When Nattie Gold's boss at The Charlotte Commercial Appeal orders her to find a local horse whisperer to interview, she knows just the person: yellow-haired New Age belle Sarah Jane Lowell. Unfortunately, before Nattie can set up a meeting, Sarah Jane vanishes along with her newfound friend: Nattie's eccentric father. Suspiciously, their sudden disappearance coincides with the brutal murder of Fuzzy McMahon, whose bludgeoned body was found at the very stable where Nattie was supposed to meet Sarah Jane. Who would stoop to such a bloody act of violence? Nattie's splitting her money between a few front-runners--Sarah Jane and her own father included. . . .

I worked on the new packaging for IN COLT BLOOD by Jody Jaffe. Her writing is really upbeat, the characters are funny and well-rounded. Anyway, her covers needed to be bright and handsome. After going to different illustrators for sketches (and not being satisfied with the direction, though the sketches were good), we did a search for horse photos, which you'd think would be easy. But it's not! Then after finding the horse, I worked on the computer to recreate it into a more graphic looking image rather than a plain photograph. The cover finally came together. I confess I look forward to the next book, even if I go half crazy looking for the right horse.

"Nattie is pure gold . . . Spunky, quirky, and lots of fun."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Pitch-perfect . . . [Jaffe] expertly transports the reader to a foreign but intriguing subculture, the horse-show circuit."
--Los Angeles Times
