About Kristin Knight Pace

Kristin Knight Pace, 35, was born and raised in Ft. Worth, TX. After graduating with honors from The University of Montana with a degree in photojournalism, she had several jobs in the publishing industry in Montana and Seattle. After a heartbreaking divorce, she moved to Alaska in 2009 with her two dogs. That winter, she took care of a sled dog team and a remote cabin in the Alaska Interior. She fell in love with dog mushing, and with a wonderful man, Andy, who had also moved to Alaska to heal from heartbreak. Together, the two of them started Hey Moose! Kennel, a long-distance racing kennel made up of 30 loving dogs on ten acres outside Denali National Park. Kristin has since finished both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod Trail 1,000-mile sled dog races.

Kristin has published one memoir, THIS MUCH COUNTRY, due out in March 2019 from Grand Central Publishing, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.
