-- Who is luckier than a young girl whose father trains race horses? Twelve-
year -old Rose Olen loves her life as the daughter of a racehorse trainer -- until allegations of impropriety by a journalist throw her father’s career and Rose’s reputation at school in jeopardy. DIXIE DUST RUMORS, the debut YA mystery under the Jenny Storm name, releases from eTreasures Publishing (www.etreasurespublishing.com)
early this summer. With an intelligent, inventive heroine determined to save her father’s reputation, this fast-paced mystery set against the fascinating backdrop of thoroughbred racing is a perfect choice for middle-grade readers. Rose and her friends also have to deal with the snobbish kids from school, her younger brother’s repeated trips to the principal’s office, vandalism to the property, vindictive rumors against the family, and worry about whether or not they’ll be invited to the upcoming dance.
Jenny Storm has covered horse racing for ten years, which appears under the Devon Ellington name. She publishes under a half a dozen names in both fiction and non-fiction, and her plays are produced all over the world. She has a special fondness for horse-related charities, including New York Horse Rescue (www.nyhr.org)
, who will receive a portion of royalties from DIXIE DUST RUMORS.
