About the author (2010)

Diane Grindol has always had an interest in horses. but watching them from the sidelines! Diane as a young girl always put "horse" at the head of her Christmas list and never got one. That didn't deter her interest in them. The summer she spent as a fourteen-yearl old on her uncle's farm in Oregon, riding daily, stands out as one of life's truly wonderful experiences. For that summer she had a horse, a bay Morgan-Arabian mare with a comfortable trot and willingness to race like the wind around the pasture. The rest of Diane's experience with horses lies in reading about them, attending horse shows and frequenting stables with her "Animal Painting and Drawing" class. She takes every opportunity to photograph horses she meets. Diane lives on the Monterey Peninsula on California's Central Coast. She is a busy pet sitter there. Her menagerie at home consists of several cockatiels, a blue-headed pionus parrot and a guinea pig. Ginny Tata-Phillips has loved horses longer than she has been writing haiku.Let's face it - at about age 11 she threatened to run away from home because her parents would not buy her a horse - not because they would not let her write haiku! She now lives in central Florida with 6 rescued hound dogs - 5 Bassets and one Dachshund - and pet sits and writes for a living. Ginny's dream is to make enough money for a Basset Plantation with, perhaps, room for a horse or two!
