Patricia A. Guthrie
What inspired the book
About a decade ago a horse mob in the Chicago suburban area were murdering horses for insurance money. Quite a few horsemen were indicted, some jailed. That seed stayed planted in my head until about three years ago when I wrote this book.
What makes this book special to you?
In the Arms of the Enemy is dedicated to those horses lost to man’s greed and inhumanity and to those humanitarians whose mission is to save and protect them. The love I have for my characters and their horses have made this special. (It’s also my first published book)
What makes this a book that other people MUST read and WHY?
What people NEED to read this book and WHY?
And shows them another side of the horse industry.

What do you think motivates people to become authors? What motivated you to get into this unusual industry?
I think those people have a natural interest in the craft of writing and aren’t afraid to write bad drafts, then start rewriting. It’s just in you.
