Shiloh

Book One, Story One

My Arabian gelding, Shiloh, and I first met when he was four years old. I traveled to Maryland to see his half-sister, Valle Girl, and perhaps purchase this Arabian mare. It was love at first site as I walked by this curious colt on my way down this man’s barn aisle! Shiloh captured my heart with his sense of wonder and personality. I could almost read his mind asking questions about who I was while at the same time craving my attention. Eventually, I bought both Shiloh and Valle Girl, and they still live at my farm. Shiloh is the favorite of many visitors to the farm, winning their hearts as well…he is a real character! Children have drawn pictures of him, and adults love him just as much. There was no contest to which horse would be in Book One, Story One, the first story of my first book, “Shiloh and the Barn Mouse”…it had to be Shiloh!

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.
