The Products of a Little Imagination

See what can happen when you put your imagination to work? Your creativity takes wings and begin to fly, manifesting itself. In my case as a writer/author of books for children and teens, my imagination is always in work mode, playing around with different characters, ideas and situations. I envision it and then I sit down and write it; with everything beginning from scratch. Creating a beginning, middle and an end; steps taking me through draft after draft as my imagination comes to life in the form of written paragraphs, scenes, dialogue and letting my characters show themselves.
Drafts and edits are the name of the game, you have to make it perfect and concise because you representing the literary world while your book represents you…the author. So I say, when writing…Give it your all! Don’t skip a beat!
For me, this is what it all about. I love it! I love writing! I love being creative! But most of all, I love sprinkling bits and pieces of me all around in the form of books that entertain, inspire and amuse. This will be my legend because it has always been my dream.

Yes indeed, I am still doing it up today with my book promoting, but I think this will be the last one for today; after all, I need to save some for tomorrow. I can do that because I have a lot of books to promote. I’m just trying to reach as many readers as I can because I want children all over this earth reading my worthwhile, good-read books.
What is triple play? I am referring to the OMG! books that I’ve created. If you purchase this triple play, you will get a slew of short stories. Great reading for bedtime or those lazy afternoons and weekends when you can’t find anything else to do. After all, not everybody wants to spend their free time playing computer games. Sometimes you want something to spark your imagination and make you wonder and think. So indulge in a good book and one written by me…Author Winona Rasheed. After all, I write strictly for children, teens and tweens. All because they inspire me to do so.
The OMG! Books collage by pizap small.
Triple play includes 3 books with titles such as: OMG! Ragdoll Talez, OMG!Talez with Tails, OMG! More Readz for Me Each book has multiple short stories in them. You will find a story about Thomas Turkey, which is just in time for Thanksgiving. Another is about Slowpoke and Speedy; that title came from a remake of an oldie but good book from back in the day about the tortoise and the hare, which I liked when I was young. I just updated it and put a spin on it. These story listings are in the OMG! Tales with Tails book.
All three books sell on Amazon. Print and ebook versions are available.

How Loud Can You Roar?

lioness 2



Can you tell the difference between a lion and a lioness? Do you know what role each play in their wild habitat? If you don’t know, it is time to do a little research to find out. I bet you thought I was going to tell you….wrong! It’s fun and entertaining looking up information. I know because I do it all the time. The stuff you can find out is just amazing.
That’s how my book, “Kumani: A New Home for Her Cubs” came about. I had to do a little research, especially after watching a TV show on lions. That sparked my interest and my imagination. These wild beast are fascinating and so regal. You should look the information up. Meantime, why not pick up up the book about Kumani, she might even spark your imagination and interest to do the research. By the way, Kumani is a lioness, she is not the king of the jungle. In her mindset, she is the queen of the jungle and wants to be treated as such. She is tired of having to do all the work. If you do the research, you will find out what all a lioness is responsible for in the wild. However, this is a book of fiction so things are a bit exaggerated, after all the story comes from my imagination. Trust me, it is a delightful, fun and entertaining read for young readers. Come on, meet Kumani and her friend Bantu. Read about their encounters as they go about trying to find a place where Kumani can be treated like the queen that she is.

So, how loud can you roar? Read and have fun with this book.


The Cat’s Meow


Well, I give up! Our big kitty is a mess and a half. She was following my husband all around the house this morning and getting very excited when he walked toward the front or back door. Needless to say, the cat was being playfully teased because she was ready to venture outside. But you know me, I didn’t want her to go outside. Guess who won. It wasn’t me. So I go get this pretty pink leash that I had bought for her and decided to fasten her to the chair on the front porch. I was not in the mood to go chasing after a rumbustious kitty. I thought I was being smart……wrong! I walked away and when I came back about 15 minutes later to check on her, the leash was on the porch and the cat was gone. Dang, she took it off! Can you believe that? Well, it happened.
She likes going under the flower bush in the front yard and that’s where she went. She would not come out either when I called her. So I go get the man of the house; she came out when she saw my husband. Go figure! When my husband disappeared to go around the back, she tried to follow him. I tried to catch her then since she was out in the open. Let me tell you….Kitty is fast on her paws. She is much quicker than me; you should have seen her darting out of my reach. I finally gave up when she went back under the bush…way under and out of sight. I guess she says it is too nice of a day to be in the house and I’m not coming back in until I get ready…. or until my husband gets her. I’m just going to leave her alone. That’s why I am on this blog before 12 o’clock noon. Maybe she will want back in when she gets hungry.
Yeah me….guess what, kitty was at the door wanting back in after her little front yard rendezvous. I wonder what frightened her out there. Yep, the world must look pretty big and scary outside the walls of this house. She is now chillin’ on the comfort of our bed, safe from whatever made her ready to come back in. Cats, you gotta love em!

Have you read my new book? This is a good time to promote it since I am doing a little kitty talk. “My Happy New Home,” a picture book for youngsters. They will love it and so will you!
