In 1954, she came to The United States of America. with her husband, and settled in New Jersey, where she raised two daughters. For mental stimulation, Eva took up writing and became a freelancer. Eventually, she was hired to teach the creative writing classes at area senior and community centers. Thanks to her editing, a number of her students became published authors.
After receiving several awards from the Philadelphia Writers Conference, in the early days of her career, at least 70 of Eva's short-shorts and a number of anecdotes got published in various magazines and newspapers.
