All About Eve

Hi, I’m Eve Messenger, avid reader of YA novels. I write them too.

I’m half Japanese but look totally white. Or maybe a better way to phrase that is that I am culturally half-Japanese because my first-generation Japanese mother and white American father adopted me as a newborn.  I speak Japanese, sing Japanese songs, eat Japanese food, and have happy memories of living in Japan.

As a child, I lived in Japan, Taiwan, Virginia, and California. Growing up in different cultures taught me at an early age to have an open mind.  

Books and music keep me sane (mostly). Libraries and nature are my sanctuary.

I live in the California Mojave Desert (also called the High Desert) with my husband and youngest daughter. The High Desert might look like just a bunch of rocks, sand, and Joshua Trees, but there is a lot of magic here.

Writers I admire include (but are not limited to) Sabaa Tahir, Victoria Schwab, A.S. King, Naomi Novik, Shannon Hale, and Maggie Stiefvater. I met Victoria Schwab twice at book signings and was a total nervous fan girl both times. In one of my books, Victoria wrote: “I can’t wait to read what you have in store.” Someday, Victoria. Someday.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and English, and I’ve published one poem.

My day job is piano teacher. I used to be in bands and stuff. I’m also an ASCAP songwriter.

Now for some numbers: one husband, two kids, three step-kids, two cats, one dog, and four goats. . . well, sort of four goats. They’re my neighbor’s, but I am their goat godmother.

Happy reading!

  3. Hey there Eve! Just clicking around the blogosphere and commenting on blogs that I think are fun and interesting, and you’re one of them. October is my birthday month, so consider this an invitation to my month-long birthday party. Hope to see you over at That’s So Jacob sometime!

  4. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my posts. You have such a great attitude (so positive!) Your blog is such a boost for aspiring (or other) writer (at least it is for me). I’ll get back on to you on what foreign languages you teach once I peruse your blog some more. 🙂
