Hi! My name is Nan Yielding and I have loved to write for as long as I can remember. Over the years, I’ve written a little poetry, some short stories (see Where Are We Going Today?–my creative blog), and a number of articles for a business publication. Like many other writers, I dreamed of writing a book, but life’s responsibilities forced me to put the dream on the back burner.
In 1996, I decided to use my writing skills to make money and began writing marketing copy for small businesses. In 1998, I established my first website and began to write website copy for online business owners.
At the end of 2007, I decided to ‘retire’ from website copywriting and move my book-writing dream front and center. The subject for the book had been in the back of my mind for several years, so I was ‘ready’ to get started.
I created this website for other aspiring writers who may be like me … learning as you go. I sincerely hope you find something within the pages that will help you complete your writing dream.
I live among the pines in So. Oregon.
NOTICE: At the end of September 2012, I finally finished my book! It was a long hard road (5 years), but the reward of becoming a bonafide author is well worth it. The book is called “Things I Never Learned in Sunday School: Facts about the Christian faith that will surprise and astound you.” It is available in both paperback and Kindle format at Amazon. The Nook format can be found at Barnes and Noble. Other eBook formats are available through Kobo, Sony, Smashwords, Diesel, iBook, et al. To read excerpts, visit EscapeFromReligion.wordpress.com.
