Evan Schertz is currently taking over ownership of Maria's Bookshop from his parents, Peter Schertz and Andrea Avantaggio. Evan spent his childhood crawling, then tottering, then eventually walking around Maria's Bookshop, occasionally doing the kinds of mischevious things that unsupervised toddlers love to do at Maria's like unplugging computers and drooling on books. A part of Evan will always wonder why he decided to study Mechanical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, but that's what he did.

When he's not at the shop, Evan enjoys running around in the woods, putzing around in his garden, and pursuing the creation of The Very Best Pie in the Whole World. His favorite ice cream flavor is usually mint chocolate chip - especially from Cream Bean Berry.

Evan's favorite kind of book is one with lots of run on sentences and made up words which make him smile a bit and wonder at the joys of reading good books. He is thrilled and proud to be taking over the family business.
