CALL ME EVIE by J.P. Pomare & Giveaway

evie

A seventeen year-old, wakes up from a drug-induced sleep and struggles to remember the role she played on the night her life changed … forever. 

The before and after narrative had me on pins and needles. Once I thought I figured CALL ME EVIE out, I was side-lined. The novel digs deep into our psyche and visits the darkest parts of our minds. Our memories are put to the test and we find ourselves – perhaps lying to ourselves.

*****

J.P has always been drawn to the dark. He grew up on a horse-racing farm in small town New Zealand with two brothers, a sister, two cats and two border collies.

Eventually he would find himself leaving Rotorua and landing in Melbourne, Australia. For three years he has produced and hosted a podcast, interviewing guests from Joyce Carol Oates and Dorthe Nors to John Safran and E. Lockhart. He also worked in marketing but in the evening he was always writing, contributing to a number of Australian publications and beginning to draft what would become CALL ME EVIE.

A first love for literary fiction quickly developed into a taste for sharp, fast paced story telling. Stories that surprised him, stories that tied a cold knot in the pit of his stomach.

His work has been widely published in journals including Meanjin, Kill Your Darlings, TLB review of books and The NZ Listener. He has also won, and been short-listed for a number of prizes.

J.P. lives with his wife, splitting his time between Melbourne city and Clunes.
