Vivien Gorham has been writing stories and riding horses since she was eight years old. Raised in Minnesota, she has worked in the Northwest Territories, Alaska’s Denali National Park, and on a dude ranch in Montana. She now lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, with her family, two fluffy cats, and a dog called Niska. Her favourite horse book is The Horsemasters (1957). She is pictured here with Lukas at Restless Pines Farm. This is her first novel.
