A Book and a Chat with Nell Walton
My guest on today’s show is Nell Walton. She has degrees in journalism and biology from the University of Arkansas, spent many years as a professional journalist and worked as an intern for former President Bill Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas.
Nell as well as being founder and managing editor of the online equestrian news magazine, The AllHorses Post (www.allpetspost.org/allhorsespost), is now the author of the terrific “western mystery” The Bone Trail.
I say Western mystery, but her debut novel is a whole lot more than that.
The Bone Trail does not fit neatly into any genre. It is set in the West, but is not a classic Western. It has romantic elements, but is not a classic romance. It has fantasy elements, but is not a fantasy. It centers around horses, but it is not a horse opera!
About “The Bone Trail”
The Bone Trail is the story of investigative journalist and horsewoman, Kate Wyndham, who is sent to northern Nevada to do a story on the disappearance of two wild horse advocates. When Wyndham attempts to gain information from the FBI and local authorities she is stonewalled. She turns to Jim Ludlow (who has been called the Sexiest Man in Print (SMIP)!, a local rancher who lives on an Indian Reservation near where the advocates disappeared. Ludlow, a Shoshone Indian horse “whisperer” agrees to try to help Wyndham and they begin a search for answers that may cost them everything the hold dear – it may even cost them their lives.
The story as we heard during the program was inspired by two actual events, which molded into such a great story that people are already clamoring for a follow up novel. So am sure we will hear a lot more of Nell Walton.
So listen to an interesting and hugely entertaining show as I spend thirty minutes sharing "A Book and a Chat with Nell Walton"
