Busy Time at Triple H Ranch & Another Finalist

It has been a busy week here at the Ranch.  After my relaxing visit to Lake Wales to celebrate Mother’s Day, it was time to get back to work.

Yesterday I gave a talk to a group of 100+ middle school students on the Civil War at Gamble Rogers Middle School as well as talked up Murder of Crows, which drew in not only a ghostly murder mystery, but my research into the book tied in with their unit of the Civil War & also mentioned Gamble Rogers in a personal ghostly experience! I did find the kids were WAY more interested in ghosts and murders than history itself – I’m positive I was too at their age!

Last night when I finally made it back home, I had an e-mail congratulating me on Kobi’s story becoming a finalist in the 2014 Indie Book Awards!  The winner will be announced by the end of this month, so keep your fingers crossed and I’ll keep you posted!

And it’s only Wednesday – so much more potential in this week!

If anyone is in the area and looking for something great to do with your kids (or by yourself), the talented artist Jean Drayovitch, who did the artwork for Kobi, and I will be at The Red Sable downtown St. Augustine this Saturday from 11:30-1:30.  I’ll be talking about Kobi’s story and Jean will demonstrating her artwork!  Come by and visit!

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.

    Did you have any trouble filling your 45 minutes, with the projector out?
