An unexpected ride...
Lauren's hush-hush family history tells of an ancestor and his horse vanishing in a forbidden corner of their upstate New York farm. But on the other side of the mysterious portal lies a dying land bereft of its beloved steeds.
Lauren is enjoying a rare day with the horses to herself when a strange man arrives seeking a particular rider. Before she knows what's happening, she and her brother's prize stallion, Pindar, are abducted through the Ravery to Cirq where she is proclaimed the Horsecaller and expected to return their country to greatness.
There, she encounters Supreme Guardian Leinos who awakens her long-dormant hope for the future. Lauren denies she is the prophesied Horsecaller but is drawn into his quest to return Cirq to greatness. Soon, she’s fighting giant venomous birds, a hostile queen, and the unfamiliar yearnings of her own heart.
But time is running out. Conspiracy threatens from all sides, and not everyone looks upon Ravers with kindness.
Will Lauren and Pindar bring Cirq’s horses home before it’s too late?
A story of life, love, and the secret places we dream about.
˃˃˃ Bonus! Includes a sneak peak of On The Buckle, a contemporary romantic murder mystery also available from Candace Carrabus.
˃˃˃ Be sure to pick up The Roar of Smoke--a Horsecaller spinoff set in the same world.
˃˃˃ Just before Lauren begins her incredible journey...
She tilted the last barrowful down the hillside. That's when she saw the odd man striding out of the woods. Odd, if only because he’d obviously been walking in the storm. He wore a long, hooded cloak. The shiny cloth reminded her of a school of fish with their multi-hued scales, moving together as a unit, turning and banking, bright one moment and fading in the depths the next.
As he gained the base of the hill, he pushed back his hood, shook out long, gray hair, and laughed. She tried to think if she’d ever seen him at the place where her mother lived. There were a few there who’d lost touch with reality. But he didn’t look familiar. An unsettling feeling crept up the back of her neck, like a damp fingertip tracing her spine.

About the Author
I have written stories and ridden horses--frequently simultaneously--for as long as I can remember. I grew up on Long Island and spent my formative years in the saddle--just imagining.
Not surprisingly, my stories are usually infused with the mystery and spirituality horses have brought to my life.
My philosophy, in brief :: (No, not in briefs, but that's a nice image, thank you very much.)
We are all immigrants in spirit, with our minds, hearts, and souls being the final frontier.
Yep, that's it.
I've discovered this is what happens to all my main characters--whether by choice or accident or design--they go somewhere else.
At first, this change is external--physical. Over time, their journeys lead to a place of discovery and growth that is within each individual alone. The final frontier to which we all can go.
Boldly go . . .
