SPR (Self Publishing Review) gave Evy Journey the 2015 Independent Woman Author bronze award for her writing. Evy has always been fascinated with words and seduced by beautiful prose. She loves Jane Austen and invokes her spirit every time she spins tales of love, loss, and finding one’s way–stories she interweaves with mystery or intrigue and sets in various locales.
She’s lived and traveled in many places, from Asia to Europe. Often she’s ended up in Paris, though—her favorite place in the world. She’s an observer-wanderer. A flâneuse, as the French would say. You can find her musings on Paris and her adventures on food at http://eveonalimb.com.
The mind is what fascinates her most. Armed with a Ph.D., she researched and helped develop mental health programs. And wrote like an academic. Not a good thing if you want to sound like a normal person. So, she’s written fiction (mostly happy fiction) as an antidote.
