'If you like horses, feel good stories or most likely both, then Race To My Dream is a must read. I defy anyone not to shed a tear or two as Steven and his beloved Alexander fulfill their ambitions of competing in a race. It would takes ages to describe all emotions I felt reading this beautifully told story but what is for sure is that I felt much better for the experience. You will too.'
Tom Segal - The Racing Post

Death never simply settles for the life it claims.
It stole all of our lives that night and while it put my husband in the ground, it left my four children and me behind.
After an ugly year of grief, something had to change.
My sister suggested open spaces, big skies and fresh air in the heart of Wyoming. We settled into our shared estate the best we could until I met my new neighbor.
Arrogant, bossy and rude; Reid was easily the worst person I'd ever met. I'd decided to write him off entirely until I realized he was the only local horse instructor.I'd heard that if I could get my kids onto a horse, they'd start to heal. Desperation had me creating an alliance with him.
Envy had me craving the connection he had with them.
Distracted by the newness of our situation, I missed how close his demons danced to my ghosts. While I was ignorantly letting him take my heart, it was too late to realize... He'd already stolen it once before.

When a young man left his years of naval service behind him he yearned for something different. A challenge, of course, but something where he could be at one with nature, find his own space in his own company but also enjoy the friendship of others when the opportunity arose.
So began an epic trip by bicycle through some of the most stunning scenery the United States has to offer, crossing mountains and rivers in a quest to reach the one place of beauty he always wanted to return to.
From Ohio to the Rocky Mountains, the road was often hard but never dull and the kindness of strangers was always in abundance. Venison steaks provided by campers at a lake, romantic encounters with beautiful women, offers of accommodation when the weather took a turn for the worse and meeting other wanderers on the route, all made for a journey that was as varied as the roads traveled.

A coming of age story... When Hap Cameron left home at the age of 21, he decided he wanted to live and work in every continent before he turned thirty. He knew he had plenty of time, so how hard could it be? Bloody hard, as it turned out. But his goal would change his life in ways he never expected. If he'd known that over the next eight years he'd end up locked in a US jail cell, almost get killed by gangsters in Africa, and that the quest to reach Antarctica would almost break him, Hap might have spent more time focusing on his other two goals-to have fun and meet foreign girls. Eight years, seven continents, one hell of a ride.
