Hi everyone! I thought I’d share an author interview I posted on my blog this month:
It’s a brand new year and we have a brand new book from the bestselling and award-winning author, Kathryn Lasky.
Horses of the Dawn: The Escape
by Kathryn Lasky
Here’s the synopsis from publisher:
The horses are in danger. They were rounded up by the two-legs and forced onto a boat to cross the wide ocean. The journey went badly and the boat was deemed too heavy, so the two-legs forced the horses into the sea and sailed away, leaving the herd to die in the deep.
By a miracle, the horses survived and made it to land. All but one — the ghost horse, the leader of the pack. Now it’s up to her daughter, only a filly, to take charge of the terrified herd. Stranded in a new land, surrounded by two-legs, will the horses find a way to live safe and free?
I had the opportunity to ask Kathryn some questions about her brand new book. (Questions are in bold, responses are below.)
Q#1: (The obvious question 🙂 ) Why horses? Were you into horses and horse books growing up?
Kathryn Lasky: Actually I was not into horses as much as one might think. I did like horse books a lot. But the impetus for writing this book came out of something other than just being a horse lover.
