Eva Silverfine left New York City at the age of seventeen and arrived in semi-rural Texas at thirty-eight. Between those two points she lived in five other states, earned a BS in Environmental Conservation, an MS in Ecology, worked in a research lab, and combined her background in science with her interest in writing to become a copy editor. In Texas she has raised two sons, freelanced for a variety of academic presses, and continued writing memoir and fiction in the in-between spaces.
