Eve Bunting, Author
By Brenda B. Covert
1 It's no wonder that Eve Bunting grew up to become an author. She was born and raised in Ireland, a country known for storytelling. Not only did Bunting love to tell stories, she loved to read stories as well. Books were good company on rainy days.
2 Eve Bunting grew up and married a man who loved books as much as she did. In 1958, they emigrated from Ireland, coming to America with their three children. California became their new home.
3 Bunting was thirty years old and had not yet begun her career as a children's author. To get started, she took a creative writing class at a local college. At home, she turned a small attic room into her own private workspace. She found story ideas in the books, magazines, and newspapers that she read.
