Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 10.18.59 PMNewly released YA novel Girl Warrior dives into how historically, women did not compete in the World Famous Suicide Horse Race during the Omak Stampede. Charnaye Toulou has her sights pinned on winning the famous horse race. The purse will help ease a financial burden of her paraplegic father, worn out mother, and ill grandfather. But more than that, she wants the respect earned from becoming “King of the Hill.” But when bully Hagan Hurst chokes her and causes her self-esteem to plummet, she hooks up with her Okanogan relatives and a horse that can take her the distance. But where do the threatening letters come from, and why do they follow her, no matter where she goes?
