Some Exciting News!

I am so happy to announce that my YA novella, RUN FOR THE ROSES, was picked up by Swoon Romance! We're planning a November release.

RUN FOR THE ROSES
 
Abigail Conrad has one goal: Win the roses at the Arabian Youth Nationals. It is the thing she has spent all her time and energy on, and since she’s going off to college in the fall, this is her last chance to be a Youth National Champion. Nothing can distract her from her goal.
Except maybe Chase. The far-too-handsome older brother of Abigail's biggest rival. He’s charming, funny, and Abigail's biggest problem. How can she focus on her ride when her mind keeps wandering over to Chase’s green eyes and confident smile?
Abigail had better learn to balance her ambitions and her attractions
or she’ll lose the roses and the guy.
 
This book is extra special to me because, as you probably already know, I do show horses. I competed at the Youth Nationals six years in a row. I have so many amazing memories from those shows. They were always so exciting and filled with so many wonderful people. It was a lot of fun to write about a subject so dear to me. And I can't wait to share it with the world!
Also, the mare in the book is based on a mare I owned many years ago named Paris to London. She was a very special mare, she passed away years ago and I still miss her very much.

  2. Congrats! And I'm glad you got to write a book with one of your horses in it. They are such characters sometimes they need their own book. I had a pony who would sneak into the house to steal apples.
