About the Author:

Ellen Wight lives in Sonoma County California. She has always loved horses and theater. At the age of twenty she joined Ringling Bros. circus, hoping to ride a horse in the greatest show on earth. Instead she rode an elephant. Dreaming of her own horse act, she worked for Glenn Randall Sr., who trained Trigger. She then developed Storybook Carriage Rides and became secretary of the North Coast Draft Horse and Mule club. Years of research have gone in to her first novel, Tales of the Express, inspired by an 1860s' stagecoach driven by Ellen in many parades.
