RingerWorks is the collected work of Ted Ringer —
author, artist, and teacher. Scribbler and doodler.

Here you will find Books for Big Kids, some for smaller, ebooks, illustrations, cartoons, blogs, and unidentified objects, flying and otherwise. On this site you will find the kind of stories and pictures that will refresh your view of reality and, at the appropriate time, ease the transition from your busy day into the realm of dreams.

Nothing scary or disturbing (I apologize for the vampires), and, certainly, nothing boring or inconsequential. I’m talking about real stories of adventure, romance, and a seriousness of purpose that doesn’t know what serious is. As if that weren’t enough, there are blogs, especially Words and Writing, links, lists, and free samples.

Come on in. I’m giving you the works. Thanks for visiting.
