Poetry and Manuscripts

Neher began writing poetry about age 12.  Her first poem was a class assignment in Junior High School.

In 1975 she began writing poetry about the sport of auto racing and has compiled her work in an unpublished book entitled Pit Passages; she has written circa 100 poems about the sport. Neher also writes poetry on a variety of other subjects.  Neher has no plans to publish her auto racing poetry.

Neher is working on two manuscripts entitled The Secrets of God from the Book of Job and the Twenty-Two Factor. Neher analyzes the Holy Bible on a logical, linguistic level in these two manuscripts and looks at the existing words of the Bible in a different way than does main-stream religion. Neher does not anticipate publishing either of these books.

Neher, a native and life-long resident of Indiana, moved to Arkansas in June 2006 for warmer weather and lower cost of living, and, as of 2010 is living in Nevada.
