Stephanie Jaye Evans is a fifth generation Texan and thinks that’s something to brag about even though some people disagree. She received her B.A. from Abilene Christian University and won a University-wide writing contest with a piece that contained the word “breast,” quite an accomplishment at a Church of Christ university.
After a lifetime of raising sons who raised hell, she attended Rice University’s Master of Liberal Studies Program and wrote a mystery, Standing On the Promises, as her capstone project. Standing On the Promises won the 2010 William F. Deeck-Malice Domestic Grant for Unpublished Writers and that garnered Stephanie a trip to the annual Malice Domestic convention where she got to make a forty-two second speech and meet the indomitable Janet Reid of FinePrint Literary Management (jetreidliterary.blogspot.com). She is currently at work on the second novel in her Murder in Sugar Land – A Pugworthy Mystery series, Now the Day is Over.
Stephanie lives in Sugar Land, Texas with her longsuffering husband, Richard, and two officious pugs, Tommy and Mr. Wiggles.
