I am delighted to welcome author Winnifred Tataw to my blog this week. I discovered Winnie through her blog https://winsbooks.blog
It was the Built by Us crafting films that first captivated me. I just love watching Winnie’s demonstrations as she is so warm and joyful – always smiling. I have been amazed by her energy and productivity. Winnie has incredible talent as an artist, crafter, and novelist. So, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate Winnie on the publication of Lone Star this week and to introduce her to you.
What inspired you to start writing?
My imagination and my mother. I am always imagining things and creating things in my head and on paper with my art. One day my mother asked me why I didn’t write it down and I took off from there!
When and where do you prefer to write?
I love to write on rainy days with a warm cup of tea or marshmallow hot chocolate. I prefer to write in the daytime, and edit at night. That is the new writing process I’ve started and it works great for me!
What is your favourite book?
The Giver from Lois Lowry. I read this book back in middle (grade) school and fell in love with it. I’ve read it a couple more times after that and each time the story gets better and better.
If you could give your younger writing self any advice what would it be?
Keep dreaming! Your imagination and determination are going to take you far. As long as you keep pushing through, what you envision is going to come forth. You got this Win-Win! (And invest in a very good editor!)
And finally, tell us about your most recent book and where we can find it.
My book, The Lone Star Child comes out on December 5, 2020! It is the third book in my young adult fantasy series The Gods’ Scion. It is a tale about revenge and loneliness. There is the theme of coming to terms with past wounds that have plagued many of the book’s characters for years.
The Lone Star Child by Winnifred Tataw
Ophiuchus was cursed to imprisonment in space for wanting to share their gifts with the world. For millennia, they have been alone and forgotten. But Caro, the Space Acolyte, is their new chance at freedom. They’ve had a long time to think about what they’ll do once they’re freed. Which, with Caro’s help, will soon become a reality. Finally, they will be able to crush all those who ever forsake them in the past. But this time around, it will be different. This time they won’t show any mercy. Every person that ever abandoned them will feel their wrath. The Gods called them a monster. Well now, they’ve got one.
