About the author:
Snoopy (aka One Flashy Investment) is a California boy who loves to throw things so much, he'd have been a major league baseball pitcher if he only had opposable thumbs. He was happy to dictate his story to his writing partner, equine patron, and MomToo, Gayle Carline.
Gayle gives her first horse Frostie all the credit for her writing career. She told her husband, Dale, that she wanted to write, so in 1999 he bought her a laptop for Christmas. A year after that, he gave her horseback riding lessons. When she bought Frostie, she finally started writing.
These days, she divides her days between writing humor columns for her local newspaper, writing mysteries for a larger audience, and spending quality time with her family: husband Dale, son Marcus, and four-legged kids Katy the cat, Duffy and Lady Spazzleton the dogs, and of course, Frostie and Snoopy.

From the Horse's Mouth
One Lucky Memoir
"When I was a young horse, I thought if I wasn't always good, I could at least be useful. Then I broke my leg."
When Snoopy was three years old, he won the 2007 Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Association Trail Futurity. His trainer and his owner had his career mapped out-he would be campaigned around the circuit and qualify to be invited to the AQHA World Show.
Then in 2008, Snoopy broke his left hind sesamoid, a small bone in the leg. This injury can mean anything from surgery to euthanasia. Surgery didn't guarantee he could be ridden again, much less shown.
In the tradition of Black Beauty, this is Snoopy's own story, told from his special point of view. He tells of his youth, his training, his injury, and his long fight to return to the show arena, to prove he's the same horse he always was, only different.
