Jessie Haas grew up loving horses, drawing horses, and riding horses—just like Saige! She discovered a love of animals at the age of six, when her family bought a horse named Scamper. She read every book about horses she could lay her hands on—so it’s no wonder that when she began writing, her very first book was about horses. Now the award-winning author of more than two dozen titles, Jessie Haas loves to write books that get children excited about reading. She lives in Vermont with her husband and their horse named Robin.
