About the Author

When Sharon Lee Mendes was in the second grade her teacher read "Brighty of the Grand Canyon", by Marguerite Henry. That became her favorite book, and the inspiration to start writing stories about her favorite subject, horses.

In 1974 Sharon graduated from nursing school, and was finally able to buy her first horse, a dappled gray Quarter horse named Pippin.In addition to working as an RN for almost thirty years, she has owned and trained many horses. She is a co-founder of a 4H riding club named the Bourne Equestrians, and has taught children in the community to ride. She became a certified riding instructor and spent ten years as a competitive barrel racer.

Sharon has kept a daily journal for years. She has recorded the adventures she and her husband John and daughter Jessica have had with the ponies and horses on their small farm in Pocasset, Massachusetts. They all share a fascination with how the different animals interact with each other. Her first book," Bravo and Glee of Cape Cod", is based on her black Thoroughbred race horse, and white Shetland pony. Her Laura Lee Farm book collection also includes " Who is Bella?", the story of a new puppy that comes to the farm, and "Crossing Laura Lee Farm", the story of a snapping turtle that must cross the paddock so she can lay her eggs in the lake close by.

Sharon has recently joined Peace for Ponies, a local organization that helps rescue abused and neglected horses. A portion of the proceeds of her newest book, "Ryan, A Horse's Tale", will be donated to them.
