Christmas Pony

Kallie arrived the Thursday before Christmas and we actually got two rides in before the weather closed in again…one on the Saturday before Christmas and one the morning of Christmas Eve.   No pictures of that, but I thoroughly enjoyed both.  The picture of me riding was the last ride at Forward Motion, where she rehabbed Read More…

The Writer Buys Another Horse

After Mocha, who bucked me off and gave me the concussion (but is happily with her new family in California)  and Molly, whose attitude to anything adults want her to do is “Make me, sucker!” though she goes kindly for children, I am now the happy owner of Kallie (barn name) who is a 15 Read More…

Updates

The gorgeous but unpredictable little mare who bucked me off and kicked my husband (same maneuver; she probably didn’t intend to hit him) in mid-February finally sold to someone in California, hurray, hurray.  Until she’s transported, she’ll be out of that barn and into another site to gain weight for the trip (she’s not bony, Read More…

Changes

Page Proofs: The Last Step

So the page proofs are *almost* out the door (one more day…)  and as usual a small number of errors have shown up.   Sometimes things that are changed in the copy-edits stage don’t make it into the final version that’s typeset and that’s WHY page proofs are important.  Sometimes something slips by all the previous Read More…

New Vatta-verse Story

I have a new Vatta story in Infinite Stars, a new anthology edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt that’s out today.  https://titanbooks.com/infinite-stars-9264/ . It fits between the end of Vatta’s War and the beginning of Cold Welcome, and is the story that I originally planned Ky’s first meeting with Jen–that I posted here or thought I Read More…
