Ellen Feld

Ellen is an active author, currently working on her fifteenth book. She is an International Reading Association "Children's Choices" winner (twice) who began writing about horses more than 20 years ago. At first she wrote for numerous regional horse magazines, but within a few short years, her work began to appear regularly in large, national publications. In 2001, while waiting for her next assignment, Ms. Feld wrote a short story about a Morgan horse. That tale became the first chapter of Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse. The book went on to win a coveted Children's Choices award, an honor bestowed jointly by the International Reading Association and the Children's Book Council. Ms. Feld has authored fourteen books, including seven in the "Morgan Horse" series. To date, she has sold over 100,000 copies of her YA novels and continues to write and market her books whenever possible. As a self-published author, she was frustrated at the way so many review sites treated self-published works so she started Feathered Quill Book Reviews to help other authors get much needed publicity for their books.
