Delara has loved Waleron for over a century.

Torn between two men and hunted by another, Delara must fight her hardest battle—herself.

Cindy PatersonAbout the Author:

I am Xamien’s secret lover. Well, in my head I am and since I’m single this is completely allowed.
Some of you may ask, who is Xamien, don’t worry you will meet him soon enough, but no falling in
love with him. He is all mine.

Writing books is a fantastic way to have adventures that are impossible to have otherwise. I mean do you really want to fall in love with Waleron? He is so unstable and would never pick up after your dogs or clean the litter box. Not to mention the fact that he is always out killing disgusting grave robbing bug

Curling up with a good book and losing yourself to another time and place is the greatest reward.
Being able to feel a character’s emotions, their fears, pain and love. Now that is incredible. I relish in the books that stay with me long after they have ended. This is what I strive for in my writing. To give the readers, and myself, an escape into another world, my world. 

I have been writing since I was twelve. My parents, sorry mom and dad, would send me to my room for an hour every night to do homework, and instead I wrote stories. Oops, guess that is why I did so bad in math. 

I have never stopped writing since then and never will. It’s like an addiction, but a good one. I adore stepping into the shoes of a character and deciding their fate. The characters are why I write. I want to fall in love with them (even the bad ones), so that I care about what happens to them in a story. If I can’t care about the characters then why bother with the story. 

I live in Toronto with a menagerie of pets that keep me on my toes.

Guest Post
Natural Horsemanship

About twelve years ago I had a horrific horse accident. It was with my horse Spring who at the time I’d trained and owned for eight years. I competed with her in eventing for many years. For those who don’t know eventing, it is three disciplines, dressage, cross-country (galloping over natural fences) and jumping. I was pretty fearless until that day twelve years ago.

It was a beautiful fall day and I was going out for a ride on the trails with a couple of friends. We just left the stable and were walking along a path we’d been down a thousand times before. But on this day something happened and none of us know why. There was no birds flying in my path, no bees this time of year to sting her, no loud noises. My horse just went up on her hind legs and flipped over backwards landing on top of me.

I remember nothing except waking up in the hospital several hours later.

But what I took from this accident changed my way with horses and I’m indebted for it. I rode my horses, loved them, spoiled them, but what I never did was truly understand them. It led me to natural horsemanship or as some may call it ‘Horse Whispering’.

In FALL, I wrote a scene with Xamien and his two Andalusion horses and how he interacts with them. He shows how it is about respect, patience and trust—a partnership. Xamien is an Alpha male and tends to get whatever he wants, but with the horses he has earned their trust. Xamien has become the horse’s leader. Not out of force, but out of respect and understanding. That is the type of leader that a horse will follow anywhere. A horse that ‘wants’ to be with you. And having that is what makes natural horsemanship the most remarkable journey to experience.

Humans are naturally direct-line thinkers as we are predators while horses are prey animals. So, we have to start to think laterally in order to become ‘one’ with our horse.

It begins on the ground, which was the first shock. I mean who goes to the barn and doesn’t ride their horse? Well, it became me. I spent months with my horse just playing with her out in the fields or in a paddock. I had to forget everything I’d learned since I was a child about horses. I had to forget the ‘normal’ and learn how to communicate with my horse as another horse would.

Boy, the natural guys make it look easy. It’s not, but it is fun and it is so worth it. Having my horse run to me because it wants to spend time with me, having her loose in a field with other horses and she will follow me or do whatever I want with a simple body language cue from me. We run together and she stops when I do. I back up one step, she backs up one step. I give her a nod and a finger point and she goes sideways. There are no ropes, no bites, no bridles, no tying heads down, or strapping mouths shut. It is the truth.

It is raw. It is beautiful.

Today, I have two of Spring’s babies (although not babies anymore). They’re like the horses in my novel, Andalusions and they’ve only known the natural way. We have an incredible bond, a partnership.
Currently, I’m teaching Nashoda (my grey mare like Xadea in the book) how to lie down. I’m figuring it will be much easier to get on.
