Ronda Gaynor, author of “Debbie the Duck” based her story on a real duck. “Debbie was a funny duck and I felt the things she did were interesting and that her story should be told.” The story is about a duck who thought she was a dog. Kids of all ages have enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.
Ronda lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is her
first book. She enjoys going to schools and libraries to share her book
with children. Rick Wells of KOTV-6 interviewed Ronda about writing and
publishing the book and it can be seen at this website.
Ronda Gaynor is the author of the children’s book, Debbie the Duck. Ronda loves children and feels reading is absolutely necessary for their development. As a child and teenager, she was an avid reader. It was common to see her reading as she was walking to and from school. Reading during class (biology and math) was a common complaint of some of her teachers. Her mother felt she ruined her eyes reading with a flashlight under her bed covers at night. She lived in many places after the age of ten Ohio, Georgia, Washington D.C., New Hampshire, Nebraska, and several towns in Texas, Big Spring, El Paso, Grand Prairie and Laredo. But always returned to her hometown of Sperry, Oklahoma and continues to dwell in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Businesses her family engaged in were farming, running a dairy, raising and breeding Appaloosa horses, raising pigs, rabbits, chickens, cattle, building and racing dune buggies and operating a custom butcher shop. Ronda began her own business career at the famous Mayo Hotel in Tulsa. Accounting is her favorite and current occupation but she has also worked in photography, aluminum products such as building screens, installing storm windows and doors and she worked as a plumber and has her mechanical and plumbing journeyman licenses. In her younger years, Ronda enjoyed scuba diving, water skiing, snow skiing, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, and camping. She continues to enjoy traveling having been in most of the U. S. States, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Germany, France, Amsterdam and Italy.
Two years after her mom’s tragic death, Rissa is finally ready to get on with her life. But someone else has different plans for her…
First time author Ursula Gorman’s passion for reading led her to start writing down story ideas that she thought would make a great book. This habit led her to write her first novel, Old Acquaintances. Mystery, suspense and intrigue have always been her book style of choice and so it was only natural she follow the same path in her writing. She credits the Lord for allowing her to pursue her dreams of writing and for her supportive family. Ursula lives with her husband and two children in the Missouri Ozarks.
