Future 2018 president of WWW Carmen Peone has just released her newest young adult novel, Hannah’s Journey, on October 1 2017! The book is the second in her Gardner Sibling Trilogy and maps the story of sixteen-year-old Hannah Gardner and her passion for horse racing.
Set against the breathtaking panorama of the northeastern mountains in Washington State and pulling along the traditions of the Sinyekst Native People, Hannah’s experience reminds readers that rebellious spirits are both beautiful and yet can be part of a trap of our own making. Hannah must find that balance in order to discover who she is and how the path of her life could possibly lead to the love and freedom that she feels when riding her horse.
Carmen lives on the Colville Indian Reservation in Northeast Washington with her husband, dogs and horses and is the mother of four sons and grandmother to seven. She has been learning the Arrow Lakes langugage and the Sinyekst / Arrow Lakes culture from a tribal elder, and also competes in horse-riding competitions such as the local Extreme Challenge. Carmen writes on her blog every Monday and you can learn more about her adventures by subscribing or visiting her website. Learn more!
