Author Biography

Evy Journey, Writer(Women’s Fiction)/Artist/Flâneuse and 2015 SPR (Self Publishing Review) Independent Woman Author bronze awardee, has always been fascinated with words and seduced by beautiful prose. She loves Jane Austen and invokes her spirit every time she spins tales of love, loss, and finding one’s way–stories she interweaves with mystery or intrigue and sets in various locales.

The mind is what fascinates her most. Armed with a Ph.D., she researched and helped develop mental health programs. And wrote like an academic. Not a good thing if you want to sound like a normal person. So, she’s written fiction (mostly happy fiction) as an antidote.

Hello, My Love: A Modern Love Story by Evy Journey is Book One in the Between Two Worlds series, a well-written romance that is character-driven and uncharacteristically gripping. Elise Halverson may appear to be a serious, intelligent, and career oriented kind of woman. Yes, this beautiful and intelligent girl has a future she’s looking forward to. Not even the handsome and most eligible bachelor, playboy Greg Thorpe, can cause her a moment’s distraction. That is just what she appears to be or to think.

But when Greg starts appearing frequently at the dinner parties her parents throw, they begin to bump into each other and, in spite of her discipline and strength of character, Elise Halverson finds herself irrevocably drawn to this man and her protective shell starts cracking. It is on the night before Greg’s wedding that they decide to take their attraction to the next level. For Elise it would just be a “one-night stand” and while Greg might be helpless towards a woman who’s intrigued him all this while, this one night will trigger a chain reaction with painful repercussions. Can the two really belong to each other? What happens to Greg’s fiancée?

There is a lot to look forward to in this romance slash mystery story. First off, I am not a keen fan of romance, except this one is so well crafted in the style of Nicholas Sparks. Readers will enjoy the unpredictability of the plot, the twists, and the depth of character. How does a man react to a complicated love triangle? One of the things Evy Journey does so well is that she explores the depth of human emotion and psychology, and it will be interesting to see how the characters evolve through the conflict. Hello, My Love: Between Two Worlds Book 1 is intense, with tight writing in a fast-paced and engaging romance.
