Hello my name is Rhonda Patton. I am a wife, mother of two and a graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. I am a children’s book writer of Ted and Raymond books, Inspiring Kids to be Better. I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) I am also a member of ASMSG (Authors Social Media Support Group) and also located on the Authors Database (Authors DB). 

The famous actress Kristin Davis of “Sex and the City” has featured us inMOMTASTIC, “African Safari with Ted and Raymond" was a book I researched from a challenge I had from our viewers. My husband Chester McDaniel is my illustrator. Together we make Ted and Raymond who they are today.  

We have books that focus on social issues as bullying for young children to understand, one that teaches being a winner doesn’t always mean being number one, we have a book that teaches kids not to be afraid of the dentist, and one to chase their dreams. 


Names of our books are: Dylan & the Croak Orleans GangAfrican Safari with Ted and RaymondABC’s with Ted and RaymondRaymond goes to the DentistGrayson the Bully Frog with Ted and RaymondThe Croak 500Simpson the slimy snake slithers sidewaysTed and Raymond’s Christmas Tree, and
