Jo Sisk-Purvis is an eclectic, enthusiastic, jump-in-feet-first creator, which means “scattered,” but sounds more impressive. Her STEM-rich childhood led to a sensible three degrees in flute performance, with sides of composition, piano, and conducting. Jo has been a storyteller since she first learned that “Quack Quack knows that he’s in luck, for he’s a very special duck.” For many years, she told her stories through music, but in 2010 decided that maternity leave was the perfect time to start writing novels (and adopt a puppy), and has been hooked ever since (on writing. Also puppies).

Jo’s short stories have been published in Cricket Magazine, and she is excited to share her “Trekana” series through Evolved Publishing. She teaches music at a wonderful Friends school that not only allows, but encourages, her quirky detours (they call them “diverse talents”). She music-directs for several theatre companies in central North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, three children, and a menagerie of pets from Captain the Cockatiel to her two sheep, Phineas and Ferb.

Ever since he read The Lord of the Rings at age 12, Peter Martuneac has had a passion for storytelling. He began writing his own high fantasy story that same year and carried on writing for the rest of his childhood, but could not find a way to finish the story. The incomplete manuscript found a home on the top shelf of a closet, and there it remains (though he hopes to one day return to that world and see it through to the end).

At 18, he joined the US Marines, and in the deserts of Afghanistan, he finally started and completed a full-length manuscript. He wrote it entirely by hand, in the sunlight by day and in the dim, red glow of a military flashlight by night. He went on to self-publish this manuscript, a zombie fiction story, followed by two sequels and a short story prequel, and is intensely proud of those works.

Peter is now writing for Evolved Publishing, and is excited to be on this new road in his journey as an author.

Peter is married, has two amazing children and a loyal dog (who is a very good boy). Besides writing, he enjoys reading biographies, collecting coins, and getting his heart broken year after year by his favorite sports teams.

Watch for the second and third books in the “Ethan Chase Thriller” series to release in 2022 and 2023:

  • Solomon’s Fortune [Dec 2022]
  • Gold of the Jaguar [Apr 2023]

“You’re dancing with the Devil, Ethan. Did you not think you’d get burned?”

Ethan Chase’s old friend and mentor Mohammed provides Ethan with a clue that sends him on the trail of a priceless treasure that dried the River Jordan and laid low the walls of Jericho: the Ark of the Covenant, along with the lost wealth of King Solomon.

Frankie and Mei once again join Ethan on a globe-trotting adventure that takes them from the deserts of the Middle East, to the streets of Rome, and to dangerous, uninhabited islands. Yet whispers of a race for a legendary relic travel far and reach dark corners of the world, and one billionaire arms dealer is willing to spend her entire fortune to find the Ark… and kill whoever tries to stop her.

22 April 2022: The Evolved Publishing Team welcomes its newest audiobook producer/narrator.

 
As a voiceover artist and former radio host, I’ve spent the past 14 years lending my voice to whatever projects seemed most interesting. Over the past five years, I have increasingly gravitated toward audiobooks, as there’s nothing like bringing a story to life.

I specialize in content targeting young adult, college, and teenage demographics, but I’ve done it all; in addition to fiction, I have provided the voice for biographies, historical nonfiction, and countless textbooks.

When I’m not recording, you can find me on the other side of the audio coin listening to audiobooks and podcasts, watching a documentary, or spending too much time in a record store.

Coming Soon…. The Temptation of Destiny by D.M. Earley, followed by the second book in the “Call of Destiny” series, The Pyres of Destiny.
