Author Interview – EH Humphreys

If you follow the equestrian book reviews I write for Horse & Style Magazine, then you’ll know that I recently featured Players: A Game of Grit and Glory, by new author EH Humphreys. To read that review, please click here. But today, I’d like to welcome her to the Maryland Equestrian blog for an “Author[…]

Book Review: A Portion for Foxes

I’m way behind with this review as I finished this one almost a year ago – yikes! A Portion for Foxes, by Jane McIlvaine McClary, was published in 1972, so there is definitely an ages-old feel to it, but that shouldn’t stop you for giving this one a chance. I learned of this book while[…]

Book Review: The Fortune Hunter

Earlier this fall I finished Daisy Goodwin’s The Fortune Hunter, and enjoyed it. It takes place in the nineteenth century English countryside among royalty, foxhunters, and the well-to-do. If you were a fan of “Downton Abbey,” be sure to pick this one up! I would describe this novel as part romance and part historical fiction.[…]

Book Review: Portrait of a Rider

I’d been looking for Vicky Moon’s coffee table book, The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onasis: Portrait of a Rider, for quite some time. It was always too expensive, but I was recently able to find one relatively cheap on ebay. (Others are now, finally, similarly priced on Amazon). Please believe me when I say[…]

Praise for “Where the Bluegrass Grows”

You know what I’ve learned about myself during the past few months? Though I am in the Marketing field (I’m the Marketing Communications Manager at my “real” job), I’m terrible at marketing my own book. Why is that? I think I know why – it’s because I’m still in the read it/but don’t read it[…]

Book Review: Horses & Homes

I love a good coffee table book, and Horses & Homes by Jenifer Jordan is just that. It was a very quick and easy read and provided some interesting insights to decorating your favorite indoor and outdoor spaces. I believe Jenifer took the photos herself, and they are lovely. However, I would have liked more[…]

Verb(ing) – XIII

Reading Right now I’m reading George Morris’ autobiography, Unrelenting. I’m only a few chapters in, but already I’m enjoying it – it’s classic George!   Writing I’m SO happy to have finally published my first novel, Where the Bluegrass Grows! What’s interesting is that I started working on its kind-of sequel a year ago, during[…]

Book Reviews: Eventing Series

I recently finished Pride by Natalie Keller Reinert, Book 2 in her Eventing Series. As I sat down to write this review, I realized that I never wrote my review on Book 1, Ambition. So, you are about to get two for the price of one! Ambition was published in 2014, and it’s here that[…]

Book Review: The Horse God Built

I received The Horse God Built from my brother-in-law, and fellow horseracing fanatic, for Christmas. If there’s one thing I love, it’s Secretariat. I reviewed William Nack’s book about him here, so I was overjoyed to read this one by Lawrence Scanlan. This book differs from most about the notorious Big Red because it focuses[…]
