Josie Malone lives at the family riding stable in the Cascade foothills where she organizes most of the riding programs, teaches horsemanship around her day-job as a substitute teacher, nurses sick horses, holds for the shoer, trains whoever needs it – four-legged and two-legged. She writes books in her spare time, usually from 8PM to 2AM, seven days a week after a long day on the ranch. When she can’t write, words and stories fill her mind. Even when she mucks the barn, Josie thinks about books or short stories or pieces in progress and maps out the writing in her mind. Josie has B.A. degrees in English and History, and her Master in Teaching degree. As a substitute school teacher, she loves the school breaks but she's just as busy, since there are 30 horses to look after on the ranch. She's had a lot of adventures over the years and she plans to write all about them.
