Evy Journey has always been fascinated with words and seduced by beautiful prose. She’s a Jane Austen enthusiast, a wannabe artist, and a flâneuse (a roving female observer).

She has traveled to Asia and Europe, though she often ends up in Paris to stay for a few months. In her travels, she watches, listens, and reflects. Then, fortified with tea and macarons, she writes.

She’s a realist, but also a sucker for happy endings. She sees enough in real life to depress her, but seeks no catharsis by writing about it. Writing fiction is escape, entertainment. Still, biases endure and carry over as material. So her fiction crosses genres—contemporary, literary, a touch of mystery; but always, there’s love in its many facets at the core of it.

In a past life, she researched, evaluated, and developed mental health programs (she has a Ph.D., University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana). She also paints in oils, acrylics, pastels, and digitally, on her iPad.
