Award-winning author Ellen Feld began writing about horses more than 20 years ago. At first she wrote for small, regional publications, but within a few short years, her work began to appear regularly in large, national magazines. In 2001, while waiting for her next assignment, Ms. Feld wrote a short story about a Morgan. That tale became the first chapter of Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse. The book went on to win a coveted Children’s Choices award, an honor bestowed jointly by the International Reading Association and the Children’s Book Council. To date, Ms. Feld has authored ten horse books, including seven in the Morgan Horse series. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two children, eleven horses, and assorted other pets.
