In the Corral
    with Carol

Hi, I’m Carol Kent Bartolet and welcome to my updated web page, “In the Corral.” You see, I’ve never liked being too far away from my equine pals and love being able to look out my office windows and see horses cavorting in their pastures. Around here, horse cavorting mostly means kicking down fence boards, snapping off water hydrants to make a wading pond, and leaning on gates until they’re all U-shaped. My husband, Don, and I raise registered Appaloosas and some very cute mini horses. We also found room for three Chihuahuas, a bulldog, a cat, and a parakeet. The pets take up a lot of time and sometimes a lot of patience, but we don’t mind at all. We would both rather be mowing pastures or fixing fences or playing with horses than doing anything else. Typically, there is no real zeal for housework around here since we seem to live outside. In Florida we’re lucky to have great sunny weather that so far has outweighed the dark side—hurricanes, alligators, monster bugs, hungry sharks, high insurance premiums, and road rage.

 That said, with things fairly quiet in my home office during the summer break from my job as a school nurse, I’ve finally completed my second novel. Yea!! So for all of you who have been asking, it is now published and available! The title is Fatal Favors and readers will find their outlandish Favors character, Emily Vanderhorn, on some new adventures. This time she’s joined forces with Mikki, forming a dynamic duo taking on a hazardous and covert mission. Family loyalties are tested when Mikki falls in love…with a possible terrorist! Look for a special link to a free ‘sneak peak’ at Fatal Favors.  Watch the ‘news’ section of this web page for the latest information on special happenings. Events may include anything from book signing times and locations to the arrival of new foals or horse show competitions. There’s a new link to our Sun Spots Ranch that will take you to see the horses and anything new that is happening there. We have two stallions for stud service and we sometimes have quality horses for sale. The “Corral” is supposed to be a newsy place, so be sure to look through the different pages. The ‘Book Store’ link will let you order books on-line or even autographed books directly from me.  I love to hear from readers if I can’t meet you in person, so be sure to email some feedback or questions if you like. Keep in touch and keep reading!
