About the author: Kasey (Kim) Riley is an equestrienne with over twenty years of horse ownership and Endurance riding to her credit. While never aspiring to place at the top of the events, her horses have seen that she has many top ten placements to their credit.

Due to the constraints of time, work, and life she has less than two thousand competitive miles at the longer distances and just under a thousand at Limited Distance. She enjoys riding her Missouri Foxtrotter even when she’s not working to condition him for competition.

She expects to back off from competing over the next few years as she feels it’s time to move into a different phase of her life. While she feels that horses don’t necessarily define her life, they enable her to keep interested and active as well as giving her a place to develop new story ideas. There’s nothing like a three hour ride in the woods to bring a new plot into focus. Her other interests, besides writing, include working in clay and painting ceramics. She lives with her husband of forty years on thirteen acres in Southeastern Oklahoma. Together they watch over three horses, four dogs, three cats and assorted chickens.
