One Frosty Christmas

The blurb:
Teased by the local kids for being a city girl and an amputee, Hannah Storey feels alone and isolated just like the old mustang she sees on the way to and from school every day.

The Great Pumpkin Ride

Running L Productions, Canada, 2004

The blurb:
If you camped out at a haunted cabin in the woods on Halloween night, would you leave your horse saddled? If you painted your pony purple and changed its name to Purple Lightning, will it run faster?

Running L Productions, Canada, 2005

The blurb:
When eleven year old Linda McCloud sets eyes on the beautiful, and very pregnant, palomino filly named Easter, all dreams of barrel racing fly out the window. When Mother Nature enters the fray, it’s up to Linda and her friends to save the life of Easter and her unborn foal.

Rogue wolves, cowboys with crushes, and cattle drives await Susie Stetler as she steps into an unwanted summer in the mountains with her grandmother and eight year old step-brother.

In the end, Susie must make a life-altering decision, one that could cost her family their lives.
