Evan Schertz is the owner of Maria's Bookshop. As the son of the previous owners, Andrea Avantaggio and Peter Schertz, 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. 

When he's not at the shop, Evan enjoys running around in the woods and putzing around in his garden. 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 have taken over the family business.
