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
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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Read !!!!, May 2, 2011

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 !!!!


Shinningbal, TX is more than a small town. It is the city of unforgivable actions.

Review by: M T Mathieson on July 23, 2012 :
I must admit to being a little uncomfortable with this story initially. Can murder ever be justified? However, as the nature of the town in which the story is set was gradually revealed, it became apparent that there was no other way.

This is a well-paced story with enough action to maintain interest while at the same time providing enough background and character detail to enable the reader to relate on an emotional level. I liked the character of Roman so much that I'm hoping for a sequel so that I can meet him again.

Another good read from Ey Wade.

Review by: Nicole Storey on June 20, 2012 :
Life Demands Action. Yes, it certainly does. When the legal system fails a town of children who are being preyed on by pedophiles, a few citizens (one in particular) decide to take matters into their own hands.

I won’t say that this is a “feel-good” book – it isn’t, but Ey Wade manages to capture the wide range of emotions that come to surface when people cannot depend on “the powers that be” to do the right thing. Rage, denial, guilt, sadness, hopelessness…you will find it all in this small, Texas town.

I found myself being able to relate to different characters in this book – and some characters I wanted to throttle with my own hands. One character who surprised me was Vivian. As a mother myself, I found it hard to believe that another mother would handle herself the way she did after she found out such devastating news. Also, Vivian’s parents did not react in a way my own parents would have. Let’s put it this way, if anyone were to ever touch my children in a harmful way, I would kill them. If I didn’t get to them first, my father would.

I enjoyed this book. Durham was my favorite character. He was like an onion with many layers that kept being revealed. I love it when a character has depth. I love it when you think you know a character and you end up not knowing them at all! There were many surprising twists in the story. The sad part about it is that it’s totally believable and has happened many times. I’m so glad Ey Wade’s book sheds some light on this very serious topic.

A true page turner showing the need for justice and the prevention of crimes. While Durham and Penny's methods in seeing justice through aren't legal their motives are understandable. Wade created a strong and rivoting read full of thick plot lines and solid characters.- Author of Sarah's Secret

Review by: AE Publications on June 28, 2011 :
A cleverly spun tale of retribution featuring a well-rounded cast of characters. It's clear the author has done extensive research on the subject of child abuse and is truly trying to make a difference with this book. I wish the nefarious nature of the town were explained a bit more but overall there was a nice balance of dialogue and exposition. A solid read, well-written and engaging.
