S. Usher Evans

Biography

S. Usher Evans is an author, blogger, and witty banter aficionado. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she left the sleepy town behind for the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.. There, she somehow landed jobs with BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Television before finally settling into a “real job” as an IT consultant. After a quarter life crisis at age 27, she decided consulting was for the birds and rekindled a childhood passion for writing novels. She sold everything she owned and moved back to Pensacola, where she currently resides with her two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit.

Evans is the author of the Razia series and Empath, both published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing.

Last night's dinner, a candle, flashlight, half an empty wallet, speakers, headphones, and my phone. Otherwise known as a big ol' giant mess.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a suburban town in NW Florida where everybody knew everybody. It actually influenced my writing because I didn't have a lot of friends, so I made my own.
