For the Kids
Today in Susan's Extras I'm posting one of the first children's stories I ever wrote, Freezer Boy. The original title was much longer, I Have Corn on My Forehead and Peas on My Knees. A critique partner suggested that title gave too much of the story away so I changed it. Many adults, especially moms, have told me how true to life and funny the story is. I bring a lot of personal experience to it. Having grown up in a big family - there were nine siblings - I know how kids really are particularly when Mom and Dad are out of the room. I hope you and your kids or grandkids enjoy it!
