About the Author

Evan Williams entered his first writing competition in sixth grade, a county-wide agricultural conservation essay contest, and won second place along with a nifty plaque. For Evan, writing is his repayment of gratitude to every author who has inspired him to dream beyond what his eyes can see. His memoir, One Apple at a Time, received the Willie Parker Peace Award for state history from the North Carolina Historical Society. Prior to America's Revolutionary War, Evan's ancestors settled in the Blue Ridge range of the Appalachians, where he remains today. RIPPLES draws heavily on his family's multi-generational apple-growing business. Surrounded by orchard, Evan writes from within a former apple-storage shed-the same shed where he would steal away as a boy to enjoy quality reading time.

Reviews

"A wise, ardent debut novel about the burden of one man's past and his search for absolution. " --Jonathan Dee, 2011 Pulitzer Prize Finalist for The Privileges

"This narrative is nothing short of a startling once-in-a-millennia meteor shower.... Williams seems always to capture little parts of who we are, of who we know we are but only recognize when he points them out. Both scenic and sonic, RIPPLES joins the gorgeous literary canon that the Carolina Appalachians have bestowed on America."--F. Rutledge Hammes, 2019 South Carolina Arts Commission Prose Fellow, and author of A Curious Matter of Men With Wings

"There's a dark secret hidden in the apple orchards of Abundance, North Carolina.... Williams's fierce, Wolfian first novel reminds us that to complete the journey, we not only can go home again, we must." --David Payne, author of Barefoot to Avalon: A Brother's Story
