False Riches takes us inside the world of a fictional Texas racetrack. The tension inherent in horse racing-between love of animals and love of money-is at the heart of the story.

It's about an exercise rider - Amos Moon - and the courage it takes to ride racehorses. He advocates for the safety and protection of all horses, riders and jockeys. The story follows Amos as he uses a tip from a questionable source and makes a bet that changes his life forever. He finds his way out of a web of trouble and intrigue and learns what is really worth striving for.

The story also follows Rixie Ricksland, a private investigator, who is hot on the trail of whoever is involved in the crimes of horse drugging, race fixing, and even dognapping.

Rixie works for a federal agency, NESPA, charged with regulating equine and human safety, and demonstrates the challenges such an agency faces in the horse racing world.

It's also a love story, a crime story, and a spiritual movement toward reverence for human and animal life in spite of greed for money and glory. It's a complex, intriguing story and a reminder of just how powerful a story of courage can be. By providing a formula for a common purpose - it helps ensure there is a future in horse racing.

About the Author

Before meeting his wife, all John Paul Miller knew about horses was what he had seen on T.V., but for the past 20+ years, he has spent countless hours in riding lessons, in the saddle on trails, and in the bleachers at horse shows and rodeos. John Paul has listened to the life stories of trainers, veterinarians, jockeys, exercise riders, and thoroughbred owners-all of which sparked his imagination and inspired him to write False Riches.John Paul currently lives on a farm in Lexington, KY with his wife, four horses, and two dogs.
