About the Author
Julie was born in Iowa in a pumpkin patch next to the Duck Creek mall. Her parents were out Christmas shopping one day and stopped by. Somehow she managed to fool them into taking her home. They put her under the Christmas tree where she turned into a baby. Baffled, her parents have never since bought a pumpkin for Christmas, though she does have one other sibling, a younger sister who was born in the spring 6.5 years later. She moved to Ohio with her family when she was young where she met one of her BFF's and spent the better part of 14 years. She grew up around boats and spent as much time with horses as she could. She doesn't remember learning to ride and has since concluded that she probably learned to ride before she was born. Her first masterpiece was a picture book about Willy the Bookworm. Amazingly enough, this masterpiece survives today, and she even thinks she knows where it is. This was followed by many Nancy Drew style mysteries in elementary school, followed by a longer science fiction piece in high school. She never intended to be a writer, she was going to be a paleontologist. Her 6th grade reading teacher was the first person that planted the seed in Julie's head that she was going to be a writer some day. Thanks Mrs. Fox... it's not all your fault, but you sure helped the process along. Julie didn't believe her at the time, but she believes her now. In college Julie studied Geological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines until she found out she could get a degree in horses. Firmly set on that plan, she moved to Fort Collins and got her BS in Equine Science. After she graduated, she naturally got a job working in the computer/internet industry. She's had many jobs over the last few years but a few things have remained consistent in her life: her love for horses and her passion for writing.

Anna moves to Colorado with her parents after the tragic loss of her grandmother. Although she shared her grandmother’s love for horses, she does her best to find a home for them. Now this is when things begin to get crazy. Strangers break into her home in the dead of night, forcing Anna to run away. This may sound bad, but there is a bright side… Anna discovers that her grandmother had a secret life. In fact, she gets to travel between different worlds to accomplish her grandmother mission, thanks to her horse, Sabaska. Sabaska is not your average horse. It is not just a beautiful Arabian mare. Then why is she so special, you may ask? Well, go grab this great book to find out!
I absolutely loved the characters and the world the author created. Anna has to face tough situations, and her journey isn’t always an easy one. That coming of age story is so unique, and Anna’s adventures will most definitely appeal to both young and older readers. I believe that even for those of you who are not necessarily horse lovers, you will find that charming tale very entertaining. It is well-written, and full of surprises.
I can’t wait to read the sequel to know what happens next!
Even if you don't love horses, you will enjoy this book. But if you are a horse lover - oh boy, be prepared to become a fan and anxiously await the second book - as I am!
I have handed this book to my husband and he is now reading it.
Nice job J. A. Campbell, looking forward to reading the others you have written.
