Bill Evans

Bill Evans currently is living on the central coast of California in San Luis Obispo County. Evans is a veteran of a 45-year TV/Radio career in senior management. Evans has re-invented himself as a writer/novelist. I didn’t want anyone in control of my creative future because they thought I was too old. His first book, "Murder At Broadcast Park" came out October 15, 2017 and is published by Koehler Publishing. His second book that will be out December 1st under the pen name, Calvin Anthony Lang, is titled "The Traveling Sex Game." His third book "Live On TV 3 Palm Springs" will be out in April/May of 2018.

The first two books will be showcased at the Tucson Festival of Books in the Indie Fiction Pavilion on Saturday, March 10th between 12:15 – 2:15 pm.

As a broadcast manager of television stations all over the country Evans was recognized as one of the best sales trainers in local TV sales. His stations won multiple local Emmys as well as many other broadcasting awards. One of the things I’m most proud of is the creation of the Charity Challenge, which was designed to help the local non-profits in the Palm Springs area. During its seven-year run, Charity Challenge raised over a million dollars to help local charities and call attention to their individual causes.

Bill Evans has four grown children and four grandchildren. “I love this new career that I’ve invented for myself and I plan to write a lot of good stories to share with people who love to read.”
