AuthorHouse Fiction Book: The Tale of The Pumpkin Seed Squad
Illustrated by: Brenda Timms
Having retired from a successful nursing career, Carolyn Mitchell now enthusiastically embraces her life-long interest in writing and poetic expression.
Carolyn has always appreciated the versatility of the English language with its colorful colloquialisms and finds particular pleasure in articulating various idioms and dialects through rhyme.
Children’s literature has had special appeal to Carolyn over the years as she found reading to her children and grandchildren to be one of the purest delights in life.
This Christmas story allows her to combine her passions for children, writing, and the holiday of her heart into one glorious venture.
Carolyn lives on a farm near Hickman, N e b r a ska, with her husband Daryl.
There they raised 3 daughters — Becky, Christy, and Mandy, and now delight in visits from their 5 grandchildren — Christian, Brandon, Austin, Kirstin, and Haley.
Swooping down to the hill approaching our house,
The reindeer caught sight of a frisky field mouse.
And those reindeer, being a fun-loving bunch,
Quickly posted a sign saying, “WE”RE OUT TO LUNCH”!!
Springing back into action, they leaped to the chase
With the startled little mouse barely leading the race.
Having no time to unhitch the sleigh full of gifts,
Santa clung to his seat as they plowed through the drifts!
