ANNOUNCING: More Dogsledding Adventure!
Dog Driven coming in 2019
From Publishers Weekly—Ann Rider at HMH has bought, in an exclusive submission, Dog Driven, a middle grade novel by Ice Dogs author Terry Lynn Johnson. A 14-year-old girl fears that she is losing her sight to Stargardt's Disease, as her sister did. Despite her sight impairment, she enters a dogsled race that follows the historic Canadian dogsled mail along Lake Superior, with unexpected results. Publication is planned for fall 2019; Caryn Wiseman at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the deal for world rights.

Sled Dog School is a Bank Street's Best Books of the Year and a Scholastic Book Fairs selection.

Falcon Wild is a nominee for Ontario's Forest of Reading Book Awards. This is Canada's largest Book Award for young readers—super exciting for me to be on this list for the first time!

Overboard! is a Cybils Award finalist, a Beehive Award 2019 nominee (Utah State) and made the Horned Toad Tales 2018-19 list (Cypress-Fairbanks District, Texas).
