Animal fiction - 12 plus to adult .
Among the wild horses of the American Prairies there is a Prophecy, forgotten by all but a few, that one day a special one will come. On a grey stormy night a young foal named Star is born, into a world where greed and power have destroyed all that is good. Some say that his birth is a sign, connected to this Prophecy and believe his coming heralds new hope that will deliver them from the persecution they face.
But there are those who wish to keep their power… Forced to flee for his life, the young horse is hunted by his own kind. He will have to endure great hardships on a treacherous journey of discovery before returning a true Mustang of the Plains. He must eventually summon all his courage to face the destiny he was born for; to conquer the evil that drove him away.

About the Author
I was born and raised in a small seaside town of Cardigan on the west coast of Wales. After University, I spent many years working in London before finally moving from the city to the countryside, eventually settling in the idyllic Cotswold region of England, where I've had more time to focus on my writing. From a very early age I had a keen interest in crafting stories and would get lost for hours in my adventures. My working career in predominantly senior marketing and creative positions enabled me to continue this childhood passion and fuelled my dream to eventually attempt to write a full blown novel. As a young boy, I found books by authors such as Richard Adams fascinating, where they used animal subject matter to deliver human stories and this genre very much inspired me in the direction I would take for my first novel, A Squirrel's Tale and subsequently with my second novel, The Prairie Drifter. My biggest hope is that people really enjoy the characters and the journey they take as much as I enjoyed creating them.
