She is the mother of three daughters that were previously home-schooled and are now either attending college or graduated from college and the drooling 'Lovey' to a baby boy. Ey was born in Texas and reared as an Army brat. There is the constant need to speak, writing and telling stories is the way she choose to socialize.

As a writer she had an essay in Essence magazine, published nine books and had several articles printed in the local paper and magazines. As the single-parent of three daughters, Ey Wade has worked in the childcare profession for over thirty years. Child safety has always been a concern in her life and she has drawn on those experiences to write the novel which has gained the attention of parents, parents-to-be, and child care professionals.
All of her books are highly recommendable to your friends, family and coworkers.

The Women of the Hill took me by surprise. More a novelette than a full length novel, it's packed full of personality and energy. Within the setting of a close-knit circle of friends, realistically drawn with razor-sharp, true to life dialogue, a plot is woven of African-American women struggling to survive economically and raise their children in the face of marriages and relationships gone wrong. The ending was so surprising and shocking that I was literally biting my nails as I whipped through the pages. Ey Wade knows how to portray real characters and tell a story with equal parts humor and pathos...a story that never loses its punch.

Ms. Wade has given us a story that both captivates and alarms.

Five women, each with a different and unique story, come together as friends in their homes on a hill. In their attempt to regain financial security they become part of a system created by Sam to help. But Sam seems to be less help and more intent on locking them into poverty. As Sam takes over their lives and those of their children they learn the very real lesson that there is seldom as easy fix to the travails of life. Once you let Sam into your life all control is relinquished and you become just a number. He steals your soul.

But while Sam is an invasive and controlling part of this story, the real story is that of the friendship and bonding of the women. As they come together five days a week to share their lives and watch Oprah their friendship grows and they learn life's lessons from each other.

But even when lessons are learned and understood not everyone is able to change the course of their lives. Danger can be anywhere and it comes even to the hill. The very place they have worked so hard to make safe and secure for their children. It comes disguised as love wearing a mask that hides its intent. Violence has come to the hill and changed each of their lives forever.

This is a story well worth reading. A story of friends bonding over soda and Oprah I felt I knew these women. Ms. Wade has brought them to life and given us a very real peak inside the hearts and minds of women who struggle to put food on the table, laughing and loving each other and their children. They are any of us.

Parent's Little Black Book

Ms. Wade, you continue to hold my attention with your stories. What I admire about you is that you take everyday life as a foundation. This story of five women was true to form. You displayed how in everyday life women continue to do what they need to do to maintain their families. I experienced both tears and laughter while reading.

I was happy to see those succeed in finding happiness, while feeling sorrow for those who lives met with tragedy.

What you bring to the table is what I look for in a good read. I will continue to read your work!
