This past summer, at the American Horse Publications Equine Media Seminar, I met THE Carly Kade! In addition to being a fellow blogger, Carly is the author of the best selling In the Reins series along with a slew of other extraordinary accomplishments. Here’s a link to her web site where you can purchase her books and learn more, Carly Kade Creative.
Carly is energetic, friendly, and just plain FUN to be around! It was easy to develop an instant connection. That’s why I was so delighted when she invited me to be a part of the Equestrian Author series that she writes on her blog. Carly’s interview with me went live yesterday and I’m positively thrilled to include on it here today! I hope that you will give it a read and follow Carly today! Sound like fun? Then read on!
