It is my privilege to welcome Eva Marie Everson, multi-award winning, best-selling author of both fiction and non-fiction, back to 3 Questions Wednesday. If you like books where you care deeply about the characters, you’ll love hers. Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win her latest, God Bless Us Every One.
So how did she answer our 3 questions? Let’s find out–
Hello, Eva! What books have fortified you as a writer? How?
Eva: The first book I read when I decided I might want to know what I was doing!!! was “Writing the Blockbuster Novel” by Albert Zuckerman. I have to say … that one book taught me so much! About two years ago I bought Robert Benson’s “Dancing on the Head of a Pen.” I was so blown away by it, about the honesty behind it and the practical writing tips within, that I asked him to be the keynote speaker at Florida Christian Writers Conference during the 2016 conference. He totally blew everyone out of the water! I’m also a sucker for anything written by James Scott Bell. That man simply knows his business!
I loved “Dancing on the Head of a Pen” also. Had to read it back to back. Now tell us…
What secret talents do you have?
Eva: LOL … I can pick up pretty much anything with my toes! I’m double-jointed in my elbows … and (more seriously) I studied choreography for years. I’m actually pretty good at it!
That’s an interesting talent. 🙂 Last question:
If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
Eva: Take out! I don’t cook … Actually, my husband cooks …very well. So, whatever he wants to prepare! But he makes these chicken wings that are to DIE for! First he fries them, then he smothers them in this barbecue sauce my good-ole-southern-boy brother gets for us (some secret recipe!) and bakes them. I could eat them until my heartburn kills me! 🙂
My husband cooks well also. They could trade recipes…
Eva Marie is going to bless someone with a print copy of “God Bless Us Every One”. Leave a comment to be entered…
