About the Author

"Evia" or Eve Sharon Moore is an African American woman who is married to a white American man and writes often about interracial relationships. She is the proud mother of two sons, and holds undergrad and graduate degrees in ethnology and counseling. Aside from writing, she devotes herself to the arts and to her home-based fiber arts and jewelry business. Evia travels internationally each year and has lived abroad. She was interviewed extensively by the Associated Press in 2007 and cited 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 and intercultural marriage options for African American women. These are other choices that upwardly mobile African American women, especially, have for love and marriage that are not often reflected in the black or white media. I wanted to urge African American women to take advantage of the many possibilities for love and marriage outside their immediate environment." 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 2 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" by 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 2 is the second book in the series, discussing the intersection of black women's empowerment and love and marriage between African American women and men from a variety of races and ethnic groups 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.

Please prepare your Black daughters for the sometimes treacherous waters of dating! Giving this book as a gift would be a great start. Please do not live in denial and let them "figure it out on their own". We must guide these precious young ladies into quality, loving relationships where they are VALUED!

Format: Paperback
This book was interesting and frustrating to read. Don't get me wrong: Evia's topics and insights always inspire me to create the best life that I can. I was also inspired by the regular commenters' insights. Evia and her regular readers don't shy away from addressing some really disturbing trends and stereotypes that black women have to face. It also helped me to understand how much clinging to worn out ideas quite literally drains you of energy, vitality, and originality. I find myself getting quite literally bored and tired when any sort of negativity comes my way and I makes sure to stay away from potentially ignorant/toxic people, doesn't matter if there family or acquaintances. This a great book for young black women who want to take control of their own image and define themselves. I guess what made this a frustrating read was the fact a lot of women in my personal life simply refuse to step out of the box and I can see so clearly how it's all going to end. On a brighter note, I've become acquainted a lot of younger black women,like myself, at school, who are not chained to group think, comfortable in there own skin and open dating all men regardless of color, so more black women are definitely getting the message.

Format: Paperback
With CHOICES, Evia Moore offers a fascinating follow-up to FIRST AND FOREMOST. Presented as a series of essay, followed by commentary offered by readers of her popular blogsite ([...]), CHOICES is like sitting in a roomful of sistahs, talking about race, men, marriage, children and choices. I kept wanting to chime in, to offer my opinion, to share a similar experience.

The best books are the ones that draw you in, that make you the reader become a part of them. CHOICES is that kind of book. It offers a wealth of ideas and wisdom for black women re-thinking the criteria on which she chooses a man and offeres insight into the impact that choice can have on a woman's security, happiness and children.

I highly recommend it!
