About the author
Kit Ehrman grew up near Baltimore City, and was educated at Wilson College. She came across Dick Francis’ In the Frame while she was working for the Government, read everything else by him she could lay her hands on, and went to work on a horse farm. She moved on to buying and selling horse farms, thinking up plots while mucking out. These plots became the Steve Cline series; about a wealthy young man who loses everything and is disowned by his father when he drops out of college, leaving him penniless at the age of 21. He takes a job as a barn manager, and starts to solve crimes. The series now numbers four titles.
