The Return of FAQs
Q: Why doesn't the link to your husband's story about the wild horse sanctuary work?
A: Popularity can really mess things up! Too many people were trying to log on, but here's a back door code that should get you to the story! http://tinyurl.com/yah9oj
Q: What reading level are your books, really?
A: I try to write my books so that they appeal to all age levels and I've learned that readers who are interested in horses and ranch life will read them, no matter what. I read lots of YA and middle grade books because I love them, but I also read scientific reports on wild horses which are hard to understand. Still, I can do it, because I'm motivated to KNOW that information! Guess that's why I hear from readers 8 - 80!
Q: Are you related to Walter Farley?
A. Nope, but I'm sure when he was alive he loved horses, too. As you've probably noticed, my stories take place far from the world of Thoroughbred racing (Ace would totally freak out there, and I don't want to imagine what Witch would do!).
One of the reasons Samantha is my heroine is that most adventurous horse stories I read while growing up had boys as the main characters. I wanted to change that!!!!!!!!!!
Q: The last PHANTOM book isn't even out yet, but I'm worried about what to read until your new series is out. I've read every horse book there is, almost, but do you know any new ones?
A: You might check out Chris Platt's MOON SHADOW. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I know it's a wild horse story that takes place in Nevada.
