2015 in the Rear View Mirror

A huge chunk of this year was given over to getting The Cowgirl Jumped Over the Moon out of my drawer and into the hearts and minds of readers. It is receiving 5-Star reviews, so I feel gratified that it was worth the effort.
It is re-connecting me with the horse world in ways I had not imagined when writing the story. Initially, it was my way of dealing with being injured and having to give up riding and my mare. My injury forced me to turn my focus onto my writing. Until then, my best energies were given to taking care of my mare, taking riding lessons and entering local riding events. Today, I am back in the saddle having fun going to guest ranches in our wild west, trail rides in foreign lands and collecting stories for my next book.

Which title do you like the best? I would love to have your feedback.

(1)    Wild Ballou Wander
(2)   Tuck you in Tales
(3)   Lost Angel Rides Again
(4)   Let Me Take You There
(5)   Whet Your Wanderlust

I went to the Central Coast of California and did some nice hikes for my birthday in June and snuck off to St. Croix in September for an equestrian wellness week with Sharon Pohl.  Both wonderful trips that I have written about. Here are the links to those stories as they appeared on my column on The National Association of Baby Boomer Women.

 In 2016 I want to devote more time to travel. There are some big trips I want to take that require a lot of planning. Now, that TheCowgirl Jumped Over the Moon is alive in the world, I am free to get back to exploring our beautiful world.

Wishing you a very happy New Year filled with exciting adventures!!
