Looking for a horse book to fall in love with? Look no further! Here's twenty spur jingling equine authors to choose from. I'm celebrating the second ten authors featured in my Equestrian Author Spotlight series with a recap post.
I love supporting fellow authors!
Thank you to all the equine authors who have given me the gift of their time. It makes my spurs jingle when authors unite. I’ve learned so much from other authors and appreciate how unique each of our writing journeys are. I think it is so important to support each other and share knowledge among us. We are stronger working together to expose this “niche” genre of ours. Here’s to horse books. Happy reading!
Here's my Equestrian Author Spotlight Interview Recap 11 - 20!
11. An Interview with Jan Ruth
In this eleventh Equestrian Author Spotlight, my spurs really jingled because I talked with Jan Ruth. She is the author of the Midnight Sky Series. I am a HUGE fan of her horse book series for adults! In the interview, you'll find out what inspired her equestrian fiction series, learn where the inspiration for her beautiful book cover designs come from, and hear why she left traditional publishing to return to the indie world last year (psst ... she prefers creative freedom over any perceived prestige!)
12. Meet Grace Marshall
In this twelfth spotlight, I talked with Grace Marshall. She is the author of the Horse Haven book series. In the interview, you'll learn that she volunteers at a local horse stable, she loves the movie Dreamer, and that her favorite horsey memory involves having her childhood horse step on her foot!
13. About Equine Author L.R. Trovillion
In this thirteenth Equestrian Author Spotlight, I talked with L.R. Trovillion. She is the author of the equestrian novel, False Gods. In the interview, you'll learn about her favorite horse book authors and that her favorite equine memory involves Santa Claus delivering a pony! As a writer, I absolutely fell in love with the motivational quote that is hanging over her desk and her answer to my question, "Why do you write?" I think you will appreciate the words of wisdom she offers in this spur jingling interview, too!
14. Meet Nicole Moore
In this fourteenth Equestrian Author Spotlight, I talked with Nicole Moore. She is the author of the Shade Break Farm equestrian fiction series. In the interview, you'll learn that her favorite equine memory is of a snowy bareback ride on Christmas Day!

Also, you'll love learning about the moral of her stories, get a kick out of her commentary on a favorite quote, and want to join her while she researches her equestrian fiction novels.
17. Meet Ann Hunter, Author of the North Oak Series
In this seventeenth Equestrian Author Spotlight, I talked with equine author Ann Hunter of the North Oak horse book series. In the interview, you'll learn about her favorite horse movie(s).
