     Winona is the Founder of Kiras Publishing, LLC. Kiras Publishing was birthed out of Winona's own personal struggle of trying to get her first book published, which almost played out in a courtroom drama. It is because of the challenges Winona faced as a first-time author; she decided that no author should have to be discouraged during the publishing process because of someone else's lack of integrity when it comes to handling your book project. Kiras Publishing was established to come alongside aspiring authors to guide & equip them with the needed resources and tools, so they can transition from having a completed manuscript to becoming a Published Author!

The goal for this foundation is to encourage and inspire mothers to rise above the challenges and know that raising a child(ren) and living a successful life is possible. Winona is the mother of a 22- year daughter.
