Deborah M. Prum's humorous young adult novel, FATTY IN THE BACK SEAT, is about 15-year-old Cuss who is not a criminal. Well, maybe a slight criminal in the state of New York where he accidentally burns down his neighbor's barn. The judge tells Cuss to behave or he'll wide up behind bars. For Cuss, behaving is almost impossible.
FIRST KISS AND OTHER CAUTIONARY TALES is a collection of Prum's essays most of which originally aired on NPR-member stations. In these essays, you will: Learn about: spring-loaded toilet seats in the Pisa Airport (a creation of the Devil). Find out why Googling "How to Pick Up a Chick" is not the best strategy for determining the best way to scoop up live poultry. Discover the ancient secret of an Italian grandmother's deadly chicken soup recipe. (Hint: it's all in the feet.)
RATS, BULLS AND FLYING MACHINES is Prum's funny and anecdotal young adult novel about the Renaissance and Reformation.
Prum's award-winning fiction appeared twice in The Virginia Quarterly Review and in many other journals. Excerpts from her novel-in-progress The String Theory of Love have been included in several anthologies. She's written on the craft of writing for both The Writer magazine and The Writer's Handbook.
