Eva Marie Everson

Author Bio:

If you ask Eva Marie Everson what makes her the epitome of “Southern,” she’ll tell you, “Three things. 1) I was born in the low country of Georgia, reared on fried chicken, eating peanuts in an RC Cola, swimming in the creek with my friends while listening to CCR, going to church on Sunday, and thinking the smell of gardenias is the sweetest in the world; 2) my paternal grandparents were tenant farmers while my maternal grandparents were landowners; and 3) one grandmother taught me how to fish and spit chewing tobacco while the other taught me how to sit properly and behave in any social gathering.”

Eva Marie says the best part about being from the South is the core values of its people.

Since 1999, when Eva Marie signed her first contract with Barbour Publishing, she has attempted to and succeeded at entertaining readers with elements of those same values as well as the faith of Southerners. In these 13 years, she has published more than twenty-five books (both fiction and nonfiction), including:
The Potluck Club Series (with Linda Evans Shepherd) 2005-2007
The Potluck Catering Club Series (with Linda Evans Shepherd) 2008-2011
Things Left Unspoken (Baker/Revell, 2009)
This Fine Life (Baker/Revell, 2010)
The Cedar Key Series (Baker/Revell, 2011-2013)
Unconditional (novelization of the movie by the same title) (Broadman & Holman) 2012

Eva Marie is a multiple award-winning author and speaker. She is one of the original five Orlando Word Weaver critique group members, an international and national group made up of critique chapters. She served as the original president from 2000 to 2007 and is now president of Word Weavers International, Inc. Eva Marie has taught at a number of writers conferences nationwide. During the 2010-2011 school year, Eva Marie served as an adjunct professor at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. She describes it as one of the best times she ever had while working. Eva Marie also serves as director of Florida Christian Writers Conference (along with Mark Hancock). She serves on the Executive Board of Directors for SON Film Festival.

In 2002 and 2009, Eva Marie served as a journalist for Israel Ministry of Tourism. Her article series, Falling Into the Bible (Crosswalk, 2002), served as the inspiration for the multiple-award winning Reflections of God’s Holy Land; A Personal Journey Through Israel (Thomas Nelson, 2008), co-written with Israel’s best-selling author, Miriam Feinberg Vamosh.

Born and reared in the low country of Georgia, Eva Marie is a wife, mother, and grandmother. She lives, works, and finds respite in her lakefront home in Florida. She enjoys reading, knitting, traveling, boating, and singing along with country music on the radio. She is pretty much owned by her two dogs, Hope and Poodar.
