Meet the Author

Lonna Cunningham lives on a very small farm in rural Alberta where she and her family raise sheep, chickens and veggies, accompanied by a Dexter cow, several dogs and a fluctuating number of cats. You can read Lonna’s musings about life on the farm, knitting, gardening and a variety of other somewhat random subjects on her website at blog.applejackcreek.com.Lonna rarely goes anywhere without a knitting project in hand and once sat at the side of the road after a car accident working on a sock while waiting for the police to arrive. She is engaged in an ongoing effort to balance the size of the fibre stash in such a way as to ensure that there is always enough on hand to allow for the immediate implementation of suddenly-inspired projects while at the same time attempting to stay within the available storage space. In addition to knitting, Lonna also enjoys spinning, particularly on her beloved century-old Canadian Production Wheel and her supported spindles, and she can often be found online in the Ravelry or Homesteading Today forums, where she is known as Frazzlehead.The onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder brought Lonna’s twenty-year career in Information Technology to a rather unexpected end, and she is now exploring other ways in which she can contribute to the family’s financial stability (and pay for yarn).

Apple Jack and Pinkie Pie trotted over to Twilight's house, knowing the others would be there. As Apple Jack knocked on her door, she thought, why are there so many Parasprites? I just laid down insecticide yesterday afternoon. Twilight opened the door and was surprised to see Apple Jack and Pinkie Pie at her door looking scared out of their hooves. "What's wrong?" she asked. "We just almost got eaten by Parasprites," Pinkie Pie said. "Where?" Twilight gasped, looking around for any Parasprites. "At my farm," Apple Jack replied, "and they ate my apples! And what gets me is I just put down insecticide yesterday!" "Have you considered trying other insecticides?" Twilight suggested. "Let's go try," Rainbow Dash said, coming up behind Twilight. "C'mon everypony," Apple Jack said, and led the way to her farm. As she walked up to the shed where they keep the insecticide, she heard a yelp from behind her as Rarity stepped in a muddy puddle. "Ugh this is just gross!" she complained as she shook her hoof frantically to get the mud off of it. Apple Jack pulled out five bottles of insecticide that they could use. "Ok, let's get to work," Twilight said, and all the ponies (except Rarity) got to work. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy sprinkled it on from above, while the others galloped around sprinkling it everywhere. Each pony was in charge of each insecticide. Rarity stood off to the side and made faces at the mud being kicked up by the ponies. I just hope this works, Apple Jack thought. Whne they were done, they observed there work. Then a yelp broke out of the peaceful silence and a loud buzzing was heard too. ~End of chapter two. Hope you like so far! Plz rate and review! And read my fanfic about Rainbow Dash at rainbow dash results one through four. Thnx! ~RD 8\/\
