It is a labor of love to read "Horses Nine" partly because Ford knows so entirely what goes into the making of a proper horse, and a proper man. Though horses of course dominate, the men are very far from being mere incidentals, or even a sort of human background for equine portraits.

When Micheal Maxwell isn't travelling the world with his wife, you are most likely to find him somewhere between Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. If you do, and you have a chat with this interesting man, take care - you might just end up in a scene of one of his books! Maxwell loves writing character-driven mysteries about everyday people, books with heart that readers can relate to.
