About the Author
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan during the 1950's, Constance Eve
can always remember sitting at the kitchen table with her nose to a
book. Having been taught, however, that a college education was useless
for girls of her ethnic background, she was instead persuaded to attend
secretarial school. After her clerical career took a nosedive,
Constance met and fell in love with the man she has been married to for
the past 41 years.
Roused by her husband's encouragement, Constance began to explore many
avenues in her life. Although she never graduated from a university,
she did pursue a liberal arts education at Macomb Community College
while raising four children, maintaining a 4.0 average for several
years. Her favorite subject was English, whereupon she received an A+
in creative writing. Encouraged by these achievements, she began
studying the art of writing with her piano teacher, Yuri Dia Konov, who
was also an accomplished author. Soon, she was composing her own novel
and in 2006 was awarded first prize by the National League of American
Pen Women for an original short story.
Other endeavors include being a member of Grosse Pointe Theatre where
she has appeared in a half dozen musicals, was awarded a "Clarence" and
also served on its board of directors. Possessing an inherent love for
her country, she ran for office under the Libertarian ticket during the
1998 and 2000 elections. In spite of these undertakings, however,
Constance's pride and joy is her endearing family which, after the
addition of three wonderful sons-in-law, a fantastic daughter-in-law and nine delightful
grandchildren, she still looks forward to an ever-flourishing family
