Local author’s story appears in new book

By Wayne Gates –

Hannah Yoder of Russellville is Brown County’s latest published author.
Her short story “The Kroger Queen” is included in the latest book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series titled “Best Mom Ever”.  The book is filled with stories about mothers.
Yoder recently graduated from high school and spends her time writing and working with horses.
She said the inspiration for her story came from a trip to the grocery store with her mother.
“I sort of wrote it on a whim.  I was kind of late at night and I was looking on the Chicken Soup website and I saw that they had a book on mothers and I had just had an experience where I had taken my mother shopping,” Yoder said.
“I don’t normally go shopping because it’s not my thing, but it was an interesting experience and that’s what I wrote about.”
Yoder said she was excited to be a published author.
“This is the first article that I’ve gotten published.  I’ve won a few contests over the years, but this is the only one that I’ve submitted and it got published, so hopefully it will grow from here,” she said.
“It was really exciting for me.  I’m glad that I got the opportunity to get my work out there so people can see the type of writing I do.”
“”Best Mom Ever” now available.  More details can be found at www.chickensoup.com.
