About Ey Wade

Knowing me as a writer and author is like cracking an egg’s shell in the air and wondering how far the splatter will spread. Wait, that’s kind of like knowing me as a person. I’m like all over the board and always working on three to five projects at a time. I have no favorite spots to work and my view tends to be pointed at the keyboard. When an idea comes into my head I just flow with it. I haven’t been able to conform my writing to any specific pattern. I am more than often working on one story and the characters from another will just be dying to get my attention and I have to go into their world.

I tend to write in various genres from fiction to picture books. Using pen (same one for the past eleven years) and paper, laptop and as a newly favorite the word program on my cell phone. I have found I can write anywhere with that little contraption and my focus is intent. Has to be with those tiny keys, right? And then I just email to myself and copy past into my manuscript.

Before becoming a self-published author I followed the rules. Wrote outlines, character back stories, did the word counting, queries and everything. I even had an agent once. Unfortunately he was a horrible choice. Directed me away from Ballantine books (wish I would have known who they were then) who wanted The Perfect Solution and straight into the corrupt hands of Publish America. What a crock. After that fiasco I was so humiliated I couldn’t write. Fought and had my rights returned and now, I am back. I tried the querying again, but became frustrated when it seems the agents’ rules are so varied, too confusing for me. Not to mention the rejection letters can be soul crushing. I received a lot of positive reviews for The Perfect Solution when it was first published and yet when I began querying one agent informed me no one would like the book and yet it deals with negligence in the child care system. So, off I ran on my own. I have recently put three novels, three picture books and a creative non-fiction book into the Amazon and Smashwords systems. I think e-publishing is one of the greatest inventions God has given to the world. I would advise any author to go that route when they have something they feel strongly about.
I have worked in the childcare profession for over thirty years, and was bound to Sam. I us those experiences to write novels which have gained the attention of parents, parents-to-be, child care professionals and discerning readers.

I thinks of myself as a caged in frustrated author of thought provoking, mind bending ebooks, an occasional step-in parent, a fountain of knowledge, and ready to share.

As a writer I have had an essay in Essence magazine, several articles printed in the local paper and magazines.

Oh, and to let you know I do have a stable life….I am the (always single) mother of three daughters who are all grown now. I home schooled them on a string and a prayer. Though it may seem as if I am a bit scattered brained I was able to school them into college by the age of seventeen and sixteen. The two eldest have graduated, yeah! I am the drooling proud ‘Lovey’ of a baby boy named Jett Parker Ellington and that’s me and my writing life in a nutshell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for History buffs!, June 8, 2011
By
bookmom -This review is from: Beads On a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History (Kindle Edition)

Beads on a String is an approachable, conversational, and interactive history of diversity in America. Instead of a melting pot, Ey Wade envisions the country as a piece of jewelry where the contributions of all of the people who have immigrated here from all over the world add to the beauty of our society. It honors all of the peoples that contributed to this country in a nicely balanced way. Designed as a resource for students it suits the classroom or homeschool classroom but also is an enjoyable read for armchair historians and fans of the History Channel. It's a must read for history lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read In So Many Ways, June 2, 2011

Jonathan Ellis "This works." (New York, New York)
This review is from: Beads On a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History (Kindle Edition)
I just finished Beads on A String and in all sincerity I have to say it is a work of subtle genius. Several years back I read one of the most unusual history books ever written, "The Peoples' History of the United States." Anyone who has read that revelation of history as events that really happened, as opposed to events as reported by those who were left holding the most power, will see a similar sort of understanding in this amazing work by Ey Wade. An alternative title for her work could well be, "A History of the People of the United States. I can give this work no higher compliment.

I was consistently fascinated by unexpected connections, accomplishments and contributions being added to the ongoing tapestry of our country by so many people from so many ethnic and cultural backgrounds, that I simply couldn't put the book down. If I could ask for anything more, it would literally be just that...more.

This is the story of the heroes of our collective past. What is incredibly moving is that so many of these heroes have gone unsung for so long.

I can gladly recommend this book to anyone interested in the historical journey of the land we live in. Beyond that, I can just as easily recommend it to anyone who just likes a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Solution -Isn't!, February 8, 2011
By
Patricia Hardy "patticake 545" (New Orleans,LA USA)

This review is from: The Perfect Solution-A suspense of choices (Kindle Edition)
The story dealing with the abduction of a pre-K student from a day care center shows the necessity for more stringent safety measures to be applied to all day care centers. The characters are sympathetically protrayed and you do feel concern for their perdicament, but you just wanted to shake the people who ran the day care center and ask "What were you thinking"
I would recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a well-paced suspense story.

This review is from: THE FISHING TRIP-A TRIAL BY WATER, EXECUTION AND A DELIVERANCE OF RETRIBUTION (Kindle Edition)
Ms Wade, has shown the mastery that she truly has in the writing, construction, and execution of this book. It tells of how once you are something, no matter how well you try to mask yourself, the truth will ALWAYS rear its ugly head.
The jumping back and forth works perfectly, as does all of the situations Ms Wade has created.
I would highly recomend this book as a must read.
I was unable to put it down, and felt a part of the story imbedding itself into me.
100% perfect !!!!

Review by: Kathleen Dove on Jan. 12, 2013 :
Another lovely pen and ink story by Ey Wade. I thoroughly enjoyed this multi-purpose story and have added it to the collection of stories for my grandson. It's perfect for a wide age range of young children. It introduces basic science concepts while cleverly teaching a life-lesson as told by a loving mum. The perfect book to read with your young ones right before an eclipse.

Review by: Ed Drury on Jan. 02, 2013 :
This wonderful little book, which is beautifully illustrated by the author, provides a wonderful metaphor for solar eclipses. It presents a way to open discussions about and investigations into the solar system, folklore and the technique of metaphor in understanding complex ideas.

It is a story which a child will remember perhaps all their lives and infuses a wonder into their earliest attempt to understand the solar system. Even when they learn more about the solar system, this tale will come back to them. They will learn at some point that solar eclipses are more frequent than once a year, for example, but that is only another teachable moment when children learn about the bigger world out there, the solar system and universe. What Ey Wade has provided is an early starting point for young children to become curious about science and the mysteries of nature. It gives parents a wonderfully entertaining way to spark a life time of shared memories of these images and metaphors. Even an old person like myself can fall in love with this naive desire to "hug the sun" because, well everyone needs a hug sometimes.

Simply wonderful and charming.

Review by: L Publishing on Aug. 22, 2012 :
The picture story eBook “Who will Hug the Sun” by Ey Wade is a great learning tool eBook -- to teach your child not only to read – but teaches a young child about the sun and the moon and how once a year a solar eclipse occurs -- it is written in a manner a child can understand -- and is a great learning story any child would love to hear their parents read to them -- and/or read themselves.

Your child will be asking you when will the moon hug the sun next, and you will have to write in your calendar when it will be – so you can schedule to allow your child the experience of seeing a solar eclipse happen.

Reminder -- when observing a solar eclipse – one should not look directly to it -- but be using special solar eclipse glasses -- be prepared for the next solar eclipse.

Unique,sweet and adorable - we thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't wait to pick up more as school is out, and we are looking for good books. And although we love ALL books in our home, its truly special to see "ourselves" and all different colors of the rainbow as we explore..

Review by: Harri Romney on Jan. 16, 2012 :
This is a beautiful short children's story. Very cleverly written, with a wonderfully moving story line. My children loved this story when I read it. It also included a very clever little method of explaining to children what happens during an eclipse (making a difficult concept understandable for them).
