Caroline has always been a voracious reader of most any genre. Blessed with a wonderful husband and three amazing grown children, Caroline grew up fox hunting in the Maryland countryside and then rode and trained to Grand Prix level of Dressage.
Now a school librarian, she remains an animal lover and believes that libraries are among the most magical of places. Her writings reflect the eclectic nature of her life and reading taste, and her books include sweet romances, horse stories and even science fiction.
She wrote a horse story entitled A Horse Named Viking., and the second book in the trilogy, My Golden Horse, was released by Fire and Ice, YA, an imprint of Melange Books.
Caroline seeks to write from the heart, to transport her readers and to give wings to their imaginations.
About My Golden Horse by Caroline Akervik
Ellen Sanz is angry at the world, and she wants nothing to do with horses. Before her mother’s accident, they’d had a great life. Her mother, Linda, was a successful show jumper. Ellen had attended virtual school, and they’d travelled between international horse competitions.
Everything had changed when Linda suffered a catastrophic riding accident. Ellen has been her mother’s caretaker in the year since. They’ve been forced to move to Linda’s parents’ hobby farm in the Maryland countryside.
Here, Ellen finds herself irresistibly drawn to Lemon Meringue, nicknamed Tandy, a show ring sour palomino rescue mare, as well as to Joel, a cute and horse crazy guy.
Can Ellen and Tandy let go of the pain of their pasts to embrace a new life and find that special connection?
