What is the funniest thing a reader has ever told you? When meeting me on a trail while riding my horse, another rider said, “You wrote Riding Colorado, didn’t you? I recognize your horse.”
(She didn’t recognize me, mind you…just my horse!
If you were an architect what type of house/building would you design? Explain your answer please. I would create a house like the darling cottages found in the Hobbit. They are cozy and charming yet unique! Now that my children are grown and gone, I don’t need a big house anymore…too much to clean; I’d rather ride my horse or write my books.
Do you ever laugh or cry while reading your own books? Yes! I do this all the time and my husband teases me about it. He’ll walk in the room and I’m crying away and he just shakes his head. But this is good because I try very hard to write with passion and emotion and if it makes me laugh or cry then it probably will affect the reader the same way.
What is the last book you read? Why did you read it? I just finished “Killing Kennedy.” I love history and often mix non-fiction books in with fiction books.
What author, living or dead, would you most like to meet and what would you ask them? I would probably enjoy meeting Anna Sewell who wrote “Black Beauty.” She was a master at anthropomorphism and writing from the point of view of the horse. I love those techniques!
Who wrote your favorite book, the one you have read over and over again? What makes this book your favorite? I don’t have just one but besides the Bible and The Book of Mormon, one book that I have read over and over is “The Hiding Place” by Corrie Ten Boom. This book is a non-fiction account of a Dutch family that got sent to a Nazi concentration camp because they hid a Jewish people in their home. It is a lesson in forgiveness beyond equal.

C.M. Huddleston's Five Star Review of In the Heart of a Mustang
In the Heart of a Mustang tells of the angst of a young teen as he struggles to learn who he is and to make good choices for his life. The book is full of horses, the outdoors, and strong adult role models. Having been a parent of a troubled teen, I found this book to be emotional but heartfelt. Evans captures the thoughts and feelings of young Hunter and reveals his struggles in a way that might guide other troubled teens to realize they are not alone.
