KIPJO K. EWERS
(co-founder/author, creative director)
Kipjo K. Ewers was born on July 1, 1975. At an early age, he had an active imagination. By the time he started kindergarten, he would make up fictitious stories. One of his favorites was about a character named “Old Man Norris,” who hated everyone in the world except for him.
When he attended Our Lady of Victory Elementary School in Mount Vernon, NY, he continued writing and reading stories to his classmates. His teacher, Mrs. Green, told the children who laughed, that was how some of the great stories they read came about.
After elementary school, he went on to Salesian High School in New Rochelle, NY, and then on to Iona College, also in New Rochelle.
He would work for several major firms and companies within the New York area, but his passion was to become a journalist and writer. Therefore, it is not surprising he decided to write his first novel.
Kipjo began creating a new superhuman universe delivering original storylines and taking action-adventure to the next level. With his third novel, he continues to expand the EVO Universe lore.
Thank you for reading and for your support.
