About the Book

Gloria’s father, Raymond Weldon is one of the biggest names in horse racing in 1947. The Weldons are considered royalty in the Sport of Kings as well as the small Kentucky town they live in. However, Gloria doesn’t receive royal treatment from her short-tempered father or her old-fashioned mother.

Raymond Weldon made himself a rich man through breeding and racing horses, but his winning record is suffering the impending threat of the Reed family taking over The Bluegrass Stakes and The Triple Crown Races.

As the racing season approaches, the Weldons and Reeds are not each others only threat. Both families (and the town they live in) are dealing with secrets and scandals leaving Gloria Weldon and Ben Reed, the youngest members of each family to try to find their own way in life, love, and the world of horse racing.

About the Author

Featured on Indie Author News:  Carrie Ann Watson
Author Carrie Ann Watson
Carrie Ann Watson is from Oaklyn, NJ. She attended Camden Catholic High School in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Writing Arts from Rowan University. Carrie began her writing career in college when she published a poem in the literary magazine Bridges in 2004. She later published another poem in the poetry anthology Poetry Vibes in 2005. Carrie published her first piece of literary fiction with her novella At Low Tide, which was released in September 2012. Falling Over the Finish Line is the first of her full length novels to be published and she is currently working on its sequel, which will be released in 2014 (exact release date still to be determined).

Carrie started writing poetry at a young age and found a love for writing short stories in college. Her novella At Low Tide started as a short story, but rapidly turned into a novella as each of the characters developed. After finishing At Low Tide, Carrie wanted to write a full length novel. She went back to a short story she wrote a year earlier and began expanding it, letting the pages start to flow until they developed into her first full length novel Falling Over the Finish Line. This novel combines Carrie’s love of writing romantic scenes, keeping readers in suspense, and of course her love of horse racing.
