New book deal!

So, it's officially official, and I can finalllllly share!! I can't tell you how long I've been waiting to post this!

Author of POSSUM SUMMER Jen K Blom's THE SPOTTED PONY, about a girl from Virginia visiting her estranged father and his feedlot in Texas for the first time ever - learning just how fleeting real affection and friendship can be when she falls in love with the wrong horse, again to Julie Amper at Holiday House books by the Stringer Literary Agency

I grew up reading horse stories, was crazy about horses and to know that my Editor feels that this is a classic-in-the-making just totally stokes me out!

Horses FTW!
