Today I had the pleasure of sending 24 courtesy copies of my latest novel, Believing In Horses Out West, to Maryland’s library systems. The Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) awarded me a grant to share my books with residents to help educate readers about horse rescue, natural horsemanship, and trail riding.
In Believing In Horses Out West, young Sadie Navarro ventures from Maryland to a dude ranch in Montana to make sure a horse she rescued is safe. While there, she learns about ranch life, unravels a mystery, and returns home with revelations about her life’s purpose.
I am proud to include information in this book about Maryland’s wonderful horse-related organizations including Freedom Hill Horse Rescue, Maryland Therapeutic Riding, Maryland High School Rodeo Association, and more.
MHIB’s Executive Director Ross Peddicord and the board have been instrumental in recognizing equine-related arts including hosting EQUUS Film and Arts Festival events, promoting Maryland-based film productions, and supporting local authors and artists.
Thank you to the Maryland Department of Agriculture and the MHIB for your support and allowing me to share my books with readers across the state!
