Sleep Traveler

Book 1 Ning, Dog, & and Boss

I wrote these Sleep Traveler Books because my daughter , Dawnzella, said she could not remember who her three imaginary playmates were, but she remembered their names; Ning, Dog, and Boss!

She was such a feisty, happy child playing on her sun porch lined with boxes full of toys. When she went for her nap, they were all picked up, and when she saw my neat job, she cried, “You ruined it!” as she dumped them all out on the floor.

I created characters to match the names, Ning is a Siamese Cat, Dog is a Shaggy Dog, and Boss is an African Gray Parrot.

When Little Dawnie went to sleep at night, she woke up next to her Dog and they went on adventures together with Ning and Boss.

Their first adventure was at the Zoo. As Ning pointed out, the Zoo is closed at night and the animals are asleep! But Dog said, “When we go to sleep we can go anywhere and do anything we want to, and we cannot get hurt. The animals will be happy to have company and they can talk to us, too!

Come along on their first adventure at the Zoo, talking to the animals and swimming with the whales, and have a food fight in the food court. Come on, you know you always wanted to talk to the animals!

The little girl in the pajamas standing between her imaginary playmates, on the cover of the book is Dawnzella aka “Little Dawnie,” our feisty daughter! the size is perfect for reading to children.

To enjoy this book just click on the picture of the cover and it will take you to Amazon where you can purchase them in eBook or paperback. Thank you so much for reading them and leaving me a review.

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.
