A word from the author …
I wrote Rafferty Lincoln Loves… as I have always wanted to write a novel involving horses. I read many pony stories as a child, but have found that there are very few to read as a young adult / adult so I wanted to fill this void. I have been around horses from a very early age and spent many years saving to afford my own horse. Sadly, due to a road accident and then a fall from a horse, I can no longer ride. However, my passion and love for equines hasn’t diminished. Due to arm injuries from the accidents, I have had to dictate the novel, Rafferty Lincoln Loves… and I am donating the proceeds of the novel to the British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre – a charity I have supported since childhood.
Many thanks for supporting the novel and I do hope you enjoy it!
About the Book
A sensational and compelling, coming of age story for older young adults and not-so-young adults. Foreword by Frankie Dettori MBE.
Rafferty Lincoln doesn’t like horses. Not one bit. But when the popular high school girl of his dreams, Liberty Ashburn pulls him into a world of lead ropes and horse brushes, who is he to say no?
Except this isn’t any old horse. This is the missing racehorse, Profits Red Ridge. The horse Rafferty and three of his friends are hiding from the world. And Liberty Ashburn isn’t just any ordinary high school girl. How far will Rafferty go to win her over?

(Emily Williams has a firm place in my reading list – her debut novel, Letters to Eloise, was my pick of the year for 2017)
