Eva Marie Everson was born and reared just outside of Savannah, Georgia. She can quote entirely too many lines from Pretty Woman (You do? You think I’ve got potential?). She is an ex-nurse and a seminary graduate. She lives with her husband, and together they have kids, grandkids, and two absolutely adorable dogs, Hope and Poodar. Eva is the president of Pen in Hand, Inc., and is the executive co-chairman of CWGWW (Christian Writers Guild Word Weavers). You can find out more about here at her website, or follow her on Facebook and Twitter. Also check out her two blogs, 1 Writer, 1 Day and Southern Voice.

A couple of things about the picture:
You can barely see the “bookcase,” but that is a pie safe from my great-grandmother Collins’ home. That home inspired the book Things Left Unspoken. Another “bookcase” is the pie safe from my grandmother’s kitchen (unseen in this photo).
The blue and throw over the back of my chair is from my hometown, Sylvania, Georgia, and depicts several of the historical sites from there.
Hanging to the left of the window are two framed prints. Those are from one of the first CBA conventions (now ICRS) I attended. Honor Books had released two recently discovered manuscripts by Louisa May Alcott. To promote, they gave away prints of the book covers. Somehow I ended up with mine and one given to someone else, who gave it to me. I had them framed . . . a reminder always to do good work (you never know what someone will uncover after you’re dead).
The cross hanging on the right side is a favorite “little thing” of mine. It was a gift from a young woman I’ve mentored and watched grow over the years. The gift was her way of saying “thank you” and, for me, another reminder of why I do what I do. That cross represents both the what and the who: what saved me and who saved me. Without it and Him, I’m nothing.
Eva is giving away a copy of her book Things Left Unspoken. You have until next Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. to enter the giveaway! Only those in the continental U.S. are eligible to win.
Such a cute writing area!

I’m embarrassed to say, this city gal had to Google “pie safe.” 🙂
I do so much reading for my kids (which I love), but it would be great to actually read a fiction book for myself–it’s been a long time! Rebeccamaltman@gmail.com
amazing ideas 🙂
Would love to win and read the book. God grant you special blessings.
