About the Author:

Strawberry Shakespeare was born and educated in New York City where she received a master's degree and doctoral training in clinical psychology. While working in the mental health field she returned to her original love - writing - and is now a bestselling children's book author and screenwriter who lives in Los Angeles.
 
Saving Bluestone Belle, Shakespeare's debut novel, is an Amazon bestseller and a popular children's book for ages 9-12, and has been a book club selection, a featured attraction and an award winner at book groups, book fairs, book festivals and animal rights conferences across the country. Her other bestselling children's books include The Cloud Horse: Short Fiction for Kids and her newest release, Hope's Horse: The Mystery of Shadow Ridge.

Shakespeare was interviewed by reporters at the Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles. What follows is a quote from that interview.

"How we treat the least among us is an indication of who we really are as a culture. Too often, horses are viewed as a disposable commodity rather than as faithful companions and helpmates of man. I was horrified by reports of their rampant abuse and exploitation by the horse slaughter industry, and decided to highlight this issue in my children's novels. My hope is that this story will inspire young people to take a stand against cruelty toward horses and other animals."
