Winsome Bingham

Hi! Welcome!

My name is Winsome Bingham and I write stories for children and families. I am the author of SOUL FOOD SUNDAY (illustrated by C. G. Esperanza), a Coretta Scott King (CSK) Honor Book for illustrations, a New York Times Best Book of the Year, and the medal winner of the Connecticut Book Award.

I am a soul food connoisseur, master cook, a US Army war veteran. I received both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education, technology, and writing. Specifically, an MFA in Writing For Children and Young Adults! I have more than 15 years of teaching experience. I’m an advocate for literacy and great books and stories.

You can find me cooking up soul food on Sundays or taking THE WALK to the polls with friends and family. I will tell you that I live on a fictional army post called FORT GOODE where you are always WELCOME.

Check out WELCOME TO FORT GOODE, Book 1 in the FORT GOODE series published by Reycraft Books.

Winsome’s second picture book, THE WALK, illustrated by E. B. Lewis, is out now!
