Aside from my Texas beginning, I spent the first two decades of my life in the Arkansas Ozarks. I pined for a horse as a kid and never received one, so I settled on reading about them. The Black Stallion, the Thoroughbred Series, every horse book you can imagine was dutifully consumed. I fell in love with horse racing before having ever seen a racetrack. Currently I ride dressage, learning how to spiral in, half halt, and perform the perfect figure eight.
And I write. A lot.
Now I’m a librarian at a small college in Cleveland, Ohio. When not writing, I’m driving to the barn, plotting my next adventure, and wrangling two wiggly kittens.
