Author Biography

I live in Oklahoma. I am retired from the Postal Service. My husband and I raise a few cows and have in the past raised show pigs. We are active in our local 4-H and FFA programs. Our Grand kids active in showing, so we spend time hanging out with them. I love writing children's books. I have wanted to do this for some time and now that I am retired I have time to do this. Being around animals I know that they have their own personality and that Is where my idea for the Easy 8 series comes from. I also love watching the PBR and I am a big fan.

Easy 8: The Big Event is an action book for children by Carrolyn Foster. Bull riding season is almost over and competition is fierce among the contestants. Every bull is determined to achieve the best score to win the Bull of the Year award. Winter Hawk and White Cloud are two of the Native American bulls who entertain spectators with their ceremonial dance honoring Mother Earth. The first bull riding contest commences with Mosshorn. He’s impatient with the cowboy riding him and can’t wait to toss him off his back. Sagebrush is next and he wants to give his cowboy the dance of his life. Flapjack, a snot slinging, smoke blowing bull, believes his rider won’t last the eight-second contest. Each animal has his own bag of amusing tricks to outwit their cowboys, but who will be crowned Bull of the Year?

Easy 8: The Big Event is an amusing action novella that will keep young children entertained. The illustrations are very lovely and each one depicts a bull who tells about the antics they perform with their witty remarks. Carrolyn Foster also includes a free audio book download so kids can follow along while reading the story. She has cleverly written about a popular event that teaches kids about bull riding, but her story is primarily from the bulls’ viewpoints, which is funny. They are smart and adorable and I know kids will be fond of them. Carrolyn Foster’s novella is a delight to read and is recommended.
