Jump in the saddle for a fun but bumpy ride!
Few will hire competitive rider, Viola Parker, since the famous jumper, Wastrel, crashed to his death with her aboard. Not only that, her attitude just landed her out of work…again. She can barely afford her whipped-cream-in-a-can addiction.
Now, before she's thirty, she must keep a job for one year and receive a glowing letter of recommendation to get a surprise trust fund set up by her absentee parents. A trust fund that could represent freedom and independence—or might be worth nothing.
Vi accepts a position and moves from Long Island to Missouri thinking that keeping her mouth shut and her head down for one year will be easy.
But when Wastrel begins haunting her dreams and dead bodies start piling up, the question isn’t whether she can earn a reference from her hunky boss, Malcolm, but whether she’ll live long enough to get it.

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 . . .
