In a boring law office surrounded by paper on a cold, January day, I looked up and saw him. There, as bright as the sun that flooded the window beside me, stood a black horse with glowing eyes. He had a worrisome expression as he pawed the ground and nickered as if to say “listen up; I have something to tell you.”
I couldn’t get that troubled horse out of my mind and as I journeyed home that evening, my thoughts were ablaze with plot lines and supporting characters for his tale. I rushed to my desk and began drafting what became The Stolen Herd and part of the following book. As the story began to take shape, I soon realized that writing it was going to consume every aspect of my life. I was not mistaken.
Am I crazy? Quite possibly, but it was that vision that led me down an agonizing six year path of befuddled planning, rough drafts, relentless re-writes and painstaking editing to here- this post. It’s been a lengthy journey and I still have a long way to go.
I hope you, dear Reader, will come along for the ride.
