Of all of the hockey tournaments we’ve been to, my son’s Lake Placid tournament by far was the most memorable.

“Magical” as my eleven year old says.

From sled dog rides, to pond hockey skating, skating on the Olympic oval and having the team play on the 1980 Miracle on ice arena (can’t count the number of times my kids have seen that movie!) we were in non-stop awe of it all. I knew I could write something really exciting because of all the excitement we experienced in the beautiful Adirondack village.

For the second book, I wanted to challenge myself and take my writing outside of my own experiences.

We blend hockey, history and mystery this time around! The first story centered around a selfish hockey player.

This next one tackles the problem of the pushy parent.

So hopefully kids will be sharing this one with their parents!
