Books

Welcome to Winsome Tales!

Winsome is defined as sweetly innocent or charming; winning; engaging.

Winsome is the perfect description for the modern day fairy tales written by ILIA.  The fairy tales are charming and so entertaining that you never know what is going to happen next - you'll be eagerly turning the pages to find out.

In the fashion of the days gone by, ILIA writes original modern day fairy tales that are enjoyed by young and old alike. Youngsters like the stories because of the adventures and fantastical occurrences; adults like the stories because of the meaning behind each story and the engaging style of writing.

The original fairy tales were folk tales created by women and passed down orally from one generation to the next.  The tales were told while doing tedious tasks such as spinning yarn.  The tales told were of great imagination, inventive, original and fantastical. The fairy tales did not always have a happy ending. Sometimes old fairy tales by women weren't always pleasant, hardships and other unpleasantries were spoken of.

In a time period of political censorship, when women had very few rights, fairy tales were one way that they could make their opinions known.  Women spoke about being abused, using their wits to work out situations and of the time period.  It was from this early beginning that true fairy tales were actually allegories - which means to speak so as to imply something other.

ILIA creates original allegory style fairy tales that speak about modern day events.  

Ti Ana and The Giant

Ti Ana and The Giant

Ti Ana and The Giant is a marvelously entertaining book about the Land of Lush, now Mush. A delightful story about a land that used to be full of abundance and creativity but turned into despair and hopelessness.  "That's just the way it is," was how most villagers believed the situation to be - except for one: Ti Ana who goes on an adventure to save her land.
