Evanne-Delaporte-Romance-Writer-Author-Ashland-Oregon-home-page-artward-winning California writer Evanne Delaporte has packed up her closetful of yellow legal pads and moved to the great Pacific Northwest, where she is adding “amour” to her list of favorite subjects: the arts, architecture, and animals. Her current work in progress is a romance trilogy set in a small town on the California coast.


“Visiting Crater Lake and other natural wonders in the Northwest has been a great source of inspiration for me,” said Edie Delaporte at a recent meeting of Willamette Writers. “I think all writers accept that we have to spend a certain number of hours at our desks, but it’s also important to embrace the outdoors and refresh our spirits.” Photo: Ed Fierro
