Black Historical Fiction | Inspirational Non Fiction | Poetry

Hi everyone! My name is Yecheilyah (ee-SEE-li-yah) but everyone calls me EC for short, and I am the author and founder of The PBS Blog. My name is Hebrew and means Yah Khai (Yah Lives). 

You can find me sitting quietly in the corner reading a book, listening to music, and observing the people and space around me. I enjoy laughing, movie nights, good conversation, coffee, and when I’m watching my shows on Netflix, I like to do so with a glass of wine. I seek to provoke thought among the limited ways we think and feel and to inspire others the same as others have inspired me. My motto is to “Paint poetic justice against the backdrop of heavy keystrokes.” To paint poetic justice means to use my writing as an underground railroad to freedom. If people can’t be liberated in their own lives, I hope that my books can provide a road-map. This isn’t easy to do considering the heavy misinformation, deception, and religious ideologies that have enslaved us for so long. These are the heavy keystrokes.

  2. Hi!
    I read what you wrote. When you mentioned the black men accused of raping a hairstylist, it reminded me of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD which was based on a real bogus case.
    Anyway, I wanted to thank you for following my blog Reflections. Welcome!
    Nice meeting you,
    Janice

  3. I have just read this page of your blog and can’t wait to read more! Very interested in your books as well. Also, I think your name is beautiful and should not be shortened! No ever pronounces my name right, Elissa, just Melissa without the M. Or down south my family calls me Lissa Beth. Looking forward to reading more.

  4. One of the many things I love about reading so many blogs is reading the About. It says a lot more about the author of the blog than one might imagine. For instance, I know several important things about you now. You are laid back. You don’t like to waste words saying nothing. I imagine you’re probably a good listener. I found that good listeners are a wealth of information. Ask them the right questions, and really show interest, and you may get some great information in return. You also like to read. You like to write, and you have a lovely name, which you’d prefer people pronounce correctly or call you by your “letters.” Happy to make you acquaintance!

  5. It is a shame that Bart Simpson didn’t have a few words with The Donald’s wife before that speech. Okay, so we know she didn’t write it but she was the one reading it and of course taking credit…

  6. I was really happy to discover your blog via the comment you left on Kristen Lamb’s blog. I especially like your comments regarding writing in a way that reveals deeper meaning than the words left on the page. I’m reading Ben Okri at the moment, who is an absolute MASTER at this, so I’m definitely excited to read your work.
