Avarice, deceit, and fleeing the law are the bedrock of Beautiful Horseflesh, a literary fiction, set in 1999. When a Thoroughbred filly arrives at the Smitt family's boarding and water walk farm, she is hailed by teen, Luis Smitt as, "a beautiful piece of horseflesh." Black as satin, she is speedy and shrouded in calamity. Her handsome trainer, Bud, insists on strict privacy in preparing the horse for Tampa's upcoming stakes race, yet finds time to flirt with both the mother and her sixteen-year-old daughter. As Luis unwraps the layers of the horse's mysteries, his family's life is irrevocably shattered. The race's starting bell pulls the Smitt's family forever impacted by deception, to its denouement. Readers of dramatic fiction, with a nod to young adult readers, will enjoy watching racehorses scorch the track.

About the Author

Fairytales read by her mother sparked Karen S. Bennett to a course of fiction. With an eye to irony, after a lifetime of observations and experiences from cello lessons, choir singing, art school, marriage, three kids, divorce, welfare, nurse's training, jobs in prison, travel to Vietnam, Russia, and South Africa, and homes in NYC, Georgia and Maryland, she sat down to write. Her first novel won first place in fiction in the Maryland Writer's Association in 2006, with other novels placing in national competitions. Many short stories have been both traditionally and e-published. Her motto is: From Fibs to Fiction.
