This Earth Day, Montana author Anne Severn Williamson will head to Los Angeles to share her newly released book series with fans at the LA Times Festival of Books, April 24-25th on the UCLA campus. The Fairy Lore of Ghost Horse Hollow will be on display at the London Book Fair as well. The Holly King, Part I of the First Triad, begins the magical adventures in the Appalachian Wilderness one hundred years in the future. Never before have the crossroads between Reality and Popular Fantasy seemed so urgent and so enticing! With heartfelt concern for our planet, the Ghost Horses are galloping from "Nation to Nation and Shore to Shore" with a message of hope and peace! Curious readers are invited to visit the popular Web site for Ghost Horse Hollow, which is attracting worldwide attention, including visitors from seven continents. http://www.ghosthorsehollow.com
The Ghost Horses are real characters throughout the nine part saga. See them gallop in "The Song of the Earth" on You tube, as part of The Holly King Book Trailer. Anne and her husband Jack, have carefully put together a small herd of rare equines known as the Ghost Horses of Central Montana. The bloodlines of these horses originated in the foothills of eastern Kentucky. "They are a National Treasure," says the author, "for the naturally gaited Mountain Horses helped the early pioneers to plant their crops, transport their mail, and carry their children to school. These horses were highly sought after as cavalry mounts during the American Civil War, due to their easy traveling motion. They also came West with the first cowboys to work the open ranges. One Mountain Horse breed was once placed on the Critically Endangered Species list." The Ghost Horse herd features cremello and perlino equines, with pale blue eyes and cream or translucent gold coats, manes, and tails. Readers will fall in love with these characters and be able to keep track of them on the Ghost Horse Hollow Web site. Their inspirational beauty is the basis for the adventures in Ghost Horse Hollow, an imaginary horse farm in the Appalachian woodlands during the aftermath of dramatic climate shifts.
Mrs. Williamson self-published the first novel in the series, in order to get the Ghost Horses up and running. She is now eager to shift the nine part series to the realm of traditional publishing in order to reach more readers of all ages. The Holly King was written with Middle Grade and YA readers in mind, but was quickly embraced by adults as well. Fantasy book enthusiasts may look forward to reading about the Moonlight and Starlight Fairies and brave woodland creatures, such as Three Toe the Bear, the Chief Librarian of the Fairylands.

Native American perspectives are explored through the lives of the MacKennon homesteaders and their eclectic allies. I have also drawn upon the teachings of the ancient tribes of Northern Europe in order to re-evaluate the perspectives of early hunter/herdsman societies," comments the author. With the wisdom of the Ancestors as a platform of hope, Anne Severn Williamson's The Fairy Lore of Ghost Horse Hollow, pulls each reader into a realm of magic, mayhem, and mystery ... all for the sake of our planet.
