Evelyn Render Katz, a retired occupational therapist, loves stories and now devotes her days to writing them. Raised on fairy tales and myths, she creates characters and worlds influenced by those timeless themes.

The Book and the Burning Mirror, inspired by Sardinian mythology, is the first in a series of urban fantasy novels for middle grade readers.

“A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.” 
― Ursula K. Le Guin

A book comes and says, 'Write me.' My job is to try to serve it to the best of my ability, which is never good enough, but all I can do is listen to it, do what it tells me and collaborate.

Madeleine L'Engle

The Book and the Burning Mirror, The Book and the Astral Mirror and the Book and the Mirror of Merisola  are the three novels that form my fantasy trilogy. Currently in final stages of editing, I hope to publish the first book in fall of 2023. Look for updates and more information on my blog.
