Edie’s New Book! Now available in print, on Kindle and on all e-readers.
Shut Up and Ski is a fictionalized version of the real challenges that faced the US Women’s ski team in the year leading up to the 1988 Olympics from the perspective of not-so-brave rookie downhiller Olivia Sharp. This make or break year takes Olivia and her band of strong-willed yet woefully inexperienced teammates from Mt. Hood’s snowcapped cindercone, to a searing hot stadium in Utah, from icicle-filled vans to plush corporate jets, from steep chutes in the Andes to icy glaciers in Switzerland and finally to a wind-scoured trailer park outside of Calgary.
It is aimed at athletes, coaches, Olympic fans, skiers, young adults and the parents hoping to understand them.
