From the Author:

A Long Trail Rolling is the first book in The Long Trails series, and is my first novel. 

I'd written non-fiction for years as an equine veterinarian, mostly articles for veterinary journals and horse magazines, but eventually, I was given the opportunity to put pen to paper and write as I'd only done as a teenager in the redwoods of California!  I love writing. This series is now in my blood and I've got the bit in my teeth! The third book in the sequence, A Sea of Green Unfolding, is expected in May 2017, and the fourth, Tatiana, in December...and a few shorter ones in between, now I've joined Authors on Main Street!

I hope you love my characters and their horses as much as I do. I've put my understanding of horses, veterinary medicine, history, things that happen between people, and my heart into my stories. 

I hope they give you pleasure.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Regards
