Born and raised in Washington, DC, Eva S. Pinkney began writing in her early years as a form of therapy. Her writing journey began with poetry before embarking on her first novella. Her inaugural novella, Crazy Is as Crazy Does: Part One is based partly on Pinkney’s own experiences dealing with her mother’s mental illness. A touching coming-of-age story about growing up in the shadow of mental illness, Crazy Is as Crazy Does fearlessly tackles themes too long considered taboo.


She is currently working on her second book, but has aspirations of beyond print publications.


Pinkney now lives in Camp Springs, Maryland, but she will always be a "DC" girl at heart.
