Eve Morton is a writer living in Ontario, Canada. She teaches university and college classes on media studies, academic writing, and genre literature, among other topics. She likes forensic science through the simplified lens of TV and philosophy through the cinematic lens of Richard Linklator.
Eve Morton grew up a forty-minute drive from Toronto, where she often spent her summers wandering down Queen Street West, going to concerts, or exploring the landscape of Rouge Hill, Toronto Island, and Exhibition Place. After graduating with a degree in English Literature and Women Studies, she floated from retail job to retail job before deciding that the classroom was the right place for her. While obtaining her advanced degrees in English Literature (with an emphasis on non-traditional representation and publishing), she met her husband. The two had both grown up a mere fifteen minutes from one another, yet had never met before, and soon found themselves easily falling in love as they explored the same place where they were both from with new eyes. In 2018, the two married in their shared hometown in an outdoor ceremony and then went on a road trip for their honeymoon spanning from Detroit to Key West, Florida, and then back again through the mid-West to Chicago and eventually their shared home in Ontario. These adventures made Eve fall in love all over again, and sparked many of her current projects.
When she is not teaching online classes or working on yet another project, Eve is often reading a lot of books or listening to music from some of her favourite artists. She also loves to explore New Age shops in each city she visits, and continues to read tarot and astrology because it is so much fun.
Eve also loves true crime, especially the forensic side of it, and is especially swayed by a really good podcast (especially if it’s funny). She continues to do research work with LGBTQ communities, along with those affected by addiction, mental illness, homelessness, or other issues related to crime reduction and victim services. Her latest chapbook, Everyone’s a Detective, explores some of these issues through the lens of armchair sleuthing and digital life, and is forthcoming at the end of 2020.
