I am a writer, editor, and part-time archer who lives on a horse farm in the Florida panhandle.

Three or four books after I’d decided I’d had enough of Alexander McCall Smith’s Isabelle Dalousie series (and read them anyway), The Forgotten Affairs of Youth came out. What a surprise to find that, except maybe for the first volume, it is the best of the lot. Let me go back for a minute.

The first of the Isabelle Dalhousie series was entitled The Sunday Philosophy Club. In it, McCall Smith se... Read more of this blog post »

My Wife Is A Horse (Poetry)
0 chapters   —   updated Aug 30, 2012 02:29PM
Description: Poetry collection. Pete LeForge is a practiced whose poems of life and the land age like fine wine. This collection details his move from city life to managing a 50-acre horse farm. In learning to ride and care for the horses with his dressage instructor wife Sara Warner, LeForge finds his strong poetic voice among the horse stalls and pastures of Black Bay Farm, and in the copses of the surrounding woodlands in rural north Florida. Pete LeForge is as hard at work mowing pastures and rebuilding fences as he is writing fierce, crafted poetry and figuring out how Americana fits into the bigger world picture. He’s an honest, plainspoken poet of the 21st century, the Wendell Berry of North Florida.
