Book: ORLY

Author Lisa Johnston Winfrey is an Army Brat whose dad was a pilot. As a child, he moved 42 times in 17 years. She is a loving wife, mother, and Nana. Her family (as you will be able to tell from the stories) are the most important part of her life. She has held a variety of teaching positions over the span of her career and writing this book was way outside her comfort box.

Readers have been demanding a second book with more unbelievable situations for their enjoyment. When Lisa Ann is not teaching, she is coaching Hip Hop dance – ORLY. Coaching those wonderful young ladies is considered one of her greatest accomplishments. What many people don’t realize is the home lives of these teenagers range from great to horrific. Sometimes the practice times and competitions are the only areas of their lives that are calm and structured. Coach Winfrey was hoping to sell enough books to be able to lighten the load of the financial burden placed on the families of the dancers. She will have to wait and see if that is a possibility.

She says, “This book is a collection of funny stories that will make you say, ‘Oh, really?’ when you read them. The title is slang for ‘oh really’. We’ve told the stories over and over again and one of my friends begged me to write them. The stories are true, which makes them that much more unbelievable.

The book is on Kindle.  I think it is $3 for a download and $7 for a hard copy. The reviews on Kindle are super. My favorite thing so far about selling the book has been that a student told me he bought the book to give to a sick relative and he was able to read it to her and make her smile.”
