Purina Kids Day at HITS Ocala

I'll be participating at the
Purina Mill's Kids Day at HITS Show Circuit on Sunday, March 13 from 11 am - 1 pm. This annual event is open to the public especially for young horse lovers and held at Post Time Farm on Hwy 27 in Ocala, Fl (west of I-75). Mounted demonstrations, vendors, a Bounce and other fun activities will be available.

A special craft project I'll be offering for youngsters this year will be decorating metal pony horseshoes with glitter, sequins and bling! I'll have other horse and dog novelties as well for sale.

Besides selling and signing my mystery novels and Beloved Horses series, I'll do readings from a Beginner Reader dog book, "Woogie's Travels - Looking for a Friend." Weather permitting, Woogie will be there again to greet his fans!

My latest book, "Beloved Horses in Second Careers," features an Ocala horseman, Chester C. Weber and his Horse of the Year, Jamaica, who is the foundation horse for Team Weber the Combined Driving Champions.

The fifth book in the series will describe horses and breeds from around the world and interviews will continue through April. The book will be released in this fall.

Again, I'll have a special table with horse books by other authors and misc. items available with a donation to the St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital. Three of my immediate family members had cancer recently, including my 17-year-old nephew who passed away after a brave battle with leukemia. Cancer research needs to be expanded.
