I am Rhonda Patton a Children’s Book writer. It is not my job. It is my passion. My husband is my illustrator and we have 9 books out at amazon, books-a-million, createspace, barnes and noble, in every part of the world. I have worked in a daycare to help two year olds learn. I have had sales experience, billing, and office manager positions. I however want to make a career out of my inspirational writing to help kids better themselves and others around them. A Shreveport residence, a mother, a wife, and a daughter. I have a wonderful husband who is the illustrator of the Ted and Raymond Series as well as my co-writer in Searching for the Unknown and Spirits of ChesterVille General Store. I started my love for writing at an early age of 13. I loved to write even if it didn’t make sense. I started my writing in serious love poems and different things. Then in 2000 I wrote my first Ted and Raymond book that turned into a series, “The Croak 500”. I didn’t know that I would have a series until two years ago. As I researched for my husband to do voiceover work I came across some awesome people and then my book showed up. With NO animation or characters my husband made the book come alive. Then I was inspired to do more and more stories. And well…. Here I am. Inspiring kids to be better!
