Mattie is a wife, mother, author and librarian we met at Midwest Parent Educators Expo recently. She has written historical novels with the stories told from a horse’s point of view. Check out Mattie’s books at appaloosybooks.com. My granddaughter was pleased to be able to buy one of Mattie’s books with her own money. Both Mattie and I had some great young readers come to our respective booths.
