Ever since I embarked on a writing career shortly after I retired from teaching, I’ve been winging it in my attempt to rise above the ashes of obscurity and gain readership. A published author who prefers to compose novels in the genre of Contemporary Women’s Fiction, I’ve spread my write wings across a span of wide latitude.
You’re cordially invited to take in an aerial view of my diversity by landing on my page at Authors Den: http://www.authorsden.com/evapasco
A newly published author in 2008, I prioritized increasing my visibility, while adding to my credibility, by binge-writing. Having grown up during the Sixties, I drew upon those experiences to write my first memoir, “A Mini Tribute to Twiggy,” and submitted it for publication at The Sixties Official Site. When the webmaster graciously invited me to write more, and offered to set up my own page there, I eagerly accepted and turned out a memoir every week for approximately two years, contributing 100 in total. Give or take a few—edited, revised, and organized according to my logic of progression, I incorporated these memoirs into a collection, 100 Wild Mushrooms: Memoirs of the ‘60s (2017).
During that same juncture in time, I took the Sixties under my wing even further by writing and publishing 30 “Retro 60s Flashbacks,” encompassing a variety of topics: sitcom moms and dads; plastic flamingos, trolls; Mary Poppins; westerns; cartoons; bikinis; extinct jobs; airline attendants…
Circling within my native state of Rhode Island, the signature setting for my novels, I write winged 40 essays, each prefaced with “Rhode Read,” commemorating various historic landmarks, geographic locations, or regional icons: Coffee milk; Del’s Lemonade; Haven Brothers Mobile Diner; clams casino; WaterFire; Slater Mill; Tennis Hall of Fame; Big Nazo puppets…
My write wings recently flew me over the rainbow when I composed the novella, “Mr. Wizardo,” for a co-authored anthology of reimagined fairy tales, Once Upon a Fabulous Time (2017):
(Baxter Springs, Kansas) – A twist of fate! Ten years after graduating from Franklin High, four troubled individuals indebted to their guidance counselor, Oscar Wizardo, wend their way back home to attend his funeral. Grappling with their demons, dilemmas, and despair—Doreen Gale, Scott Crowe, Lyle Forrest, and Tim Woodman follow that figurative yellow brick road, walking a fine line between realism and magic. Discover what destiny holds in store for each of them.
Still flapping my write wings to soar above the clouds, I publish a weekly blog pertaining to my life as an Indie, each week without fail—Eva’s Bytes. I continue to write the occasional modern-day memoir about daily occurrences worth preserving.
No matter what our pursuit or pleasure—may each of us fly like an eagle, carried afar by an indomitable spirit.
