Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.

Eva cannot remember a time when she couldn’t read, and has spent her life devouring books. In her early childhood years, she read and re-read The Boxcar Children, The Trumpet of the Swan, anything by Johanna Spyri or A A Milne, and any issues of National Geographic with illustrated articles about mummified, skeletonised, and otherwise no-longer-viable people.

As a teenager she was a huge fan of Louisa May Alcott and Jane Eyre.

Eva Reads About James Madison

I only read one book about James Madison. There were a few to choose from, but I opted for the longest one I could find.



The Three Lives of James Madison Noah Feldman


It took me a really, really long time to get through all 34 hours of this. I found it a bit lacking in the department of describing Madison’s early life (maybe there just wasn’t more to say? I really don’t know…) Anyway, it

The Vanderbeekers Lost and Found by Karina Yan Glaser
"I LOVED this book! It made me cry at least three times from sad things but also deeply human things that become a bond between characters. This 141st street tribe has come a long way, and I love the found family that they are. It reminds me of the Fa" Read more of this review »

“Avie, you canna buy or bargain for anyone’s love. Love is a gift, and if you have to give something to someone to get it, it’s no love anymore.”
Eva Seyler, The War in Our Hearts

“Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work he is supposed to be doing at the moment. ”
Robert Benchley

“She had met the man who was now her husband. He was seven foot three, and she was six foot two and a quarter. It was a match made perhaps not in heaven but certainly nearer the ceiling.”
Jasper Fforde, The Fourth Bear

“And this, even more wonderful and mysterious, is also true: when I read it, when I read what Julie's written, she is instantly alive again, whole and undamaged. With her words in my mind while I'm reading, she is as real as I am. Gloriously daft, drop-dead charming, full of bookish nonsense and foul language, brave and generous. She's right here. Afraid and exhausted, alone, but fighting. Flying in silver moonlight in a plane that can't be landed, stuck in the climb - alive, alive, ALIVE.”
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity

“Mr Cripp's last words were 'Good heavens! It's full of holes!' said Mary. 'Do you have any idea to what he was referring?'
'Most puzzling,' confessed the Vicar. 'He might have been referring to anything - the greenhouse, his cucumber, the plot - anything.'
'The plot?' echoed Mary.
'I mean the vegetable plot,' he said hurriedly.”
Jasper Fforde, The Fourth Bear

“Maddie quickly pulled down the blackout curtains over her bright and vulnerable soul.”
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity
