Short biography
Evelyn Anthony started writing in 1949, following her marriage. Her pen name comes from Evelyn as a man's profile, as women were often not published during the years after the Second World War, and Saint Anthony the Catholic patron saint of Lost Causes. She first produced short stories for periodicals, then gained fame and success with her well-researched historical novels. Later she switched to writing contemporary thrillers and spy novels, many with strong female leads. She adapted well to the end of the Cold War and continued writing thrillers set in the post-1990 reality. Her books have been translated into no less than 19 languages. Noted that many of the earlier works were reissued after 2000 under different titles. She married the director of a mining company and had six children.
