I am a wife, a mom and a grandmother. I am also a competitive equestrian and award-winning author. I especially love to write about horses, both real or fantasy. In 2016, I released, "In the Heart of a Mustang." This story is not a fantasy but it is all about horses. This coming of age young adult novel has won the 2016 Gold Medal from the Literary Classics Awards in Young Adult General Fiction and the Silver Medal in the Nautilus Awards as well as the Silver Medal from Readers Favorite Awards.
My current project is a four-part series titled “The Centaur Chronicles”. I am excited about this new middle-grade fantasy. The first book, “The Stone of Mercy,” was released on Oct. 1, 2016. It has already garnered several awards including the Gold Medal from the Feathered Quill awards. The second, “The Stone of Courage,” was released on April 15, 2017 and has won a Book Excellence Award.

The Stone of Wisdom
SPRING WAS IN THE air, and most of the remains of winter had bid Crystonia adieu. Higson let his body follow the rocking motion of Tandum’s canter as they skirted the Forest of Rumors, happy, to be traveling across meadows of pale green grass and tiny sprigs of flowers. The little Duende breathed in deeply the sweet smell of new blossoms as he listened to Tandum’s hooves brush through the emerging grasses. The warm breeze that kissed his cheeks and blew his thick, brown hair back was more than pleasing.
