Author Biography

Kipjo K. Ewers was born on July 1, 1975. At an early age, he had an active imagination. By the time he started kindergarten, he would make up fictitious stories, one of his favorites was about a character named “Old Man Norris,” who hated everyone in the world except for him.

When he attended our Lady of Victory Elementary School in Mount Vernon, he continued writing and reading stories to his classmates. His teacher, Mrs. Green, told him the children would laugh, but she would remind them that some of the great stories they read came about were written.

After elementary school, he went to Salesian High School in New Rochelle, NY, then on to Iona College.

He would work for several major firms and companies within the New York area, but his passion was to become a journalist/writer.

Therefore, it is not surprising he decided to write his first book/novel.

Kipjo began working and creating a new superhuman universe, finding inspiration and solace in losing his first daughter due to an unfortunate miscarriage that devastated both his loving wife and him; he began writing a hero origin story now titled “The First.”

After publishing “The First” in 2013, Kipjo wrote two more follow-up novels to the series, a spin-off novel titled the Eye of Ra and a romantic supernature novel titled “Fred & Mary.”

Now known as the EVO Universe, Kipjo continues to write to expand the series and create new projects for the foreseeable future.

Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite

Eye of Ra by Kipjo Ewers falls into the science fiction and fantasy genre. Eye of Ra follows Laurence Danjuma, a young man whose one wish was to create a better life for himself and his father. Unfortunately for Laurence Danjuma, fate rarely proves itself to be kind, which leaves Laurence Danjuma a broken man close to death. However, his family’s legacy awakens in his time of need to not only save his life, but to forever alter it. Laurence Danjuma is given an impossible legacy that leads him down roads that risk not only his own life, but the lives of many others.

Eye of Ra by Kipjo Ewers is a well written book. The plot line moves at a fast pace for most of the book and the characters are all well written. I particularly liked the way that Kipjo Ewers wrote the dialogue between characters - it always read like an actual conversation in that it flowed well and did not seem robotic. I really liked Laurence Danjuma as a main character because he was a regular guy with normal aspirations who was suddenly made into a hero type character. I believe that the way he responded to his legacy and destiny was realistic, and his choice made sense, based on his personality. All in all, I enjoyed reading about Laurence Danjuma in Eye of Ra by Kipjo Ewers.
