Her competitive spirit has been dampened in the past year by her writing goals. She has mostly retired from her favorite Endurance Rides down to occasional Limited Distance and frequent trail rides with friends. Her Missouri Foxtrotting Horse is happily getting fat in the pasture while his rider sits at her computer, but that is bound to change with the coming cooler season. She plans to continue with more books based in Riverview, CO. Some will be mysteries, maybe a romance or two, some may even use endurance again as a background for the suspense. All will feature believable characters who live normal lives and experience unusual situations.
While her goal is to find an agent and publishing house, she will continue to self-publish until she finds the best person to represent her and her style of writing. Her first two novels, DESPERATE ENDURANCE and SKELETON TRAIL are being well received and the reader reviews have been great.
