To Patty, best of sisters, best of friends.
I would like to express my appreciation to two particular friends who were of invaluable assistance to me in the writing of The Horsemasters
First, thanks to Edith Layton Felber, who helped me sort through a chaos of ideas and characters to come up with the shape of a novel.
And I would also like to acknowledge Elsa, my beautiful bay thoroughbred mare, whose shadow stands behind all of the horses in this book.

Book description
In the lush green valleys of southern France, long before the mists of time, as humankind takes its first defiant steps to tame the earth, one special tribe among the Kindred is ruled by the Priestess Arika. But a feared change is coming, for the distant thunder of hooves brings terrifying whispers of a fierce race of conquerors whose astonishing horsemanship gives them the power of conquest...a power that threatens to enslave the Kindred women, murder their men, burn their villages.

It is left to exiled Ronan, Arika's handsome young son, to meet this challenge. bUt first he must reunie with his true love, Nel, whos charisma and magical talents with animals may help him master hte wild horse. and as the young lovers and their band of loyal renegades race to stem the invaders relentless advance, the grasslands quake with the sounds of battle to determine the Kindred's destiny.
Against the lush backdrop of a vanished primeval world, this spell binding novel tells the timeless tale of adventure and conflict, rivalry and revenge, love and passion.
This is also the historical clash of the peaceful matriarchal tribes and the warring patriarchal tribes.
