About the Author

"Evia" or Eve Sharon Moore is an African American woman who is married to a white American man. She is the proud mother of two sons, and holds undergrad and graduate degrees in comparative cultures and counseling. Aside from writing, she devotes herself to the arts and to her home-based fiber arts and jewelry business. Evia has traveled internationally, lived abroad, and has spent time on various 'slices of life,' " she says. She was interviewed extensively and cited by the Associated Press in 2007 in an article regarding the surge in African American women dating and marrying white men, and her blog that began in 2006, soon morphed into the website: BlackFemaleInterracialMarriage.com. Along with essays, the site contains numerous pictures of black female-non-black male couples from all walks of life-from the rich and famous to the ordinary. " I wanted to shine the light on the interracial marriage option for African American women. It's another choice that upwardly mobile African American women, especially, have for love and marriage that is not often reflected in the black or white media. I wanted to urge African American women to take advantage of those possibilities for love and marriage outside their immediate environment, just as women of other races and ethnicities do." Evia urges African American women to "feel free to date and marry any suitable, loving and lovable quality man from any background in the global village. The 'quality' of the man is the critical factor; not skin shade," she stresses, and "men of quality come in all skin shades and from all backgrounds. Lots of these guys would love the chance to develop a loving, committed relationship with a black woman. And let's face it, finding a man of quality in the ocean is much easier than finding him in a backyard puddle." In Book 1 of her essays, plucked from the more than 400 essays she has written, she describes herself as 'unapologetic' in spurring black women towards more fulfilling lives. She is often described as "courageous" among those in her wide readership as she implores African American women to engage in self-love and to promote and protect their own interests-'first and foremost.' Book 1 is the first book in the series discussing the intersection of black women's empowerment along with aspects of love and marriage between African American women and non-African American men at the turn of the millennium.

More About the Author

Eve Sharon "Evia" Moore is an interracially-married essayist, interracial and intercultural relationship adviser, writer, podcaster, and producer of a growing series of books, newsletters, and podcasts on the subject of interracial and intercultural marriage. In 2007, the Associated Press interviewed Evia over a period of weeks for an AP article on interracial marriage. Her website, blackfemaleinterracialmarriage.com, was spotlighted in the article that focused on the surge in black women entering interracial relationships and marriages.

This popular niche website provides practical, empowering advice to women and encourages them to embrace the abundance in all realms of life, which includes making the commonsense decision to take advantage of all of their dating and mating options by inviting quality, interested men of all races and cultures into their potential relationship pool.

The site, that began in 2006, soon "morphed" into a popular Ezine that has attracted millions of visits. Along with provocative essays and conversations, the site contains numerous videos, article links, and photos of black woman-non-black man couples from all walks of life-from the rich and famous to the ordinary.

"With my blog, I want to shine the light on interracial and intercultural marriage options for African American women. These are other choices that upwardly mobile African-American women have for love and marriage that are not often reflected in the black or white media. I wanted to urge these women to take advantage of the many possibilities for love and marriage outside their immediate environment, just as women of other races and ethnicities do."

Evia urges African-American women to "feel free to date and marry any suitable, compatible, loving, and lovable man of quality from any background in the global village. The 'quality' of the man and compatible values are the critical factors--not skin shade," she stresses.

Evia is the proud mother of two sons, and holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in comparative cultures (ethnology) and counseling. Aside from writing and advising, she devotes herself to appreciating the arts, along with creating and selling her fiber art and jewelry designs. Evia travels widely and has lived abroad.

Format: Paperback
The author of this book, for the past three years has been a steadfast positive influence for Black women everywhere...She advocates living well without making apologies! Sadly, many believe that Black women should accept a "lowly" or "servants" stance in life...Not so...This writing is a comprehensive guide to why it is essential for Black women to select quality mates from the get-go...I urge the reader to purchase this book and pass it along to other women in their circle...I also recommend this to the younger Black woman who is beginning to take an interest in the opposite sex, as it will give advance preparation...Eagerly awaiting the second book!

Format: Paperback
"First and Foremost" is a terrific and practical book and guide for black women young and old alike. Ms. Moore shares her profound and common-sense perspectives on black woman and white male marriage and relationships. It is not difficult to understand why the author's popularity soared as more and more black women were drawn into the fact-packed essays and discussions as it seems that you are watching the dialogue take place. I appreciate Ms. Moore's ginuine concern (not condescension) for black women as we realize the boundaries that have been overtly and covertly placed on us within the black community. Those discarding the bill of goods will come away intrigued,determined and knowing they can do better and get better. This book is vital to understanding why we should be seeking a quality mate and living well. Readers will look forward to next book in this exciting series!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for women transitioning into a life with unlimited dating and marriage options. Mrs. Moore gives a birds eye view into her very normal life and how this kind of life is possible for any woman that wants it. Lots of practical advice: the kind of information that is so desperately needed among the young, inexperienced, or unsuccessful at love. Her writings are like talking to an older, much smarter friend. She also skillfully removes the "blinders" that many Black women have,in regards to love and life in general. She introduces you to concepts that will help your OVERALL life. This book was worth every penny!

If you are not sure whether Mrs.Moore's book will be beneficial to you, go to her website and browse. If you like what you see, then I can promise you that you will enjoy this book.

I'm a young black woman who just started dating so this book really laid to rest any doubts I had about interracial dating and marriage. Usually, when I was with family or watching black shows (comedy or drama) someone always has to make a loud declaration about how "black women aren't attracted to white men" or how the white man will always hate the black man. Admittedly, I've always been attracted to black men as well as men of other races but I just absorbed the messages that men of other races would find me unattractive and that I shouldn't even bother being attracted to them. Of course, it began to dawn on me, through experience, that what seemed like common sense at the time was incredibly stupid. I began to discover that I attracted a lot black men but they disrespectful towards me and my creep detector went off more than once. The black men I developed crushes on were friendly, clever,witty and we shared the same interests BUT I would always discover that they exclusively dated women of other races (some would even tell me why they disliked black women since we're such good friends and I'm not like "those" black women lol!). Well meanwhile, I'd been approached by white men who were sweet and respectful but by golly I was just too anxious about the idea of dating outside my race! The whole thing seems really ridiculous now. Well, its 2012, I just turned 24 and with the help of Eve's blog and book I'm seriously over the race thing. Until Evia's blog and book, I didn't know that a LARGE majority of people in the world did not live in fear, paranoia,loneliness, and worn out ideas because they simply refused to. They moved on and I knew I wanted to be one of them so...I moved on too, haha.Read more ›

Evia Sharon Moore

Still profiting off the misery of desperate black women with yet another book saying the same thing again. I guess she is using a different cover for her propaganda bashing black men.

It is interesting that her counterpart Christelyn Karazin who pretty much bootlegged her ideas and got a book and movie deal out of it refuse to credit her for most of her ideas.

It really all boils down to black women really looking out for themselves instead of their lower class counterparts that will never get a white "rainbeau". From my understanding, both women got a kid or kids by a black man already. How can they be taken serious here? It is laughable.

I wonder what will happen when they don't deliver for their readers. Everything they talk about is indirectly or directly about black men. Yet, they never confront the white guy for lack of interest.

Where are their blogs saying they love black women or want to marry them. If anything, these women are doing a disservice for black women that might want a white partner but look desperate.

Evia Sharon Moore should just retire at this point. Showing Darren after about x amount of years is not going to help you. If you did that earlier you might have got a book and movie deal instead of Christelyn Karazin the intellectual lightweight.

Have a nice day
