I absolutely love the second picture. You can feel the race, the jockey's tension, and the grace and strength of the horses. Great work.

Great looking site! Looking forward to reading more! Believe it or not, I think I have one children's book in me, so it will be fun to pick your brain!

Wow! I didn't realize how talented you are. I love horses and feel like I've just been to Louisville, KY.
Thanks!

Wow, awesome photos! Nice site too. Good luck on your books. They look great. Do you market them to homeschoolers? I homeschooled my kids for nine years, and these look like the kind of books I would have been very interested to buy.
