Dear Readers and Fans,

Thank you for your patience during the revision process.  I apologize for some small errors that were in the book and needed to be corrected.   I felt somewhat rushed to publish the book because I was coping with the health issues my father, and felt some urgency in getting the book to print, so that he would be able to enjoy it should things take a bad turn.

Fortunately he is doing better and feels well enough to help make corrections and it is with his input that the revisions were made.

Thank you Dad for serving our country, staying strong and believing in me.

Love,
Laura


Thank  you to Horseloverz for their support and sharing!

 About the Author

L.E. Klein dreamed of riding horses since she was a little girl.  The daughter of a Naval pilot and school librarian, she was born in Albany, GA and grew up in San Diego, CA.  She w
as fascinated with horse racing and show jumping and dreamed of retraining a racehorse to ride in the Olympics.  Growing up she enjoyed reading books by Walter Farley, Marguerite Henry  Anna Sewell and any books related to horses and their care. 


At seven years old she had her first riding lesson with Gerry Donnelly; who helped the family search for a suitable horse after five years of lessons.  She had a short list of horses to try and Gerry supported leasing a horse named Magnum, when he seemed to be a good match.  After taking care of Magnum for several months and having him fail a pre-purchase exam Laura was heartbroken.  The next horse Gerry introduced her to was Consoler, who turned out to be everything she imagined and he healed her broken heart.  They won several year-end awards showing at Sweetwater, Ramona, Show Park, Camp Pendleton and Miramar.  

While away at college Laura went to qualify for Intercollegiate Regionals under the late A.J. Coyle and David and Laurie Meacham.  She stayed on the east coast and taught in Greenwich, CT, New York and New Jersey.  In 2000 her dreams came true when she rode in her first sanctioned horse race at Monmouth Park for trainer Glenn Thompson. 

Ms. Klein resides on a small farm in Pennsylvania with her family and their pets.  She credits her parents for encouraging her to “dream big” and their fond memories of Soler as an inspiration to write this book.  Drawings horses has always been a hobby for her and it was her mother's encouragement and her daughter's interest in art as the inspiration to illustrate the book herself. She is currently working on the two related books in the series and a racetrack themed series of books for adult readers.
