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.
