Dear Reader,

I write about dogsledding because I want to share the magic of it. I want to show how it feels to glide silent down a snow-packed trail, the runners shushing under your feet, clouds of breath rising in the air, the cold wind on your face. But the best part for a musher is watching the JOY of the dogs. The magic of dogsledding comes from the relationship a musher has with their team.

In DOG DRIVEN, you'll meet McKenna, who's not only attempting a race through the Canadian wilderness, she's also hiding a dangerous secret — she's losing her vision. Can McKenna's commitment to her dogs help her through? Read the book to find out. I hope you feel the magic too.

Happy adventures,
