Have you seen this???

This is my latest book and tells the story of the Wing Family. This family helped form our nation. The patriarch, John Wing, was born in England and went to Oxford University.

After John died, his family emigrated to the American Colonies and, eventually, to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

This is an illustrated, easy-to-read book that includes an interesting timeline and a glossary of locations.

I hope you enjoy this book. Sonja

Tucson Festival of Books

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be appearing at the Tucson Festival of Books this year on Saturday, March 14!

I’m so excited to have this opportunity to meet you, dear reader. I’ll be in the children’s section for the first few hours of the festival.

I plan to have copies of my Fairies of Carlow series, including The Gilding, The Outsider, and The Commoner. I’ll also have The Voyage available, with all the pretty pictures.

I’m planning to debut my new series about Guinness the Therapy Dog, including Guinness Becomes a Therapy Dog and Guinness Goes to the Library.

I hope to see you there! Sonja

Don’t Forget to Take a Voyage

This easy-to-read illustrated book was recently released and is a wonderful story of one of America’s founding families.

This story tells of the early days of John Wing as he goes to Oxford University in England to study theology.

As a non-conformist minister, John Wing traveled through Europe as he escaped religious prosecution in England under the courts of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I. He intended to travel to the American colonies but died before he could achieve that trip.

His wife and sons made the trip several years later and arrived in Boston, an event that was notable enough to be entered into the diary of John Winthrop, governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Widow Wing and her sons first settled in Plymouth Colony and then moved and helped found Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

You can find a direct link to the ebook or the softcover in the left margin of this website, or you can search for my name, Sonja Danielson, on Amazon.com to see my complete catalog of available titles.

Happy Reading! Sonja

Happy Christmas Eve!

Tonight is the night when Christians observe the birth of Jesus Christ.

It’s also the night that Santa Claus comes down the chimney. He fills stockings and leaves gifts under the Christmas tree.

Santa’s ride is immortalized in the poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. It’s one of my favorite things to read. I’m a sucker for a good story written poetically, which is why I love Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets.

As a gift to you, dear reader, I have put together some deals for the next two days. Effective immediately, The Fairies of Carlow: The Gilding ebook and The Voyage ebook are available for no charge. That’s right. They’re free only until the night of Christmas.

I also scheduled special pricing on The Fairies of Carlow: The Commoner for today and tomorrow only.

Click the links on the left-hand margin of this website, or search for my name, Sonja Danielson, on Amazon.com and you will automatically get the free ebooks or the specially-priced ebook for The Commoner.

I wish you a peaceful and happy Christmas with all the glad tidings of the season.

I wish you a peaceful and happy Hannukah, also, with all the amazing things the holiday brings.

Have a wonderful fun-filled day. Sonja

The Voyage

(c) 2019

Have you had a chance to check out my new book, ‘The Voyage’? It’s an illustrated east-to-read book about the beginnings of one of America’s founding families.

If you’ve been to Cape Cod, Massachusetts you’ve likely driven or ridden through Sandwich. That’s where the Wing Fort House is located. You should take a tour. The house is chock-full of furniture and other belongings owned by the Wing Family.

The kitchen is something special and when you walk in you can imagine the family gathered around the gigantic fireplace. The smell of bread baking or a stew bubbling in a cast iron pot hanging off a hook over the flames fills your imagination. And that’s just the first room!

My ancestor, Stephen Wing, was the man who built the house. History relates this story: He was fearful of an Indian uprising and built a very solid fort home. The Indians in the area turned out to be very nice and helpful, making the home overbuilt. But I bet those 12-inch thick walls helped keep those frigid winter temperatures out of the home!

Time to take a trip! Sonja

The Voyage

I am pleased to announce the working title for my first picture book: The Voyage. This tells the story of one of America’s preeminent families as it travels through Europe and finally lands on the eastern shore of the American Colonies.

The Wing Family landed in Boston and lived at Plymouth Colony before settling on Cape Cod.

I can’t wait for you to read about the Wing family! Sonja
