CONTRIBUTED BY CORINNE JOY BROWN
Kids and horses were made for each other, especially when the kid is a young Colorado teen who dreams of owning a real mustang. But adopting wild horses isn’t easy, especially when the filly yearns to be back with her herd.
Greenwood Village resident Corinne Joy Brown, a multi- award-winning author and horse owner for 40 years, brings together her heroine, young Jesse Nolan from Evergreen, and Curly Girl, an American Curly (a breed that sports a winter coat like a poodle) in her first publication for Middle Grade readers (ages 9-13) titled Finding Home.
Created in tandem with noted Colorado illustrator Ginny McDonald, the book is based loosely on McDonald’s actual adoption of a wild filly from this distinct breed. Author and illustrator both advocate for solving America’s imperiled wild horse dilemma and strive to create awareness and to inform and educate while entertaining young readers with an endearing story.
Children and parents alike will find valuable life lessons in this heartwarming read.
Author and illustrator have formed their own publishing house, Loose Cayuse Productions, primed to bring quality stories about life with horses to children who love them.
The public is invited to join Corinne at the Tattered Cover Bookstore, Aspen Grove, 7301 South Santa Fe Dr, Littleton, CO 80129, on Sunday September 22 at 2:00 p.m. A reading by the author and book signing will follow. For more information go to mustangcurly.com.
