Tell us a little about yourself. I've always loved horses for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, I dreamed of having a white stallion like a Lipizzan or a Golden Palomino like Roy Rogers' Trigger. When I was older, I was able to own some horses. They are God's most beautiful creatures.
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation was to share Christ, His wonderful plan of salvation, and His love with my readers. I want them to know what a wonderful God we serve.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I pray that my readers will either accept Christ as their Savior or determine in their hearts to serve Him more faithfully.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? For each Keystone Stables book that I wrote, I had to do research even though the books are fiction. For this particular book, I interviewed a veterinarian and was quite enthralled with the important information needed to help mares give birth, especially those that have trouble foaling.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My greatest influence is the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible. Some of my favorite authors are Nancy Rue, Richard Paul Evans, and authors of nonfiction helps books for Christians.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 3:36 "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him."
