Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention

It is when you have horses. And it doesn’t take a horseman long to learn that!

All of the main characters in Books 1-4 are horse owners and avid riders (and a few of the minor characters are as well).  With horses, it’s pretty much a case of, “If they can they will” because they’re usually smart and usually curious so whatever they can get into, they do.

Their owners learn that WD-40, gorilla tape, baling twine and tie wraps are their new best friends. Some horses like Harley, the handsome off-the-track Thoroughbred Asha Hamilton rides in Book 3, Signs of Life, don’t discriminate between clothing, tack, equipment and structures. She jokingly calls him, “the Terminator.”

Baling Twine ClotheslineAt other times, horsemen just use whatever’s handy to get the job done. When Asha was a member of the elite U.S Equestrian Team, all of her animals, clothing, tack and ancillary equipment were immaculate…as you’d expect. By the end of Book 3, Signs of Life, she’s taken up trailriding and the USET’s chef d’equipe probably wouldn’t have believed his eyes if he’d seen her knot a couple pieces of baling twine together and run a quick clothesline between a tree and the side mirror on her truck to hang a sweaty saddle pad to dry for a hour or so in the sun.

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.
