Author Biography

Mary Fichtner grew up in the western lifestyle with horses which gave her a bold western identity. Rodeo was her sport from 10 years old through college. She is a graduate of the University of Wyoming and her cowgirl spirit has grown stronger through life experiences and living in the cowboy state. The strong roots of the western lifestyle and horses gave her the character to manage the challenges and change required for a military wife and mother of four. Mary learned why horses have always owned her heart after being certified in equine assisted learning to help veterans and families. "They truly teach us about ourselves and others and heal broken hearts." To be able to share her love of the west along with cowboy ethics and have her daughter illustrate her tales is the grandest adventure. Her hope is that you will laugh and smile as you see a little bit of life through a horse's eyes and learn to dance in your storms. Rozi grew up in a horse loving family in Wyoming and developed her own passion for everything equine. She has competed in just about every horse event offered in the great cowboy state from jumping to showmanship to rodeo. She is attending college at the University of Wyoming where she competes on the rodeo team and is pursuing a degree in Art Education. Her talent in art and design along with her love of horses brought her to an unplanned adventure of illustrating a book about one of her favorites. Rozi and Rusty and shared many ribbons and adventures and through her skills in watercolor she hopes to share him with readers everywhere. "Everyone should meet Rusty!" Rusty lives in a beautiful place in the west by the Platte River where he enjoys grazing and gentle breezes. He is a friend to all.
