In The White Horse Talisman, Chantel, Adam, Holly and Owen must help Equus, the great white horse, find his mate and foal and regain his magical talisman. But as the horse rises, so does the dragon. The age-old battle between good and evil threatens the bond between Chantel and Adam and endangers the quest. This is fantasy as its best, a story that raises hairs on the back of the neck and sends satisfying chills up and down the spine, a story that, while clearly drawn from the rich world of make believe, feels truer than true.

Are You Thinking Of Buying A Horse is a common sense guide to horse ownership. Inside you will find detailed information on what to look for and what to avoid in buying a horse, why you want a horse, alternatives to horse ownership, extensive information to help you find the right boarding stable, suggestions for building your own barn, what to look for in a riding instructor and horse trainer, what a horse eats and how to feed him, veterinarian care, farriers, safety concerns, common sense ideas, trailering, what you should do if you brought the wrong horse and the steps you need to take in the event your horse passes away. I grew up in a military family. I rode horses everywhere I lived, riding with friends and at riding stables. I fell in love with horses when I was 5 years old and rode a donkey in Holland. I was able to purchase my first horse in 1974 and she was with me until she passed away at the age of 26 in 1996. I still have her son, who is now 27 years old. I think that developing a close friendship with a horse is one of the greatest gifts one can have.

This is the first book in the series of "Charlie the Great White Horse" "Charlie the Great White Horse and the Story of the Magic Jingle Bells," is a children's/ adult Christmas novella that evokes: the adventure, fantasy and magical happy-endings, of a simpler time in America. This story is set in the early 1900's, in the mythical town of Centerville, Indiana. Louis Parks is a: ten year old red haired, freckle faced boy, who is a little small for his age, and found to be in constant trouble with his mom, because he never finishes his daily-chores; due to his endless daydreaming. Louis envisions himself the hero in his fantasies; but his real life is quite different. Louis has found a special friendship with Charlie-a very friendly, but somewhat strange barnyard-horse; of Louis' neighbor, Mr. Beamer. Charlie has his own secrets though. Although he appears to be: an old working cart-horse, soon to be replaced by the new "horseless-buggy" technology, he is in fact; the last of a very special breed of horse. He is an "Arion," from the "ancient times," who can achieve immortality by performing magical acts of daring and courage-when called upon. As the story unfolds in the months before Christmas, Charlie, Louis and Chug Martin are thrown into circumstances wrought: with danger, daring, and intrigue. They must: foil the plot of a trio of horse-thieves from Saint Louis, who arrive in Centerville-during the annual county fair-to steal Jupiter, the great racehorse, who has come to run in Centerville's famous "Gazette Stakes." Charlie, Louis and Chug perform: heroic deeds, ultimately acts of great courage, bravery and determination; in ridding the town of the three Missouri Rats- Black Jack Tilly, Cool Joe Biggs and Rags Martin. This wonderful Christmas fable is about: tried-and-true-values and good-morals that all children; should take to heart. This is a: coming-of-age story that should be relevant for children of all ages. The pre-quell to this book is: The Journey to Northumberland and the Rise of the Undertoads.
