related newsletters until landing a job writing ad copy and selling advertising space for major metropolitan and community newspapers. Recently, she published her first novel Penniless Hearts which is part adventure, part romance but mostly a gentle reminder to communicate with our loved ones. Eve has published poems, fiction and non-fiction in various anthologies some of which are: Anything Prose and Poetry Too, Open Doors-Fractured Fairy Tales, and Not Your Mother’s Book on Dogs and Travel. When not writing she likes swimming, reading and walking her naughty Chihuahuas.

In The Trenches by Krista Clark Grabowski
"This anthology has deep and powerful tales, poetic words that put you right in the moment. I feel very privilege to be in this anthology with so many writers out in the field with camouflaged words that tell their moments "In The Trenches."
