No Defense cover web

After giving up the worst goal of his NHL career and at the worst possible time – overtime of the Stanley Cup Championship Game 7 — Tyler McKenzie flees to Africa. But even a safari into the famed Serengeti can’t wipe away the sting of his failure. He sees it everywhere he looks.

Except when he looks into the eyes of Angie Smolinski, an outspoken, bull-in-the-china-shop firecracker he finds far more interesting than any of the beauties back home.

They fall head over heels for each other until the firecracker explodes like a bomb.

Available on KindleNOOK,  Kobo,  Smashwords,  and Amazon (print).

Offside available in trade paperback

Pentucket Publishing is delighted to release Offside,  David H. Hendrickson’s latest novel, in a very attractive trade paperback edition. This follows the December release of the electronic edition.




Offside released for e-books

Pentucket Publishing is proud to release David H. Hendrickson’s latest novel, Offside, in all electronic formats. The paper version will become available in early January.


Officially, this is a Young Adult title because its hero is a teenager and the content is age-appropriate for readers 14 and up, but the same adult readers who loved Hendrickson’s previous YA title, Cracking the Ice, will love this one, too.

Offside is truly a story for all ages.

“Rabbit” Labelle loves football, but the tiny, rural Maine town where he lives isn’t big enough to support a team. After his father moves the family to the big, bad city, Rabbit finally gets his chance to play the sport he loves the most, but he must also confront the dangers of “Lynn, Lynn, City of Sin.” Since it’s 1967 and cities are torn by racial turmoil, this includes his father’s greatest fear: “the Negroes.”

Rabbit, who’d been the most popular kid in Plainfield, Maine, struggles to make friends and wonders if he’ll even survive.

Only football can save him.

Find Offside here: KindleNookKobo, and Smashwords. $5.99
