A Summerland writer’s story about food is in the new anthology of stories, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Multitasking Mom’s Survival Guide.

Brandy Lynn Maslowski’s story, Snack Attack, is one of the 101 short, inspirational stories in the collection.

Snack Attack is a humorous 11/2-page story about meals and snacks.

Maslowski said she had originally titled it, Pass the Sugar, Sugar.

She learned of the call for submissions for the anthology while she was the editor of the Funds for Writers newsletter.

When she saw the description of the anthology, she wanted to enter.

“I was excited when I saw the title,” she said.

Maslowski, a former firefighter, is also a quilt teacher, judge and host of Canadian Quilt Talk. She is also publishing her children’s picture book, Kristy’s Quilt, which was released earlier this year.

There are more than 250 titles in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. They have been translated into more than 40 languages and have sold more than 100 million copies.
