“Racing the Beast”

I forgot to post this in February! (Oops. February was kind of blur of snow days and books fairs and kids’ homework for me.) Anyway, a story that I wrote over four years ago finally made the pages of Highlights for Kids magazine. It’s called “Racing the Beast,” and it’s based on my long, loooong history of almost missing the school bus. You can click here to read the text part. Or check it out at your local library to see it all pretty with illustrations!

In related fun-ness, I received an engraved pewter plate for “author of the month” from Highlights for the story. Woo! :-)
