Erin Evans

Biography

Erin Evans is a stay-at-home mom of eight (!), wonderful, little children. When she's not chasing after children, changing diapers, teaching school, cooking, chauffeuring, or potty training, she is writing, playing drums at her church or crashed out dead asleep.

In urban fantasy, she loves Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, and Kim Harrison. All time favorite authors would be Robin Hobb and Jasper Fforde. Jim Butcher's Codex Alera has become one of her favorite series.

BOOKS:

- In her first series, "The Rhine Maiden", Erin based her character Piper Cavanaugh on her own life, but decided to have pity on Piper and only gave her two kids to start off with.

- Erin's latest work, the "Pernicious Princess Trilogy" is a take on twisted fairy tales.

- Her other works include "Food For Love", a foodie romantic comedy with a twist.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was homeschooled up until college by my mother, the author of the Kathy Duffy Top 100 "Learning Language Arts Through Literature." My siblings and I were the guinea pigs for this curriculum, which combines literature and writing skills. We were encouraged to write a short novel each year, and my kids still enjoy seeing my early works!
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing around 2007, I believe. I was a stay-at-home mom of 2, and the thought hit me, "How great it would be to have the super power of voice control!" I'm sure all other moms can relate!
