[prMac.com] Sway, United Kingdom - Announcing the release of Epona - Kathryn Dalziel's first book in the 'Questairo Series, follows the incredible life journey of a special silver horse. From birth the foal Epona seems different. Short of money, her owners are forced to sell her, unknowingly into a life of deprivation, where she struggles for survival and has to endure abuse and near starvation. In her time of need Tia befriends her. But there is something about Epona! Who was her father? Has she inherited magical powers? What plight lies ahead for this gifted horse, entering a mythical world?
Kathryn Dalziel, a New Forest artist, has turned her hand to writing after many years working as an equine artist and portrait painter. 'Epona' the first book in her Questairo series has launched this month as an iBook, aimed at children over eight years old. It is beautifully illustrated by Kathryn with 68 individual paintings and drawings.
Kathryn grew up in Lyndhurst in the New Forest, where her passion for horses began with the family ponies. This knowledge and love of horses is evident in this first book and her classical art experience proves a solid foundation for the enchanting illustrations.
Both written and illustrated by Kathryn Dalziel, Epona has been a labour of love for the last 2 years. The lively paintings and drawings add excitement and tell the story for a must have children's book.
Kathryn comments, "I have been developing this story for a number of years. During this time I have felt such an affinity with this little horse, and by illustrating this book, it has allowed me to truly express her character. I have enjoyed the journey with this magical horse and really hope Epona captures the reader's hearts, like she has mine."
