Award-winning author releases middle grade book

In “Finding Home,” Evergreen girl adopts rare-breed horse


Kids and horses were made for each other, especially when the kid is a young Colorado teen who dreams of owning a real mustang. But adopting wild horses isn't easy, especially when the young filly yearns to be back with her herd.

Denver native Corinne Joy Brown, a multi-award-winning author and horse owner for 40 years, brings together young Jesse Nolan from Evergreen and Curly Girl, an American Curly, a breed that sports a coat like a poodle in the winter, in her first publication for middle grade readers (ages 9-13) titled “Finding Home.”

Created with Colorado illustrator Ginny McDonald, the book is based loosely on McDonald's actual adoption of a wild filly descended from this rare breed. Author and illustrator both advocate for solving America's imperiled wild horse dilemma, and strive to create awareness, to inform, and to educate, all while entertaining young readers with an endearing and timeless tale.

The author and illustrator have formed their own publishing house, Loose Cayuse Productions, intending to bring quality stories about life with horses to children who love them.

The public is invited to join Brown and McDonald at the Tattered Cover Bookstore, Aspen Grove, 7301 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, for a reading by the author. A book signing will follow. For more information go to
