Yvonne Eve Walus
Doctor of Mathematics. A wife and a mother. Most of all though - a writer (in several languages), and for this writer, a true friend.
Yvonne lives in New Zealand...which puts her at a great disadvantage right off the bat even in this Internet age. But that doesn't stop her from having a successful writing career. From poetry, to short stories about dragons, to her wildly popular novel, Murder @ Work, this versatile author is well-respected by her readers and her peers.
Is there anything Yvonne Eve Walus can't accomplished? Not in my book! When she was told that my young reader series, Cynthia's Attic, wasn't available to libraries in New Zealand, she fired off an e-mail to me. Between Yvonne and my publisher, Karen Syed, "The Missing Locket" and "The Magic Medallion" are on their way to Yvonne's library. Most of us would've just shrugged and said, "Oh well. I tried." But she wouldn't take "NO" for an answer.
And herein lies the reason her books and short stories are such great sellers in this competitive business. She simply crashes through any and all stumbling blocks. We can all take a page from Ms. Walus's book.
Looking for a great mystery? Look no further.
