A few months ago at Tales in the Village I told this new story, THE SMOKER. Thanks to Jessica and Bart Robinson I have a video of it - so I can share the story with you.
I tell many childhood stories which capture memories of the times, places and people I loved in North Carolina. But we know that not all childhood moments are sugar plums and sweetness. Children live with adults - and adults often make mistakes.
In this story I ice the cake with sweet tidbits before I give you the real-life twist.
Maybe a few of your childhood memories have a twist or two.
