About the Author:

Born in Australia, Kerri Grisham lived in America for 17 years where she specialized in the showing and importation of Australian Arabian ponies while also working in the film industry. Kerri and her family returned to Australia in June 2012 so she could produce a slate of films, TV shows and children’s books with her business partner Hollywood writer/actor Todd Farmer (wrote My Bloody Valentine, The Messengers, Jason X and Drive Angry). One of the shows and children’s books is based on the adventures of Amurath Santiago, her pure bred Arabian gelding she brought with her from the States. Now part of the family Santiago caught Kerri’s eye as he happens to have a perfect love heart star on his forehead and coincidentally Addison her daughter has a heart birthmark on her forearm. Sometimes real life has its own special magic. As a child in Australia, Kerri grew up around horses and was an accomplished rider and horse fanatic from a young age. At 16 she suffered an accident while jumping cross-country and was left with spinal damage and has been in a wheelchair since. Her passion for horses and riding runs deep—evidenced by her commitment to the industry despite her devastating accident. Although the accident took her away from riding horses in the ring it did nothing to deter her energy and drive. Kerri refused to step back from life. She first began importing Australian Arabian ponies and Australian ponies, back in 2001 and sits in a very unique position, providing the link between the Australian equine industry and industry sponsors in the United States. Kerri also works as a freelance journalist, graphic designer and photographer, covering the USA and Australian Equine events and marketing some of the top Equine brands throughout the international market. Above all else, Kerri hopes that sharing her story of success will inspire others to set and achieve their goals, even in the face of adversity. She refuses to be dissuaded by the obstacles in her life and hopes to encourage others to do the same. "I hope people see what I am doing and realize that anything is possible if you just put your mind to it and believe in yourself. Never give up and remember every great achievement was once considered impossible. Believe and achieve, I am living proof of that.”
