Hi, I'm Evelyn, and I'm preoccupied with cults, unsolved murders, Elizabethan pirates and bad jokes. 


Lately I've been experimenting with the use of Wattpad for non-fiction, true crime stories. Currently, this takes the form of THE BODY IN THE TREE - a 75 year old murder mystery I have been given the opportunity to investigate in detail.

THE HAND OF FATE is my entry for this year's Open Novella Contest and continues the story of Anna Loveridge (you know, the one I won that thing for?)

If cults are you thing, then I do a lot of writing about the biggest of them all (no, not THAT one. I can't afford the legal fees). DOWN 918 RABBIT HOLES is a study on the Peoples Temple and the 1978 Jonestown Massacre and my messy attempts to write fiction about it.
