It’s good to be home

After a fun-filled weekend in St. Petersburg at the Historical Novel Society conference and with my west-coast cousins, it’s good to be home.

I pitched to literary agent, Natalia Aponte, who requested full manuscripts of both Kobi’s story and Murder of Crows!  What a rush – that alone would have made the weekend worthwhile.  I also volunteered to help with agent pitches, making sure others made it in and out of their sessions smoothly.  I met some amazing people.

I also met one of my all time favorite authors, Diana Gabaldon.  She was quite lovely and very approachable.

I won a drawing for a gift basket from a debut author, Marci Jefferson, which started my Sunday off on a wonderful note!

After a poolside lunch with my cousins, we went to their barn and I shared some knowledge and many opinions about horse gut sounds, pawing, and keeping their horse, Sinister, moving forward and passed ‘mom’ when Rachel is riding.

It was a great weekend – but nothing beats coming home to Les meeting me at the door, Kobi’s loving nicker, and Cuzzin knocking me down with his wagging tail.

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
