What's it About?
This thoroughbred collection of twelve original horse stories captures the appeal of those magnificent creatures and the
unique relationship between a horse and its handler. My story in this collection, "Madrigal's Melody", is about Madrigal,
a police horse in New York, and Gerri, a homeless girl who's a bit sad and lonely - until she discovers that she can talk
to Madrigal and the horse can talk to her in that special way some extra-sensitive people are able to communicate
clearly with animals. So, when Madrigal's life is threatened, Gerri understands and knows just what to do.
