Short Biography of Ellen J. Feld:

I’ve been writing stories since I was a very young child (a long time ago!) I have a series of books that I wrote in third grade – I have always loved to write. But I never considered actually becoming a writer. It sort of just happened. My writing career started to take shape about 25 years ago when I got my first paid job as a freelance writer for a horse magazine. I’ve written for horse magazines steadily since then. My first book was started when I was between magazine assignments and now I concentrate on my books – I find it much more rewarding.

I’ve been a horse lover my entire life and my stories all revolve around horses. There’s nothing more relaxing and satisfying as hanging around the barn. My horses are like big dogs and love to hang out with me and get (and give!) kisses. They are my inspiration and all my story ideas come from them and hanging around the barn.
