About Me


15195877_1130916800357418_4732578753729595520_o

I’m a native New Yorker, who, by transplanting to the New Jersey suburbs, conceived my first novel, THE MEMORY BOX, a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling psychological thriller about a woman who Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn’t remember—set in a fictional upscale suburb where things appear to be quite ordinary. It is available in paperback, ebook and audiobook worldwide online and at a bookstore near you.

Misconceptions provide particular fascination for me−when people appear to be normal because of their context but upon closer inspection are actually deviant, or at the very least a little screwy.  Incongruity carries over into my second novel, currently in progress. More on that later. Another theme that weaves its way through my fiction is the subject of control.  How people obsessed with control will do kooky things in order to attain it.  And by kooky, I mean, psycho.

That’s my fiction. My blog is dedicated (mostly) to everything non-fiction, sort of. A combination of humor and satire, oddball musings and the occasional poem. Some parts may contain baloney.

What else do you want to know? I eat every day (I love food!), I hate to exercise but should start to wrap my mind around that since my metabolism is no longer my best friend like it was in my twenties when I was addicted to Dove Ice Cream bars and would eat them every day for lunch. I’m an obstinate and oft times regretful do-it-yourselfer, I’m okay with my ears and my sternum, and I make up songs all the time as a way to dialogue with my kids.  They find it infrequently entertaining.

As for finding me elsewhere, my essays appear on The Huffington Post, New Jersey Monthly, The Mid, Sammiches and Psych Meds, the Parental Guidance blog on nj.com, anthologized in Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being A Mom and elsewhere.

I’m so appreciative to my readers. Thank you for stopping by to read something that has struck your fancy. I am also grateful to readers of THE MEMORY BOX and want to thank each and every one of you who has taken the time to write a review which takes time and effort, and I thank you for that. Also, many of you have reached out via Goodreads or here, with questions or comments. It’s always wonderful to hear from you!

  1. Hey, Eva, I’ve just discovered this blog. Very glad as I love your writing and sense of humour. Have subscribed, but why don’t you also put “Likes” options?

    1. Katia! You found me! I’m so delighted. I’m trying to write additional pieces here, but many, if not all, also appear on RR. I just found scribedoll too! So expect visits from me.

      Don’t I have Likes options? If not, please tell me how to get them – if you know. Thanks for stopping by. Always a pleasure.

  2. Eva – I can’t find your book on my Nook, so I thought, OK, I will buy it in hardcover because I still enjoy a good “paper” book. But, I don’t think B&N carries it in their retail store (I checked their website and couldn’t find it). Where can I buy a hardcopy?

    1. Hi Lori! thank you so much for asking! THE MEMORY BOX is available on barnesandnoble.com in paperback and on Amazon.com in paperback and ebooks. A change needed to be made to the cover a few days ago, and it takes some time for barnesandnoble.com to get the changes updated. You could try back in a few days, purchase on amazon.com or I can let you know when the barnesandnoble.com has re-stocked the book. Thank you so much for your interest! I hope you like it! Eva

      1. Thanks Eva – a friend of mine is reading it now and she loves it, she said she can’t put it down! 🙂

  3. Do you plan on releasing the audio version of The Memory Box? Checked audible today and no luck, not even a preorder date.

    1. Hi Mary, thanks so much for asking about the audio version. I have no immediate plans on releasing an audio version, but you’ve got me thinking! Perhaps in the future; I will let you know! All the best, Eva

  4. I need questions for my book group! I chose it for our group not realizing it was a new publication. Very exciting. It will be interesting to see how the group responds. Our get together is tomorrow, 8/25. Hopefully I can figure out some questions! Any help would be much appreciated. I just started reading this weekend and am excited to continue.

    1. Hi Mary,
      Thanks for choosing THE MEMORY BOX for your book club. If you look to the back of the book, both the ebook and the paperback versions have discussion questions. Those should get you started! Would love to know how your meeting goes. Thanks again.

  5. Hi there – our book club just read The Memory Box and had our discussion last night. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the book, but I was (and am) amazed on how differently we all netted out in regards to “what really happened.” Collectively we left one “argument” on the table and agreed to disagree, but would love your perspective. I do not want to write the question here given it would spoil the ending for anyone who has yet to read the book 🙂 – is there a private message space on your site?

    1. Love this, Mary! Hmmm, I wonder what you might be talking about and I think I know. I will email you and we’ll “chat.” Thanks for not explaining more. It’s hard to talk about The Memory Box with people who haven’t yet read it. So I appreciate your sensitivity! Thank you so much for reading The Memory Box with your book club.

    1. Hi Penny! Thank you for your kind words and for the swift kick in the butt! (I needed that…) I’ll try to write much faster today. I’ll keep you posted… Thanks for reading The Memory Box!

  6. Eva, I recently ran into an old mutual friend who told me you wrote a book. I was not surprised at your accomplishment and I immediately ran to get The Memory Box. I have just read the first 2 pages, and had to smile when I saw Lincoln Elementary. (Lancers forever?) I am soooo thrilled for you, and excited to read it! I will recommend it to my book club too! Congrats…

  7. I am currently reading The Memory Box. What an addictive book! I look forward to reading more of your work!

    1. Hi Melanie, Thank you so much for getting in touch. It’s great to hear from you and that you’re enjoying TMB! (I hope that continues . . . 😉 You’ll have to let me know. I’m hard at work on book #2 — it’s unrelated to TMB but just as psychological and just as thriller-y. More to come on that! Wishing you all great reads!
