Dear Reader,

I have been asked what inspired me to write and publish, "Mystery at Silver Key Stables." I have always loved writing and horses so it seemed natural to me that I would write a children's book about horses. I wanted to donate the net proceeds from the sale of my book to organizations that rescue and provide safe habitats for horses, which is how Charity Book Series®, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit corporation was founded, with me as acting President.

I ultimately became a member of a community that shares my concern for the general welfare of horses. Some of those individuals are well known while others are quiet heroes whose intervention on behalf of horses may be known only to a few. I am proud to stand among them.

For the love of all horses,

Alexandra Gritta (Signature)Active Teen For Animals
