Today I'm highlighting a fellow Soul Mate Author who also writes children's books----Tina Susedik!
Welcome, Tina and tell us a little about your children's book, The Hat Peddler.
Since I'm a writer, my husband said I had to tell a story. Years before, while teaching kindergarten, I used "Caps for Sale" by Esphyr Slobodkina as a learning tool for my students. On this day, I re-told the story, but with a Wisconsin twist. The idea for "The Hat Peddler" was born.
I love "Caps for Sale"! Tell us more about your version of this classic!
Jeremiah is a hat peddler during the fur-trading days. While carrying his wares on his head, he travels down the Fox River from Green Bay to the Wisconsin River to Prairie du Chien where the fur traders met for their spring rendezvous. Along the way he loses his hats to various wild animals and sets out to get them back. Bears, skunks, deer and raccoons all set out to make his life miserable. Will he make it to the rendezvous on time to sell his hats?
This sounds like a book my preschoolers would like---we love to explore different animals and compare the wild ones to tame ones. When will I be able to buy a copy?
We're looking at a November release. It will be available through amazon, Barnes & Noble and my website.
Awesome! Here's a little bit about Tina and a look at her romance novel, Riding For Love.
During one of her many moves with her family, she started writing children's stories and took classes with the Institute of Children's Literature. Life and other writing took precedence over her children's books, but now she's returned to her first love.
Tina has been married for over forty years and lives in Wisconsin. After careers in accounting and teaching (not necessarily at the same time), she found her career in writing is what fulfills her the most. When not writing, she loves camping, hiking, photography, reading and playing with her five grandchildren.
She is a member of Romance Writers of America and Wisconsin Romance Writers of America.
She can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Soul Mate Publishing and The Romantic Times.
