Kobi’s a Finalist!

I just found out that Kobi’s story was chosen as finalist for the Royal Palm Literary Award.  The winner will be announced in October at the conference (which I’m already signed up for).

Keep your fingers crossed – we all knew he had a fantastic story to tell…I love it when others feel that way too!

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.
