Evie Drae is a registered nurse by day and an award-winning male/male romance writer by night. She is married to the love of her life, is the mother of three wonderful fur babies, and runs almost entirely on coffee and good vibes. She’s been a member of Romance Writers of America® for several years now, but joined Rainbow Romance Writers in 2019. With the fabulous literary agent Eva Scalzo from Speilburg Literary in her corner, she has landed a contract from Dreamspinner Press to release her debut novel, Beauregard and the Beast, August 20, 2019.
She has won first place in seven Romance Writers of America® (RWA®) competitions, including the prestigious title “Best of the Best” in the 2018 Golden Opportunity Contest. She is a double finalist in the 2019 Golden Heart®, in both the Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense categories, and finished as a second-place runner-up in four additional RWA contests.
One of Evie’s favorite things to do is encourage her fellow writers. To that end, she started the #writeLGBTQ and #promoLGBTQ hashtags on Twitter to support and promote LGBTQ+ authors and allies while providing a safe space to connect and grow as a community. She has also started two Goodreads groups to further this effort. Write LGBTQ+ Beta Readers aims to connect writers looking for the all important beta readers for their WIP babies, and Write LGBTQ+ ARC Readers strives to hook up published authors with readers willing to provide reviews in exchange for an advanced release copy of their upcoming/new release(s)!
