Romance, Adventure & Horses


Even if a horse trots across one scene of your story, I love to help other authors write horses right. Whether I'm helping writers, riding instructors, or people learning to ride, teaching about horses is embedded in my character.


Writing the Historical American Horse, part 1, is just a small sampling of the ways you can enhance your writing with a bit of horse knowledge. You might wonder why someone who writes contemporary began with the historical horse… it's because history lays the foundation for life. 


Sign up to view the free course, Writing the Historical American Horse, part 1, by clicking on "Writing Course" at the top of this page. Not only will you have access to the course, you'll receive my newsletter where I'll keep you informed of new courses and of my adventures along the publishing trail. 


Look for future lessons on writing, horse care, terminology, and riding for contemporary writers, horse lovers or history lovers. And watch the blog for posts about all stages of the writing and horse life.
