Married novelists Yvonne Navarro and Weston Ochse say that balancing their creative careers with their home life is easy for them, because they both understand the process and pressures of being a professional writer.

They also each have their own private working space in their Sierra Vista home, which they have individualized to support their different approaches to their craft.

Both will be attending the 2012 Tucson Festival of Books, to take part in panels and to meet their readers and fans.

The Festival occurs March 10-11, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the University of Arizona campus, bringing together over 500 published authors for readings, workshops, demonstrations and book signings.
