About the Author:

Ulme’s tale, in this first book “Ulme of the Alentejo,” might easily be a metaphor for my own life – as fairy tales do come true; however, the joys of living your dreams are often matched with the inescapable, lows. For me, I managed to escape gravity living and working in the cocoon – like world of jet fighters. Few other endeavors allow you to experience life’s extremes. Then, all too briefly came the reality, finding your path once again on terra firma with its cavalcade of failures, success, and redemption. I had tremendous empathy for Ulme, as he found his idyllic life turned upside down. Forced to engage in a battle of agility and skill over a massive, determined fighting bull. The story eventuated into a six-stanza narrative poem recalling the fateful reunion of Ulme and his savvy cavaleira. The joy and harmony of their meeting had a dark side as Ulme’s scars provided stark evidence of the ills imposed upon his life. I sensed a story in this real life horse that would resonate with many, if only symbolically. Then, fates joined, and Ulme found in Noodles, an 18 hand Dutch Warmblood, a best friend, and stable mate. Noodles found a voice and with his very compelling personality, began to narrate the story of Ulme from his early days in the Alentejo to his dramatic forays with the bulls and finally banishment into isolation. Balancing the magic of talking horses with the reality of their true nature had me frequently questioning the dialogue and storyline. As in all journeys, it is an imperfect process. I hope the result is entertaining and gives the reader a glimpse behind the curtain into the incredible world of sport horses.
