About Yvonne

Yvonne Tillapaugh is a mother of four and a grandmother of 8. For years, she and her late husband dedicated their lives to helping troubled youth, founding Denver Street School, a private Christian high school, and the national ministry, Street School Network, to empower individuals across cities.

As a licensed Practical Nurse for 25 years, Yvonne served both in Oklahoma and Colorado. Her passion for music and drama led her to teach various creative subjects in private Christian schools.

With a heart for storytelling, she has written and directed numerous dramas and musicals. One of her most impactful experiences was directing the Passion Play of Denver for ten years.

“My novel writing journey began many years ago when I started writing the novelization of my experiences at the coffee house, Jesus on Main Street, in Denver. I began writing other stories and joined an online writing forum. Those early novels just sat in my laptop, which had broken until my son-in-law recovered them from the hard drive.

When my sister, Rebecca Cole, announced one day that she had decided to write a novel, I started thinking maybe I should do something with all those things I had written and squirreled away to work on sometime in the future. I sat beside her on her couch and pulled out the unedited manuscripts and started working.

She self-published her first novel, Sunday School Sweethearts, in June 2022, and I followed her with my first, Angel in the Street.”
