VJ Books Presents Author Richard Paul Evans!

Richard Paul EvansRichard Paul Evans was born in 1962 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He got his BA from the University of Utah and became an advertising executive. His career as a novelist began with a novella he wrote for his children called The Christmas Box (1993). Unable to find a willing publisher, Evans self-published the book, which became a smash hit in his local community and was eventually bought by Simon & Schuster for a $4.2 million advance payment. The book went on to become a #1 New York Times Bestseller in both hardcover and paperback.

Evans wrote two more books in the Christmas Box series, and has published almost 40 novels to date, in addition to several children's and non-fiction books. Among his novels are the best-selling Michael Vey novels for young adults. Evans won the American Mothers book award, two first place Storytelling World awards, The Romantic Times Best Women's Novel of the Year Award, the German Leserpreis Gold Award for Romance, and three RCC Wilbur Awards. Four of Richard's books have been produced as television movies.

Beyond his prolific and successful career as a novelist, Evans founded Christmas Box International, a charity organisation which cares for neglected and abused children. He is the recipient of the Washington Times Humanitarian of the Century Award and the Volunteers of America National Empathy Award.

Evans currently lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, Keri, and their five children.
