About The Author



Betsy Kelleher grew up on an Iowa farm that cultivated her love of nature and animals. After earning a journalism degree from Iowa State University, she wrote radio commercials and then worked for a newspaper. She also wrote scripts for audio and video training programs. She’s the author of two books for horse lovers, based on her lifelong passion for horses. For twenty years, she wrote a column titled “Sometimes God Uses Horses” for the Illinois Horse Network newspaper, and some of her columns can be found at www.goduseshorses.com.

Betsy and her husband Russ live with their Boston terrier “Ribbons” near Granite City, Illinois, enjoying their mobile home on a lake near an American Bottoms project known as the Arlington Wetlands—the place this author calls her healing field.
