Susan Yawn Tanner blends her passion for horses with her passion for writing. Trouble in Summer Valley introduces readers to rescue horses who prove their worth in therapeutic riding. In Turning for Trouble, her own rodeo experience brings that rough and tumble world to life. Trouble in Action showcases the risky profession of stunt riding while giving a glimpse into historical reenactments. A Whisper of Trouble provides a glimpse into a talent practiced by few…the art of horse whispering. In Trail of Trouble, scenic trail riding brings people, nature—and murder—together. Published by KaliOka Press, these romantic mysteries feature a supersleuth in the form of a black cat detective. They are part of the Trouble Cat Detective series written in concert with some very talented authors.
Ms. Tanner’s historical romances—Highland Captive, Captive to a Dream, Exiled Heart, Fire Across Texas, Winds Across Texas, Storm Out of Texas, and A Warm Southern Christmas (a novella)—are published by Secret Staircase Books, an imprint of Columbine Publishing. The first five, as well as the novella, were previously published by Leisure Books.
When not at her desk, Ms. Tanner can usually be found in the barn or on a horse.
