Unlike many other writers, I started writing, not in my childhood, but in my early thirties. Even though my college journalism professor had always needled me to be a writer, I resisted. Why? I mistakenly believed that writing was too passive to have undue influence on society. Instead, I pursued a career in politics until my faith fell apart in my early thirties.
I enrolled in a creative writing master’s program and fell in love with the written word, with emoting on the page, and with writing.
I consider myself a late bloomer! Writing is not the only dream I shelved, however. Though the horse bug bit me at age ten the lack of time, money, and motivation abandoned me after high school. After a twenty-year hiatus from the saddle and the breath of a horse, I rediscovered all that I loved at the age of forty.
Equi-Libris, LLC connects my two dormant passions – writing and horses.
As with any equine writer, in the beginning, I struggled to find my own niche. Obviously, horses are central to any equine writer brand, but how could I distinguish myself from the herd? After a fair amount of rumination, I landed on the subjects of health and history. Health of both the horse and the human interests me and uncovering how horses crafted human history tantalized me.
Horses, Health, and History may be brand that works for your publication, website, or equine business. Please contact me if my writing style fits in your part of the equine world.
