I changed the picture on my author page because another horse came into my life. My beautiful Chancy had to be put down because a disease was destroying his nervous system. He was stumbling at first then falling down.  I was in Montana and wanted to get home, but my partner, Ruth, told me I would be too late. He needed immediate help. She made his last day the best day of his life. She stayed with him and fed him carrots and grain. She petted and brushed him until the vet came to set him free.

It was rough coming home to the pasture and seeing the mound of soil which marked his grave. I thought that I would never get another horse, but I began to feel that my wings had been clipped, earth bound. Seven months passed and I started asking around about horses. My black smith led me to Chase.  We are learning about each other and soon we will fly.

I'm having a wonderful, soul-refreshing time in Montana!  When I return to the farm in two weeks, it will be time to buckle down and get to work promoting "In Spite of Everything..."  Social media networking is new territory for me, so please be patient if I don't respond to your Facebook friend requests right away, or if I don't instantly thank you for contributing a review on Goodreads or Amazon.  Your input is valued!!
