Wendy Plumb

With her debut novel, ZZ Black, Author Wendy Plumb brings us on an unforgettable adventure between a girl and the horse she falls in love with, in a story that harkens back to the values that used to be the beating heart of Americana. ZZ Black teaches children to love unconditionally, but also to know when to let go, and how to deal with tragedy in life. Modeled very much on Wendy’s own experiences as a devoted, working single mother, the story is ultimately about triumph and redemption, but set in a very real world, where participation medals aren’t much use.

Inspired by Wendy’s relationship with her daughter, and written with a clarity and passion that is seldom found these days, ZZ Black is also the first of a series of stories from Wendy Plumb all designed to help children deal with the daily rigors of life in the Twenty-first century as they grow towards adulthood.
