About the Author

Anita Daher

Anita Daher draws writing inspiration from the many places she's been blessed to spend time which include Summerside, PEI; Yellowknife, NT; Churchill, MB; Baker Lake, NU and Sault Ste. Marie, ON. She's been entrenched in the book publishing industry for several years writing books, articles and reviews, leading workshops and presentations, and has worked on the publishing end of things as a marketing director. Previous occupations include flight service specialist, radio broadcaster, lunch truck driver, and grave-plot salesperson. She likes writing best, as she never has to take off her slippers, can wear a funny hat, and can hold conversations with the statues and stuffies that keep her company.

Anita holds memberships in The Writers' Union of Canada, The Canadian Children's Book Center, The Manitoba Writers' Guild, The Saskatchewan Writers Guild, and was a founding member of the Territorial Writers Association. When she's not writing, she likes to spend time baking, playing her guitar (badly), and turning her backyard garden into a haven for neighbourhood bunnies. Anita currently resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with her husband, two daughters, a basset hound, and a Westfalia camper van named Mae.

Books with Orca: Flight from Big Tangle (2002), Flight from Bear Canyon (2004), Racing for Diamonds (April, 2007), Poachers in the Pingos (2008), On the Trail of the Bushman (2009).

Excerpt

"Come on Sausage!"Kaylee whistled, and patted her leg again. "Come ON Sausage!" she cried. "We've got to go NOW!"

Sausage took one step forward, then backed up, whining.

Kaylee heard a reverberating CRACK, and turned, startled. A tall, blazing tree splintered across the lane. Before Kaylee could react, the flames roared across Jack’s property, licking up and over the frame of his house.

A low rumble made Colly's blood freeze. The chug-chug of an engine followed by the clinking of chains started his heart pounding. He peered at where Jaz had disappeared on the barge. "Hurry!" he shouted inside his head. Where was she? Why didn't she get off?
Maybe she was trying.
Maybe she was caught!
He took out his red whistle and gave a short careful toot. No Jaz.
He tooted again, louder and longer this time.
Nothing.

They carried on in the dark, not speaking. Only the wind and the sound of the sled swooshing over fresh snow broke the silence.
    "Whoa!" Colly called.
    Jaz could hear open water. That wasn't all she heard.
    Woooooo!
    Wolves. And they were close!

Excerpt

Parkour is about movement, it's about making anything and everything in my path a part of my run. It's about overcoming obstacles by moving over or through them. Parkour is an attitude. Above all it's about being free.
At least, that's what Derek used to say.
