Blackjack Cowboy

Book Five, Story Four

Blackjack Cowboy is a beautiful black stallion of the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse breed. When I first saw Cowboy at a distance, his beauty and elegance took my breath away…I just had to meet him! It was at an event where I was selling my children’s books and I left my table, walked right over to Cowboy, and petted him and talked to him. Only after my time with Cowboy did I introduce myself to his owner, Konny Troupe. Konny and I have since become good friends…I always love to visit her and Cowboy! Konny shared a story with me about her grandmother, Kathryn, and Cowboy and I included that story in this book before Story Five, “Honor Your Elders.”

What Our Readers Say…

Lauren Vowler
2nd Grade Teacher North Side Elementary, Harrisburg, PA
Cynthia came to North Side Elementary for an author’s visit assembly for students at our elementary school. Each classroom had prepared for her visit by reading Adventures at Green Apple Acres. The stories were engaging and fun. Each story taught a life lesson to which students could easily relate. The children were very excited for the presentation and Cynthia didn’t let them down. She was wonderful. She showed the kids pictures of the real animals that the characters in her stories were based on. She talked about the writing process and inspired our young authors to keep up their hard work.
