Author Eve Riley also writes under the pen name Pasadena Shakes. Eve writes in a variety of genres, including contemporary fiction. After taking early retirement from her career as an attorney, Eve now devotes her time to writing. Her first book, a work of nonfiction, was published in 2006. A decade later, Eve switched genres and began creating works of contemporary fiction. Her debut novel, Irredeemable, and its sequel, Insurmountable, are ready for publication. The final work in the trilogy, Irreplaceable, is coming soon.

Most recently, Eve has begun another nonfiction project titled Old Dogs, a loving, photographic tribute to the old dogs who helped us raise our kids, welcomed us home from an horrendous day at work, and, despite being up in years, continued to love us no matter what. Old Dogs is still in the planning stage but is coming along nicely.

When not writing, the author enjoys spending time with her husband, their cat, four dogs, and colonies of honey bees. Empty nesters, the couple split their time between St. Louis, Missouri, and Pasadena, California.
