I must admit, as a person who loves to write, you would think I'd have been blogging since blogging was first created by . . . (anyone know the answer?) However, as a full time writer, part time adjunct at a community college, wife, mother of two children, two horses, three dogs and two cats, and some-time gardener, I find that time is precious. But when asked to join Equestrian Ink, I did not hesitate. Being able to combine two passions--writing and horses--is what I love to do. I have written over sixty books for children and teens and the majority have included horses. I still ride in my old age, although leisurely trots on the trails have replaced competition, but when I write my novels, I can 'become' an African American jockey during the Civil War, or an experienced equestrienne navigating a jump course. I also learn through my research incredible information about horses in history, which makes me appreciate their contributions to our country and which I hope to share as I continue to blog.
So thank you readers and members of Equestrian Ink for welcoming me to the blog. Please go to www.alisonhartbooks.com to find out more about me and my books.
