Where I’ve Been…

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t been posting lately. I took a nasty spill out of my van and injured myself good.  I’m just now getting some decent use out of my right hand without too much pain. Ah, the joys of having wonky balance.  🙂

On the bright side, the draft of “Revenge of the Turd” is finished and sitting for a spell.  I’m letting this one sit for a month so I can approach it with fresh eyes.  I’m hoping to publish it before Halloween.

In the meantime, I’m writing a historical fiction book based on my great, great, great grandfather Henri Wehrung who served both in the French military and in the Civil War.  It’s not your typical historical fiction. I’m writing it from the point of view of a squirrel. Yup, you read that right. It’ll be finished by the end of August, but probably won’t be published until some time in November.

Off to create a new blog for the “Squirrel.” Make it a great day everyone!


My name is Yochana, or Yo, for short. Growing up on a farm in southeastern Ohio was pretty lonely, so books and art became my best friends. I wrote my first piece of "fan fiction" in fourth grade. It was based on the movie, "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," starring the late Cicely Tyson. That same school year, I wrote a poem that my teacher sent off to a publisher friend. He told her to give me a few years. A little over 20 years later, my poems were published. That to me was a few years. Since then, I've been a reporter who horrified the editors with my grammar skills, wrote for campus publications, written humorous company training manuals, and have written three books. These days, I'm back on the farm taking care of my mom, and living in a '95 Jayco Eagle Mini-motorhome with my cat, Lillie, and three grandkittens. (Thanks, Lillie.)
