Going for the gold

Can I brag for a moment?  Not about me — about Lucinda.

See that enormous trophy she’s holding?  Notice the color?  Yep.  It’s gold.  Lucinda’s U12 team just won the USA HOCKEY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!

How cool is THAT?!

And how lucky am I?  You see, Lucinda is my hockey editor.  She’s the one who makes sure I don’t embarrass myself in print.  Which could easily happen, because despite the fact that my mother was Canadian and I grew up in Boston Bruins territory, I know very little about hockey.  Oh sure, I’ve watched a few games in my time.  I’ve seen a few movies, too — Miracle, and Slap Shot, and The Mighty Ducks.  But when it comes to actually describing what goes on in the rink, which I have to do since one of the main characters in my Mother-Daughter Book Club series is a hockey player, well, I’m skating on thin ice.

Enter Lucinda.  Who is a hockey ROCK STAR!  And now she has the championship trophy to prove it.  Congratulations, Lucinda!

  1. She’s thirteen and she is amazing. Dedicated, loyal, hardworking and knows when to take it seriously and when not to. Like some of Heather’s great characters!

    • Sounds like some serious button-bursting going on — and deservedly so! You must be so proud of her! 🙂

    • How fun to have such a talented niece! I’d be basking in her reflected glory if I were you. 🙂

  2. Cool! That would be so cool… =D
    I have never tried to actually play hockey, but I can skate… LOL
    I think I would embarrass myself if I tried…

  3. Congrats, Lucinda!!! Without you, Cassidy wouldn’t be the talented hockey player we all know her to be. She is just like you!
