Crow Johnson Evans
Award winning songwriter/performer, Crow Johnson Evans is passionate about apparently disparate fields—Writing books, studying zoology, songwriting, performance, teaching workshops, spinning wool, weaving, sketching, bird watching, and travel.
“I’m obsessed with nature and its interplay in human life and dreams. Every thing truly is connected. The challenge for me is to honor and to express it with all the color, sound, and texture of the present tense.”
Her first book, “Flights of Fancy” is a collection of essays, short stories, memoir, lyrics, a novella and other pieces.
For Oghma Publishing, she is completing a YA novel about a young girl who becomes friends with an old, reclusive, and extremely quirky woman. Their adventures are hair raising, alarming, and funny. Their conversations and dilemmas change each of their lives.
Her second project for Oghma is a series of children’s picture books about bird watching —through the eyes of children living at the eco lodges. “The Bird People are Coming- to Sulawesi” will be the first of six books.
She and her husband, Arthur, live in Northwest Arkansas, and enjoy wilderness, laughing too much, good friends, and eco-touring.
A founding board member of the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Crow celebrates the fire of creativity that writers, artists, and musicians—given the space and time—live to kindle.
