Shining Stars May Event Photos

We had a wonderful time on May 16th at the Shining Stars Therapeutic Riding Program who held a fundraising event at their arena on York Rd, Gettysburg, PA. The horsey/craft yard sale featured me and my books because one of their horses, Hochie, is included in my 4th Beloved Horses book. 

He was Brandy Crago's trick horse in his first career. 

It was lovely to set up my booth with my 10 books in the indoor arena and the kids enjoyed my craft of decorating a real horseshoe with bling!

There was also adorable Miniature Horses!

To Catch a Horse Thief is released as an e-book!

My second book in the Masonville Mystery Series is now available as an e-book!

To Catch a Horse Thief includes all the teenage boy characters from the first novel: Luke, Shaq, Tony and Jason. Octavia, Shaq's cousin (and the boy's high school teacher), and her father, Detective Gordon Vintara are also included.

Amy, from California, spends the summer with her cousin Luke in the Pennsylvania mountains. While bike riding in the nearby park with Luke's three friends, they discover two draft horses and a pony being kept secretly in a temporary pasture on park land. When shotgun blasts are heard, they quickly head home.

Later they find out that the horses were stolen, as well as four others from a local stable. But there's more than stolen horses involved - the owner of the stable is dead and a young boy was attacked during the theft. The teens assist their high school teacher, Ocatvia, and her father in solving the case.

This exciting equine adventure is suitable for middle grade readers through adults.

To Catch a Horse Thief is now available for $2.99 for your Kindle. Prime members can borrow this book and read it on their devices with Kindle Owners Lending Library.
