About

I’ve been a story-teller all my life.

No matter how technical the situation, I always ferret out the human element. “The thing I like about your writing is when I’m finished reading, I’ve learned about the person or the situation, not just what he does.” That’s one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received and it came from the blessed lips of an old farmer friend.

Call me old-fashioned or “old school”, but I learned how to listen to and tell a story a long time ago. It carried over onto the stage, where from age 7 I was writing and singing songs. Today, I write and sing originalĀ music with my wife, Linda. We perform out of Memphis, Tennessee as Yancy & Yancy And The Gooduns.

Out in the field I’ve made a living doing what Mark Twain described as, “the writer’s profession of last respite before the poor house”: Agricultural editing.

If Mr. Twain were alive today, I’d ask him to fill in from time-to-time on this blog. Here I’ll write about the things that are really important: music, family, farming, faith, and friends. Pull up a figurative rocking chair and visit with me.

As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read. Best to you.

Come see us,

Cecil.
