Goodreads asked Donna Maguire:

What are you currently working on?

Donna Maguire I have several new books soon to be published. The initial book, "The Wacky World of Silly Willy Winston," was created to introduce young readers to our unlikely hero. Future books in the series focus on Silly Willy Winston as he uses the biggest ears ever and a super large snout to take on a number of secret identities.

Each of Silly Willy Winston's secret identities uses his super powers to take his friends on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance while facing new challenges, solving nature's mysteries, exploring new lands and navigating the open seas. These secret identities include Super Snout, Inspector Snout, Explorer Snout and Pirate Snout.

Available now is "Silly Willy Winston in the Adventures of Super Snout - Have NO Fear." In this book our steadfast friend throws on his cape and grabs his mask to help friends over come fears and face new challenges.

Other books in the works for release between September and November are:

Silly Willy Winston in the Adventures of Inspector Snout - The case of the missing tadpole

The Adventures of Silly Willy Winston as Explorer Snout - A tale of two deserts

Silly Willy Winston in the Adventures of Pirate Snout - Mystery in the desert and on the seas

The most exciting news is that the story lines for three more books are already incubating. Inspector Snout will investigate disappearances due to migration and hibernation. Explorer Snout will track down new species discovered in 2014. Pirate Snout will venture to uncover booty associated with sea legends and myths.

Of course the new story lines can change as it is my hope to write what my young readers want to read about. You might be interested to know that Inspector Snout, Explorer Snout and Pirate Snout were the result of suggestions from a smart, compassionate young reader from Reading, PA.
