Robson Ranch Arizona Write On Authors Gift Library with Books
The Robson Ranch Arizona Write On authors gift library with books. Ronda Olson, Carolyn Wittman, and Eddie Peters are three of the numerous library volunteers. Recently, these three welcomed and thanked Robson Ranch Arizona resident authors who presented them with donated copies of their books.
The authors were impressed with the efficient running and set up of the library. All three stated they love books! Both Eddie and Ronda agreed with Carolyn that books can transport you anywhere. Ronda is a retired librarian from Roosevelt School District in Phoenix. Carolyn was a middle school librarian in District 20, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Eddie volunteered at the public library in Cave Creek.
We asked how they came to take on the library task. Ronda explained the former head of the library, Nancy Watt, resigned. An email went to all residents asking for volunteers. These three along with others heeded the call.
Members of our Write On writer’s workshop who donated books were: Bensonetta (Bennie) Lane, Judiann (Judi) Lewinski, Bob Rice, Jaine Toth, and Suzanne Williams joined by former Robson resident Pam Witt. Susanne Perry donated but was unable to join in person. Other authors unable to attend will also be dropping off donated books.

The Red Wagon Heroes, by Judiann Lewinski. Illustrated by the author, pictures and text teach children simple strategies for how to be kind which, in turn, makes them heroes.
It All Started in Africa, by Suzanne Bowman Williams. A rhythm and rhyme picture book for young children tells one family’s history, beginning in Africa up to the present day. It conveys to readers why it’s important to make good choices and have the courage and determination to follow through. This is the story of Suzanne’s own family and the power of their choices that positively changed the trajectory of their family’s history.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side: with Zebras, by Pam Witt. An advocate for the preservation of wild animals, Pam’s informative and inspirational presentations are now being put into book form in a format that engages young minds. The first publication is the zebra book. The book features Pam’s three Boston Terriers. The book takes readers through the animal family and social life, anatomical structure, and eating habits; a comprehensive yet easily comprehended compendium of zoological information. Pam’s book on rhinos will soon be available.
Fugitive Witness, by Bob Rice. An average young woman, who can barely get through life on her own, finds herself collateral damage in a mob hit. Her husband is killed, and she is being chased…or is she…by the mob? the government? local police? She does not know.
Runaway, by Susanne Perry. A runaway is found dead in an alley. Who is she? Why is she living on the street? The answers lie deep within the community of street dwellers, often ignored or invisible. To find the young woman’s killer, Sergeant Liz Jordan and Officer Kyle Connors must earn the trust of people who don’t trust the establishment. Delving deep into a world of uncertainty and danger, the investigation uncovers a web of deceit. Runaway is the first novel in the City Streets Trilogy.
Dizzy Izzy & The Red Witch: Memories of My Parents, by Jaine Ellen Toth. Per author Marlene Macke: “Jaine Toth has written a loving tribute to her parents and family. The stories are endearing, poignant, witty, honest, and insightful. You will laugh out loud and shed a tear or two. And when you finish it, you’ll think, ‘And I thought my family was eccentric!’”
Typically, residents can check books out at the library using an honor system. These signed books donated by the authors will need to be checked out in writing. The checkout form is available in the library.
