Imelda Evans

As a child, I was taught that books were my friends, words were wonderful and stories were what made the world go around - or at least helped you understand it!

Not surprisingly, I have been working with words ever since. I got a degree in English literature, became a storyteller (in the oral tradition), learnt how to edit, then how to write copy, then finally came home to writing novels.

They say you should write what you know, so I write stories about women: about their ups and downs, the men they get mixed up with, the trouble they get into and getting out again with a little help from their friends.

When I'm not writing, I'm a wife, a mum, a volunteer, a reader, a storyteller, a baker, a maker of cocktails, a frequenter of hammocks and an enthusiastic talker - among other things!

You can find me in all the places listed below and I'd love to see you there. Thanks for your interest in me and my work.
