Seventeen-year-old author Heather Pauly to participate in Tahoe 'Author's Corner'
A young Yerington author is scheduled to discuss her second published novel during a fall festival/chili cook-off on Saturday in South Lake Tahoe.
It is her second book about youth and horses, after her first novel, “Kon, The Bay Painted Stallion,” which she wrote and published at about age 13.
Pauly, whose illustrations are sprinkled throughout the book, drew on her experience growing up in Yerington and riding horses to create the story.

About the Author
I am 13 years old. I have always loved reading, but animals are my passion! I live in Yerington, Nevada with my mom, dad, sister, two dogs, a cat and two llamas. My mom homeschools my sister and I. She says I always have a story in my head. I have been writing poems, fiction stories and stories about the horses in my life since I was 8 years old. Riding horses is my favorite thing to do. I have always felt riding is the closest you can get to flying without a plane. I hope you enjoy Kon!
