Welcome to Horse Crossings! Hopefully you will meet lots of horse authors here, learn about their books, their horses, why they write, and much more.

I'll start with a little about The Girl Who Remembered Horses, and how I came to write it.

Here's the official blurb:

In a world that has forgotten the ancient bond between horses and humans, can one girl's dreams make people remember?

Sahara travels with her clan in a future, barren environment where recyclables are bartered for sustenance, and few remember horses or their connection to humans. But Sahara has recurring dreams of riding astride on magnificent animals that run like the wind. At the Gardener's Camp, she discovers a valuable book and learns that her visions are real. But how can she persuade others of the ancient bond between horses and humans, when she is labeled just a foolish girl?

When Sahara discovers a helpless young horse, she must use both her courage and inborn knowledge to keep the animal safe, convince others of the true worth of horses, and learn the secret of her real identity.

This novel was partially inspired by a college research project I completed about women and their passion for horses. Why do some women and girls love horses so much, and where does this inclination come from?

And as we become a more urban society, more and more horses stand around with no one using them, and fewer people actually having the knowledge to train them. What if these skills were forgotten entirely in a future world?

These questions burned in my mind as I completed this novel, and I hope it answers at least a few of them.

The Girl Who Remembered Horses is available on Amazon and from other vendors soon.

Hope you bookmark Horse Crossings and come back soon, as we introduce more equine authors and their awesome books!
