Young Artists Contest at HITS Ocala!

I'm hosting another young artist contest, "Ponies & Puppies," this time to benefit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital - After our son died last fall, and my nephew the year before, I'm a firm believer in cancer research.

It will be held during Kids Day at Horse Shows In The Sun (HITS) on Sunday, March 14 from 11 am - 4 pm. The show grounds are located on SR 27 in Ocala, Florida. See

There is no entry fee and each child who submits a drawing or painting will receive a gift, with the winners receiving copies of my books. Beloved Sport Horses features a leading Grand Prix rider, Tracy Magness, and several other riders and trainers from Florida.

I will be selling and signing my three Beloved Horses books, Woogie's Travels (about our Irish Terrier) as well as my three young adult mystery novels. See and

Donations of 20% of all sales will be sent to St. Jude's, and other donations will be appreciated.

Please spread the word by sharing this information to an horse or dog loving child in the area!
