Another Ponies & Puppies Art Contest for Kids!

I've been invited to the Equine Corral Tack Shop in Lithia, Florida for a book signing on Saturday, November 28th from 1 - 3 pm. So I'm holding another Young Artists Contest!

I'm offering a Ponies & Puppies Contest for young artists to submit drawings of a horse or a dog with the winners receiving autographed copies of my books.

The winner of the horse category will win one of the BELOVED HORSES series and the dog category will receive WOOGIE’S TRAVELS – LOOKING FOR A FRIEND. Children through age 16 years old may submit their entry at Equine Corral on 10419 County Road 39 south in Lithia from now until 3pm on November 28th, when winners will be announced. Results will also be posted at here.

I'll will be signing my seven books on Saturday, November 28th from 1pm until 3pm, and also offer several free activities:

· Face or Hand Painting of horses and dogs

· Coloring Pages from my books

· Readings from BELOVED HORSES books and WOOGIE’S TRAVELS – LOOKING FOR A FRIEND, a beginner Reader Picture Book

· Advice for writers, young and old, who want to become published

My horse books are illustrated collections of true short stories describing the unique bonds between horses and their riders. The anecdotes are amazing, amusing and inspirational. The third book of the series, BELOVED SPORT HORSES released in 2007, features several equines from Florida.

I am looking for more horse owners to interview for the fourth book in the series to be released in 2010. Submitters receive a complimentary copy upon publication. To learn more about my books, visit and
