Kootenay-born-and-raised Luanne Armstrong is an organic farmer on a fourth-generation family farm in the small community of Boswell, B.C. With her MFA degree from UBC, she has increasingly taught writing and worked as a feminist researcher, a freelance journalist, and as a publisher and editor for Blue Lake Books and HodgePog Books. In her teen novel, Sand (Ronsdale $11.95), fifteen-year-old Willy Cameron is paralyzed from the waist down after a car accident. Demoralized, she takes up therapeutic horse riding and regains the use of her legs, developing a bond with a spirited rescue horse named Sand. Trouble arises when she takes Sand from the stable, against the order of the stable owner, to search for a missing friend. It’s Armstrong’s 19th book. 978-1-55380-473-4
