Evan Baughfman has always been an avid reader, but his passion for writing began in high school when he won awards for his short stories. Evan then attended University of Redlands, where he wrote, acted in, and directed murder mystery plays as fundraisers for local charities. In May 2006, Evan graduated from U of R with Honors in Creative Writing. Some of his poetry and non-fiction has been published in collegiate literary magazines, such as The Redlands Review (University of Redlands), Myriad (El Camino Community College), and Enjambed (Cal State Dominguez Hills). Many of his plays have been produced across the U.S., from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Connecticut and New York. Numerous examples of his playscripts are available for review on the website, New Play Exchange.
When Evan became a middle school English teacher in Fall 2006, he found new inspiration for his written work. Now, much of Evan’s writing is geared towards a young audience, with the hopes of encouraging reluctant readers to pick up a book or even create their own stories, poems, and plays. He has earned two certifications from the Institute of Children's Literature: “Writing and Selling Children’s Books” and “Writing for Children and Teenagers". His children's play, “R.O.M.3.O. and Julia” (Romeo and Juliet with robots) has been published in PLAYS Magazine. His play for young adults, “Lipstick and Heroics,” is available at youthplays.com. In addition, Evan is the author of middle grade novels Bad for Your Teeth (about two boys' efforts to thwart the plans of an "evil" dentist) and Victor, Victorious (about a teenage bully turned superhero). He has also penned a collection of 13 short scary stories titled Twisted Tales from Edgar Allan Poe Middle School and spooky novella, Disappearance of the 6th Grade.
