Learning To Speak Southern

Asha Hamilton is a Yankee, no doubt about it. She grew up in Connecticut, attended Smith College as an undergraduate, married her brother’s Harvard roommate.

She was a horse-crazy kid and took riding lessons every Saturday, competing in one show after another. She was on the college equestrian team. She was invited to train with the U.S. Equestrian Team and selected to represent her country in Three-Day Eventing at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.

Then it all went off the rails, which is the plot of Book 3, Signs of Life.

Two decades later, Asha’s still living in New England and supporting herself as a riding instructor in Vermont, where she buried herself after the Olympic debacle.  She makes a trip to Tennessee for a mini-reunion with her former suitemates from the exclusive Connecticut boarding school she attended. She falls in love with the area’s spectacular beauty, with the favorable climate…with gaited horses and trail riding.

There’s more to it, though, than packing up and moving halfway across the country. When you live in the South, you have to learn to speak Southern…or at least to understand what you’re hearing.

Have completed four Contemporary Fiction/Romance novels in The Riverwood Series. The first was released in August 2018; the second is under contract and in the process of edits. The third book has been submitted to the publisher. The fourth has recently been completed and the fifth is now the current work-in-progress. The setting is Big South Fork, Tennessee which is known as "The Trailriding Capital of the Southeast" so these stories will all appeal to horse lovers who love to read books about horses.
