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. Her latest book is a short one called The Fifth Commandment about respecting our parents . When not writing she likes swimm ...more

Also, I make sure to point out that true love is more than sex. Please let me know what you think but if you hate it then private message please. LOL

Kenna McKinnon I've started Penniless Hearts. Am looking forward to getting into it, Eve, it is the kind of romance I really enjoy, though I'm not a reader of romances as a rule. Karen Docter also writes romance that appeals to me.
