About Lili Mahoney: Lili Mahoney's love for horses began before she could read. Now books and horses share equal space in her heart, along with a few humans and a random scattering of beloved animals. Though she earned her B.A. in English, her dream job would be to work as a photographer for National Geographic. She loves romance with twists and characters with flaws that she can identify with. Texas is where she was born and raised, and is her heaven on Earth!
About Barefoot Pastures: Barefoot Pastures begins with a familiar YA premise as it’s centered on the main character struggling to remain true to herself in a world that is testing every fiber of her being. However, that is where the journey veers down an unbeaten path.
Tory and Rusty have been a solid team for years, primarily because of her passion for horses, but also their need to compete in rodeo. As her friends and family attempt to pull Tory into the everyday world they exist in, Tory is faced with a dilemma. She must learn to balance her family life, a new love life, and her rodeo life with Rusty. Rusty is her best friend and one-half of the team that defines the champion cowgirl Tory believes she is. Without him, she has no definition of her self.
Tory is strong-willed and hothead, but those traits serve her well as she escapes death, survives cowardly men, the pain, the lies, and a passion that will threaten to tear her apart. Tory will have to hold tightly to what has always been important – friendship, loyalty, and always Rusty.
