Art reflects human nature, with all its idiosyncrasies, imperfections and emotional upheavals. This story gives the reader a taste of how art, in its turn, can affect those who are closest to it. The characters from this book will stay with me for quite some time." ~ AlinasVoice

About the Author
EDITOR: Growing up I was the kid who would get into trouble for reading in class. My family was the one at the restaurant with noses buried in books. It was only natural that I would seek some way to make books a part of my career path. In March of 2014 I graduated from Portland State University with a MS in Technical Writing and Book Publishing. During my program I spent time as Acquisitions Manager and Project Manager with Ooligan Press, a student-run publishing house that is part of the graduate program. Since my graduation, I've started my own small business, taken over ownership of Portland Book Review, and worked as Project Manager at Spectacle Publishing Media Group before arriving here at Evolved Publishing. I read anything except for traditional westerns, and have a soft spot for historical fiction and YA. I tend to gravitate towards genre fiction (particularly science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure and all of the implied subgenres) and am a huge fan of comics and graphic novels. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably playing video games with my friends online. While I enjoy writing my own fiction on occasion, my greatest joy is helping fellow writers achieve their dream of publishing their work. I look forward to working with Evolved Publishing and making those dreams into reality.
