About Me

Yvette Managan is a writer who works by day maintaining the chemical integrity of the Banana River. At night, she acts as intermediary between the neighbors, planets, hound-dog and Sun Conyer. She's taking notes.

Yvette reads to remember, writes to forget and re-enacts the American War Between the States to teach others that war is never healthy.

She acts as fiction editor for The Linnet’s Wing. Her works have recently been seen in Every Day Fiction, Open Magazine, Mason’s Road, Flashshot, Sporkpress, Eclecticflash, Killer Works, All Things Girl, Literal Translations, Polluto 6, Mirror Magazine, and Sinister Tales.

Why do you write?

Emotion, color, and experience, along with nearly everything else in existance, fuels my creativity. I write because otherwise my family members would either jump out of their skins or the nearest window.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Peter Matthessien writes like I wish I spoke, in "Far Tortuga" and "Killing Mister Watson."

I also like Mika Waltari's "The Egyptian." I read these books out loud, to taste the words.

Other than that, a partial list includes Barbara Kingsolver, Jerome K. Jerome, Milan Kundera, James Lee Burke, H. P. Lovecraft, earlier Ray Bradbury, Elmore Leonard, Robert McClosky, Nuala O'Faolain, Flanner O'Connor, Maurice Sendak, Thomas Berger, William Goldman, Wally Lamb, John Irving, Patricia Cornwell, Harry Turtledove, Robert Heinlein, Asimov, Kafka, Seuss, Marjory Flack, Ursula Leguin, Hubert Selby and John Steinbeck.

Just a short list, likely to grow as memory kicks in.

Hi Yvette,
Thanks for your kind comments on "Three Dreamers." I appreciate your advice as well - and think I'll trim that dialogue :)

Brett Garcia Rose – Nov 02, 2009

Thanks for going over my story, Fin recently. I've reworked it a bit based on your comments and those of others, and I think it is far better thanks to your suggestions. I have two ready to send out now, and am of course saddened just a little to see them go...

Tara – Sep 28, 2009

Hi Yvette, I've been in Pensacola, and now my brother from New York is visiting, so I've been staying off my computer pretty much. It's good to have a break from it now and then, I guess. Nice to hear from you though. xxoononnie
