|The Mysterious Dog Island
The story involves Raymond, an Aboriginal boy, torn between two cultures, humorous anecdotes from a blended white and Aboriginal
family situation, a snowmobile camping trip that ends in a serious crash, winter survival, and a mysterious dog sled ride
with a team of phantom huskies.
Sample of Writing
Now, hurtling completely out of control, the snowmobile hit a second, gigantic, ice ridge with a loud, shattering
explosion, sending pieces of ice and machine in every direction, while catapulting its riders through the air like rag dolls
in a tornado.
