John Yewell

From the website of John Yewell: "I was born in the six-room Santa Clara Valley Hospital in Santa Paula, California. It's now an old folks home, so maybe I'll go out through the same door I came in". 
"I grew up as a simple southern California surfer boy ten miles down the road in Ventura".
"Who knows when, or where, or why the need to write things down will first strike. I'd been going to the mountains since I was eight. But in the summer of 1971, when I was 17, something special happened. My cousin and I crossed the Sierra east to west over some pretty rugged, mostly trackless, terrain. It was then I first experienced how vital a sense of place was to me. When I returned, I started writing stories".
