Compiled by Kathie Scrimgeour



M.J. Stewart is pleased to announce the release of her new Middle-Grade Action Adventure novel, Two Degrees From Zero: A Snowboarding Adventure (Clan Publishing, ISBN: 978-0-9911850-0-9, Kindle e-book; ISBN: 978-0-9911850-2-3, Paperback, 200 pages), and is available at Amazon.  



Thirteen-year-old Derek’s cool snowboard adventure does a dangerous rewind, because his Burton Hero board holds the key to an unsolved crime. Two Degrees From Zero is a story about a boy who lost his father in a car accident two years earlier, and struggles to accept his mom’s new romance, Thomas, who invites Derek, his mom, and teen friend Janae (The Clan) on a snowboarding/ski vacation to Keystone, Colorado. When a blizzard hits during a sleigh ride and dinner The Clan accepts an offer from two arrogant snowmobilers for a way home. To The Clan's dismay they are abandoned in a creepy backwoods cabin. The teens must escape the frozen ravages of the blizzard. Derek’s determination to save The Clan while outwitting the thieves is unstoppable.

Constantly nourished by Colorado’s scenic beauty, M.J.s love for the outdoors includes downhill skiing, biking, camping, hiking, and nature photography. Two Degrees From Zero is her first middle-grade novel.
