About this author

Eve’s writing started 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 Chihuahua.

"this is one of those books that I was really looking forward to reading -- I gave up about a third of the way through -- and this experience really soured me on her writing"
