A Damn Fine Hand is a love story of women who love race horses.  It’s told in scenes that I’ll update on Mondays.  My goal with the story is to make people – particularly people whose passion drives them to feats of great courage and of great compassion – feel connected.  I’m encouraging discussion by publishing this as an online serial.  Chime in and share your story….
