The Horses Know
(Book 1 of The Horses Know Trilogy)
Available in audio!
The human race has almost destroyed itself and those who remain know that they must avoid repeating the mistakes of their ancestors. But it's extremely difficult. Without horses, it would be impossible.
Amarilla is one of those chosen by a horse as a Bond-Partner. She looks forward to a lifetime of learning from her horse and of passing on the mare's wisdom to those seeking help. But then she discovers that she is the one for whom the horses have all been waiting. The one who can help them in return.
In order to give the horses the help they need, Amarilla will have to achieve that which has never been attempted before. Only her beloved mare can give her the motivation, the courage and the strength to believe she can succeed. If she does, a new era will dawn for horses and humans alike...
"The Horses Know Know opens our hearts to the invisible, to the energy of the world. It shreds our wobbly beliefs that we humans have a corner on the planet’s intelligence. It does this with wisdom and with joy. I don’t know how Lynn Mann reached the depths, but she got there and she takes us along with her. The Horses Know inspires us to understand that we all are in this together, every being, and that compassion is the key not just to how we will survive, but to how we will thrive. I couldn’t be more in awe or more grateful to her."
writer of Edward Scissorhands,
and writer/director of Black Beauty

The Horses Rejoice

Amarilla, Infinity and their friends set out on a journey to find the Woeful but their search becomes something so much more due to a courageous chestnut mare, a lone Woeful youngling and numerous herds of wild horses who seek their help along the way. But the friends never forget what they agreed to do. They must reach the heart of the Woeful community. And then they must be willing to risk losing everything...

Will is adamant that he can succeed where the Horse-Bonded have failed, and bring the outcasts home. But his forceful personality constantly gets in his way. He is the key to the future, but if he is to play his part, he must allow a herd of wild horses to show him how to be the person he needs to be.

The Horses Unite
(Origins of The Horses Know Trilogy)
When FE88 qualifies as an enforcer of The City Of Power’s rules, her life becomes marginally more secure, not least because she has the love and support of a member of the city’s underground resistance to help her stay sane.
But then she discovers that the only light in her otherwise dark existence will be assigned to her as her next kill. She resolves to resist the regime that gives her no choice but to obey, and save the life that is hers to take – but is shocked to learn that it is her own life that must be preserved at all costs. Without her, the future of both enforcers and humans is uncertain. Even with her, it isn’t guaranteed, for her hatred of human nature runs deep.
When the city falls, it is a horse who proves to be the two races’ best chance of co-existing. If he can succeed, the pathway laid down by the horses of the past will remain open. But some tasks are too great for one horse alone…
