Author has written 18 stories for General, Young Adult, General, Action, Fantasy, Life, Supernatural, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Romance.

There isn't much to say about Ms. Evelyn Downs. She's a quiet, average sort of girl, who spends her days with her cats, her books and her music. She has long enjoyed simply staring out into the world, trying to find the extraordinary nature of ordinary things--something which has quite unleashed her imagination. Like all quiet, average girls, Ms. Downs spent her childhood searching for adventure, magic--something to breathe life into her daydreams. Unfortunately, she has reached the era in life when one is forced to a simple, devastating realization: the waking world is a constrained to the imaginations of the people in it, which happen to often be less than extraordinary, and in fact rather complacent. And so, she did what any avid reader would do: she turned to the realm of fiction. Ms. Downs is now living out her days with frequent excursions to other, far off places, where she has discovered the wonder of vicarious adventure through her characters.

When reading the work of Ms. Downs, it is important to realize one thing: she writes only what she would love to read, and she reads what she wishes to experience. Therefore, rest assured that her fictions, while still in the realm of the believable, will also remain somewhat pure, relatively unambiguous, and firmly idealistic. After all, what quiet, average sort of girl doesn't dream of a happy ending?

So, without further ado, I give you the work of Ms. Evelyn Downs. May it bring you as much pleasure as it brings her.

Warmly,

The Corporeal PA

To Be Weak
Imagine if your home spontaneously exploded. Imagine if you were so traumatized that you became paranoid-obsessed-and thought the government had rigged your house. What if you thought they'd follow you...wouldn't you test your new house to see if it was explosion-proof before moving in? In a round about way that has to do with the story...possibly. Close your eyes and squint.

Empty Box
Just a little twist on the idea of romance and heartbreak. A little cheesy, a little sappy, just a tad angsty. Wrote it out of nowhere...see what you think. One-shot/flash fiction.

Survival reviews
I guess this is my attempt at defining human survival. Kind of bleak, I guess, but hey, why's that surprising? We can't even figure out our own "purpose" with any certainty! I'm not cynical, I promise. Anyway, read if you like philosophy. R&R, too, please!
