Praise for Eva's novels

‘I highly recommend
Wild Writing with Eva…
the space created is powerfully potent and focused, yet so simple.
I decided to start on something that seemed impossible, overwhelming. And I did it!
Amazing and so grateful. ‘

'This work has given me a voice, helped me understand consent and how to verbalise my boundaries, dispel the myths I held about sex and old conditioning and to learn how to navigate new relationships.
I experienced deep healing from feelings of abandonment, rejection and sexual trauma, learned how to connect with my own sexual energy and deeply honour myself.’
