Evy Journey, SPR (Self Publishing Review) Independent Woman Author awardee, writes Women’s Fiction, an amorphous category of stories written mostly for women, from a women’s point of view, as varied as that is. They can be romance, chick lit, or literary.
Evy has a Ph.D. in psychology so her particular brand of women’s fiction spins tales about well-drawn characters as they cope with the problems and issues of contemporary life. These stories explore the many faces of love, loss , second chances, and finding one’s way. Often, they’re laced with a twist of mystery or intrigue.
She’s also a wannabe artist, and a flâneuse who wishes she lives in Paris where art is everywhere and people have honed aimless roaming to an art form. She has lived in Paris a few times as a transient.
An interview with Evy Journey in September, 2015 at Olio by Marilyn.
