Born in Louisville, KY to parents of Anglo-Scotch-Irish, and Lithuanian descent, Yantiss began his creative activities as a musician and singer.  He started piano lessons at age 5, and began writing poems and songs at 8 years of age. While still in high school he began playing guitar professionally, and over the years shared the stage with such notable figures as Dickey Betts and Berry Oakley.

His first love of writing poems continued on over the years, and branched out into fiction, beginning with some attempts at fantasy, in the tradition of "Lord Of The Rings." In 1993 he began writing classic detective mysteries, based on the character Sherrod Reynard Colsne, in the transatlantic and cumulative tradition of Sherlock Holmes and Nero Wolfe. "Murder By Bequest," his inaugural effort, first appears in publication via as a Kindle e-book.

There are several more in what is a growing series, with "Code Name, Erelim," a novella, "The Golden Dart" and "The Weerwolf Problem," both short stories, all Kindle books. Coming are "Sa Kainitan," based in The Philippines, and "The Seiðr Affair," a bone chiller about a doomsday computer weapon.
