New book: Appaloosa Tales With A Christmas Spirit

28 07 2006

Melissa LaMaster of rural Rushville has published “Appaloosa Tales with a Christmas Spirit.” The compilation centers around three short stories filled with horses, Christmas spirit and human friends.

“Every year I write Christmas stories for the family instead of Christmas cards, and this evolved from my stories,” LaMaster said.

The writer, who grew up in Arizona and moved to Rushville in 1996 after leaving Beardstown, has raised, trained and showed Appaloosa horses for more than 20 years.


The book is available from Barnes & Noble and Amazon; the author’s website is here.
