Thirteen-year-old Selah’s life is about as perfect as it gets. She has horsy friends at school, and on weekends, she rides her black mare on Grandpa’s farm. Training the horse to do upper-level liberty work is what makes her heart beat.
But one word can ruin a perfect life—moving.
A move would separate her from her horse, so she plots to get her name on the farm mailbox instead. She’s sure she could persuade Grandpa—except he’s overly distracted by a sheep-loving neighbor.
Determined not to let Grandpa's new sweetheart take her place in his heart, Selah puts her hope in a painted dream horse from Grandpa’s past. When she snugs up the girth and buckles on her spurs, Selah rides to win.
About the Author
The passion behind my work is renewed from letters that come from young fans. One recently told me she felt like she was riding in the buggy with Mary and Laura in Mary's Song. A grandmother admonished me to stop saying the books are juvenile fiction because she adored them and it made her feel like she was twelve- years-old again. Love from fans keeps me writing.
I adore grandchildren, horses, bunnies, mochas, the beach, forest trails, and especially joy found in the Lord. Instilled with the need to create, I love building projects and writing adventure stories. I am a life-long equestrian and am owned by a Rocky Mountain Horse. Though I am a rider and lover of horses, I makes no claims of expertise in any riding discipline and each book requires thorough research to avoid annoying those who would know.
I write at an antique secretary desk that occupies a glass room with a forest view. Fittingly, it once belonged to the same wise grandmother who introduced me to the love of reading via Walter Farley's horse books. That desk has secret compartments which hold memories, mysteries, and story ideas.
The only thing more fun than riding might be writing horse adventure stories and I invite you to saddle up and ride along.
