About this author

Ilsa Evans is an Australian author. She has written across several genres from light fiction (such as the books that make up the 'laundry series') to more gritty social realism. Two of her books, Broken and Sticks and Stones stem from the findings of a PhD on the long-term effects of family violence that Ilsa completed in 2005. Ilsa teaches creative writing and carries out public speaking when she is not writing. She lives in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne with her children, assorted pets and several uninvited possums.


I can't believe that it's been over two months since I last posted on this blog - but then I also can't believe that we're halfway through the year already (July? Seriously?

Because I'm your mother (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 13, 2012 02:30AM
Description: 'Because I'm your mother' is an extract from the ebook 'Ones a poner time' - an entertaining cocktail of short stories born from half a century (and counting) of memories and musings. Two parts comedy and one part drama, with just a dollop of farce (just like life!), this book is best enjoyed while curled up on the couch with a box of chocolates.

" I cannot begin to talk about this book without diluting its impact on other readers.

All I will say, is try not to finish it at bed-time, like I just did - sleep is chased away. "
