About Cheryl B. Evans

Author, Cheryl B. Evans was born and raised in Ontario, Canada.  Evans became a writer out of a deep desire to help make the world a kinder and more compassionate place for the LGBTQ community.  In a world that seems to do far more judging than embracing when it comes to human diversity, Evans pours her passion into her writing in the hopes of making a difference.    

She is an LGBTQ ally and transgender advocate and believes strongly in protecting the human rights of transgender persons and helping to educate others.   Along with her husband Jim, they have raised two wonderful children, one of whom is transgender. Evans has written about their very personal journey in her award-winning LGBT memoir  I Promised Not to Tell, Raising a Transgender Child.  In it, she shares every step in their son's transition from female to male, the family's struggles and triumphs. This deeply personal and detailed account of their lives is shared in an effort to help support, encourage and educate others on the topic of gender dysphoria.  It is the author's sincere hope that by sharing her family's true story it will help others gain a better understanding of what it is truly like to be a transgender person.  For a shortened version of her family's story please visit the pinned post at the top of Written By Mom's facebook page here  and while you're there why not give the page a like - I know Cheryl would appreciate it!

If you are interested in reading more about gender dysphoria from a science, social and religious perspective you may want to check out Evans's second book: What Does God Think? Transgender People and The Bible.  In it Evans uses strong biblical and scientific references to answer the question many Christians have thought about, What Does God Think? about transgender people.

Book Review on I Promised Not to tell:  
"I was highly impressed with Evans' story and found myself cheering on her and her husband as they supported their son through each step of his transition journey. Evans writes beautifully, and her accounts of Jordan's and their lives is authentic and moving. It's most highly recommended."
