It’s Derby Day!

“A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.” ~ Pam Brown, Australian Poet

Long-time lover of horses and fan of horse racing, this year’s Kentucky Derby feels “especially special” to me: Of course I’ll be cheering for Michael Matz’s Union Rags (since he’s a hometown hero), and next week I’ll begin submitting the manuscript of my middle grade novel – the story of a red chestnut filly with a hard-to-pronounce name who sets out to prove she’s as good as the boys and sets her sights on winning a Triple Crown race. Fingers crossed!
