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 EC Stilson’s memoir, Two More Years, detailing her battle with cancer, its affect on her life and that of her family and friends, to release in the spring/summer of 2022.

He said the dreaded words, “I give you two years to live,” and my heart froze in time.

I have four young kids. To not see them grow up, start their careers, get married… those thoughts seemed unfathomable. “I’m only in my 30s. You can fix this. Can’t you?” I’d made so many plans.

“No. I’m sorry, Elisa. We can’t.”

My breath evaded me, like I already needed the ventilator—the damn life support. I wouldn’t die in a car crash or some freak accident. Nope. I knew what would kill me; I just didn’t know when it would happen.

The night I met Mike, an infamous bachelor, I couldn’t imagine that years later I’d be battling for my life as he helped raise my four children. Yet, there we were. It was slow at first, but my view on life reverted to something it had been years before. It wasn’t until I started modeling in hospital gowns, fiddling for terminal patients, and taking my kids on outlandish adventures that I discovered how to truly live again. But, despite handling so much with grace and trying to build a legacy for my family, could that reconcile the most devastating of diagnoses?

Watch for the newly revised second edition of the crime thriller, THE MAN, to release in the fall of 2021.

He thought he was free to leave his old life behind, but The Man receives a clear message that his old “friends” have found him and will do anything to get revenge—even kidnap his daughter or murder his wife.

He left it all behind, tied it up “neat and clean”—or at least he thought he had—but The Man’s family is torn apart by a violent past that has finally caught up to him. Someone has decoded what went wrong ten years ago, and they seek retribution of the worst kind.

EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a Mob story with more twists and turns than a Coney Island rollercoaster, taking us deep inside the workings of a New York family, two generations of cold killers who seek vengeance on anyone who crosses them—even if it takes a lifetime.
