Three books make “The Eve Chronicles” by Diane DeVillers.

http://https//www.amazon.com/Diane-DeVillers/e/B00BWY3Q9K/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0  Look at my author page showing my ebooks and paperback book about when I first moved to Oregon from the cold, snowy prairie of Wisconsin to the Wallowa Mountains in eastern Oregon when I lived in my tent and worked all day in the wilderness doing timber surveys for the Forest Service. In ‘From the Waters of Coyote Springs”

“Felix and Eve” is about Gold Beach Oregon on the southern coast where Eve lives a summer with Felix, an elderly man recovering from heart by-pass surgery. Felix used to work for the notorious gangster, Al Capone during the days of probation.

Then decades later, when Eve’s a retired baby boomer, she owns property on Moon Mt. where she lives in a beautiful house, making pastel colored pottery. Vinnie lives in a yurt in her backyard. For the past 15 years, she receives a letter with a skeleton key in it. and heads to Catalina Island to visit a former lover who has Multiple Sclerosis.

Vinnie stays behind and caretakes her estate and waters her many flower beds and vegetable garden. Vinnie is in love with Eve but remains silent.

“The Eve Chronicles” contains all three books but is in paperback. These fictionalized memoirs follow my journals but have fictionalized parts.

Song “Do Something About it” released from Eugene Oregon during divisive times

“Do Something About It” is a song about doing the right thing, standing up for things you believe in. The world is becoming more and more evolved into a world consciousness, that believes that standing up for our rights still rings true. Baby boomers wanting change, are resisting the recent election. The song is released from Eugene Oregon by two former band mates from the days in the nineties when they were in the band “Nervous Rex”.

Diane DeVillers and Mark  (Vinnie) Alaniz, just celebrated 23 years together.
