About the Author
"I really enjoyed the characters, the story line, and the writing, and more than anything else, the horsemanship that is woven into Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged. I found the characters (especially Sarah Wagner), the horses, and the problems they face, believable and interesting, and the setting (a good boarding and teaching barn) authentic in today's horse world, right down to the Jack Russell terriers. The reader will learn a lot about horses, good riding and horsemanship through these novels, but it's part of the story, not a ëlesson.' I enjoyed the first book so much that I went right on to the second, and now I'm hoping the author is working on the next one! I highly recommend these books!'
--Susan Harris, Centered Riding Senior Instructor, international clinician, and author of the US Pony Club Manuals of Horsemanship; Horse Gaits, Balance and Movement; Anatomy in Motion DVDs; and Grooming to Win
"Get ready to fall in love with the story of Crown Prince and Sarah. Chock-a-block with accurate equestrian details, well-paced, and full of heart, the story of Sarah and her off-the-track one-dollar purchase is the story of how hard-work, determination and love for horses can make any young rider's dream come true."
-- Elizabeth Letts, author of the New York Times Bestseller The Eighty Dollar Champion

Suddenly, she finds her dream finally coming true with the gift of the racetrack rogue, Crown Prince, but keeping the beautiful and talented troublemaker proves to be a challenge.
