  2. Joan, thank you so much for the free critique. You did an excellent job. This was an early story of mine that I wrote as an extension of some stories written by Dr. J.C. Brumfield for the Radio Kids radio show that was on the air from the mid forties to the mid-sixties. My father in law was the music director of the show. Dr. B (as Dr. Brumfield was called) wrote stories about kids that took being a Christian seriously and really tried to live it out in their daily lives. As a result they had lots of great adventures. I started a series inspired by those stories using the granddaughter of one of the original characters as my new main character. Your help in critiquing my story will help me get these characters out to a newer and wider audience.


    • Dear Steve,
      You’re very welcome. I’m glad that you found my free critique helpful. What an interesting story about Dr. J.C. Brumfield for the Radio Kids program. Good luck with getting your quality characters published and into the hands and hearts of children who will enjoy them. Do something good for you!
