Yvonne Carder lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband Kevin, and her 3 cats, Princess Pumpkin Doodle, Nichademus, and Barracuda Bob. Yvonne has a love for animals that she strives to show in her work.
She has lived in California since 1982 when she and her parents emigrated from Germany. Most of her family is still in Germany with the exception of some of her Dad's family in the Midwest. Her roots in Germany are something that she is very proud of and it influences her writing.
Yvonne has been involved in the arts since a young child when she joined the school bands, choir, poetry club, and the art club at her high school. She has had poems published including 'tHE wORLD uP-sIDE dOWN' in Behind the Eye Las Positas College Anthology Number 16, 'The Black Trail' in Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans 1995 edition, and 'Wilderness Pond' in The Garden of Life by the National Library of Poetry. Yvonne has also won a scholarship for her fine art paintings. When she's not creating visual arts you can find her singing loudly in her car, or with a local choir and performing at their concerts.
Yvonne is currently working on her first full length novel: Luminata.
