She won gold in the Children’s Picture Book Series category for her “Teeny Tiny Tina” series of books. The titles in the series include “Teeny Tiny Tina and her Teeny Tiny Pet” and “Teeny Tiny Tina the Teeny Tiny Tooth Fairy.”

She weaves together traditional tales and fantasies to create a memorable world populated by loveable characters that children want to visit again and again, while imparting gentle lessons to prepare children for some of the challenges they may face while growing up.

“They teach them to accept differences and encourage them to embrace their uniqueness,” Evans said.

Evans’ books are published by Lake Oswego-based Wink Publishing. They are available at Frog Pond Toys in Lake Oswego as well as through Evans’ website at tinatoothfairy.com.
