Columnist Spotlight: Eve Culley



At Pandora’s Box Gazette, we truly appreciate our columnists and their monthly contributions to the magazine. We value their interesting and educational content and know that our readers enjoy reading their columns. We decided to let our readers get to know the columnists better. So, we will be featuring one of our columnists each month on the first Wednesday. Today we are featuring Eve Culley. Let’s get started chatting with Eve!

Why did you accept the invitation to write for Pandora’s Box Gazette?

I do book reviews for PBG, and usually, they are for children’s books. There are so many children books out there that my goal is to help parents, grandparents, etc. find good books for their children.

What has been the most influential book to your life that you’ve ever read?

IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE - by Sydney Watson

This book led me to Christ.


Which social media platform (ex. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ etc.) is your preferred mode of online communication? Do you prefer one over the others for promotion of your work?

I use them all, all the time. Plus my blog and website. I try to maintain a heavy presence on the web about my work. To drum up interest in your work requires a lot of work and consistency to do it right.

What do you like to do when you’re not working? How do you relax?

I read constantly and a wide variety of genres. I also like to sit in the barn with the animals. We gossip and catch each other up on our lives.

Is there a hobby you’d like to take on if you had the time?

I like to do handwork: crocheting, knitting, embroidery, but I don’t have the time for it now. It’s a matter of choice, and I would rather be writing than anything else.

Did you play any sports or belong to clubs in school?

I was a thespian during high school and attended State Wide contests for drama. I specialized in Fairy Tales. I was active in school plays, on stage and off, as well as the orchestra and marching band.

What do you do to keep learning each day? Read? Play puzzle games? Take online courses?

I play word games; hidden object games as well as take online classes in writing, editing, and history classes. Plus, I like to play chess.


What was the most significant event in your life?

I think the most significant event in my life would be accepting the Lord Jesus Christ when I was 21 yrs old. Next would be marrying my best friend and then publishing of my first book. (Hmm, might be a change in line up for the last two. Just kidding, Don… just kidding.)

Who is your role model?

The woman in Proverbs 31 has always held a special place in my heart. I want to be just like her.

I agree. I want to be like her too! Have you taken an active role in mentoring someone?

Yes, I encourage those who express a desire to be a writer to read and write. I read their work, listen to them, and encourage them to continue. I was encouraged when I began to write (and still am), and I believe it is important to pay it forward.

About the Book

Welcome to Barn Town where the residents are friendly and there is mischief and mystery around every corner. Things are changing in Barn Town and Ol' Stripe is keeping his eye on the new arrivals and the current residents in an attempt to keep the peace.



About the Author


I have been a storyteller since childhood, often preferring the make-believe world to the “real” one. My hubby, children, and grandchildren are usually my first audience nowadays.

You can connect with Eve online at her blog, website, on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram.

You can read Eve’s regular column here at Pandora’s Box Gazette on the 2nd Monday each month.
