Jan Young, author of The Orange Slipknot, and the sequel, Starting the Colt, received a BA in Behavioral Science from Pacific University in Fresno, CA before going on to study writing with the Institute of Children’s Literature.
Experience and knowledge for her books came in part by living for many years with her husband and two sons in the ranching community in Humboldt County, Nevada. Now a remediation tutor and piano teacher in Winnemucca, Nevada. Jan enjoys working with children. Her love and understanding of horses are obvious when she and her husband provide horse clinics, lessons, and training.
