About Connie Peck
Connie grew up in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. As a child she traveled extensively with her family, visiting and living in no less than seven states in the west, southwest, and deep south. She started riding horses at the age of seven, gave her first successful riding lessons at the age of eleven, and trained her first filly at the age of fourteen. She's raised and shown Quarter Horses, and played in gymkhana and play-days.
As an adult, she continued traveling, visiting all but five of the US states and vacationed in Japan. She obtained a teaching degree in reading and science and taught in Texas and Alaska. In writing, she began sending manuscripts, under the guidance of her father, to various magazines, and continued to write into adulthood, seeing her columns in animal journals and in Christian newspapers.
The Black Pony series is her first published books and is a compilation of her experiences with horses throughout her life. And, yes, there really was a Midnight - a truly magical pony.
Titles By Connie Peck
Set on a quest no one believes in, and facing an unbeatable enemy, Kia leads her family into the wild.
Danger abounds, yet twelve year old Annie and her Welsh pony, Midnight, can’t wait to join the Shadow Riders in their annual overnight trek into the beautiful wilderness of the Superstition Mountains of Arizona.
The trail ride she’s dreamed of for so long is all she hoped for with wildlife, hidden oasis in the desert, and the stories etched in stone by nations long gone. But Annie’s telepathic connection with her pony, and the pony’s ability to communicate with other animals, reveal the secret protected through centuries by The Thunder God of the Apache Nation. And Annie with her pony are swept away in a rockslide. Will Annie and Midnight be doomed to forever haunt forgotten trails and join the ranks of those ‘gone missing’ before her?
Annie can sense the terror and pain of the stallion through her magical telepathic connection with the black pony, Midnight, and she suspects animal abuse. Can she unravel this mystery in time for Govad to run his big race, or will the stallion's mean streak force his owners to destroy him

But when Annie and Midnight finally meet, magic happens. Does the pony actually speak to Annie, or is it her own loneliness and longing for acceptance making her imagine impossible things. No time to ponder, she must draw from her horsemanship lessons from her Grandfather and work harder than she has in her entire life, if she is to save the pony from dying of colic.
Come ride with Annie and Midnight in their adventures, caring for each other, competing in play-days, riding together on trail-rides..
