About the author:
"Evia" or Eve Sharon Moore is an African American woman who is married to a white American man and writes often about interracial relationships. She is the proud mother of two sons, and holds undergrad and graduate degrees in ethnology and counseling. Aside from writing, she devotes herself to the arts and to her home-based fiber arts and jewelry business. Evia travels internationally each year and has lived abroad.
She was interviewed extensively by the Associated Press in 2007 and cited in an article regarding the surge in African American women dating and marrying white men, and her blog that began in 2006, soon morphed into the website: BlackFemaleInterracialMarriage.com. Along with essays, the site contains numerous pictures of black female-non-black male couples from all walks of life-from the rich and famous to the ordinary. " I wanted to shine the light on the interracial marriage and intercultural marriage options for African American women. These are other choices that upwardly mobile African American women, especially, have for love and marriage that are not often reflected in the black or white media. I wanted to urge African American women to take advantage of the many possibilities for love and marriage outside their immediate environment."
Evia urges African American women to "feel free to date and marry any suitable, loving and lovable quality man from any background in the global village. "The quality of the man is the critical factor; not skin shade," she stresses, and "men of quality come in all skin shades and from all backgrounds. Lots of these guys would love the chance to develop a loving, committed relationship with a black woman. And let's face it, finding a man of quality in the ocean is much easier than finding him in a backyard puddle."
In Book 2 of her essays, plucked from the more than 400 essays she has written, she describes herself as 'unapologetic' in spurring black women towards more fulfilling lives. She is often described as "courageous" by those in her wide readership as she implores African American women to engage in self-love and to promote and protect their own interests 'first and foremost.' Book 2 is the second book in the series, discussing the intersection of black women's empowerment and love and marriage between African American women and men from a variety of races and ethnic groups at the turn of the millennium.
