I’ve been writing stories and riding horses-frequently simultaneously-for as long as I can remember. I grew up on Long Island and spent my formative years in the saddle-just imagining. After high school, I traveled to Ness, England and studied at a British Horse Society training school. This was an all-around amazing experience. When I left, I clutched a certification to teach riding in my hot little hand, and I enjoyed instructing riders for many years. Who am I kidding? We know it is the horses who do the teaching. All we can do is try to remain open to what they have to say.
Not surprisingly, my fiction and non-fiction are both frequently infused with the mystery and spirituality horses have brought to my life.
My philosophy, in brief: (No, not in briefs, but that’s a nice image, thank you very much.)
We are all immigrants in spirit, with our minds, hearts, and souls being the final frontier.
Yep, that’s it.
I’ve discovered this is what happens to all my main characters-whether by choice or accident or design-they go somewhere else.
At first, this change may be only external-physical. Over time, their journeys lead to a place of discovery and growth that is within each individual alone. The final frontier to which we all can go.
