Wellington, FL (October 26, 2011) – Writer and rider Tami Hoag will be putting down the reins for a few days to head to Charleston, South Carolina, where the New York Times bestselling author will be featured as the headline speaker for the South Carolina Book and Author Event, an annual celebration of reading taking place at the Charleston Marriott. Hoag’s latest novel Secrets to the Grave is being released in paperback for the first time and her fans are eagerly expecting the third thriller in that series, Down the Darkest Road, which will go on sale on December 27th.
A prolific author with a huge fan base, the South Carolina Book and Author Event is already sold out. During the event, over 700 of Hoag’s fans will get the chance for a sneak preview of Down the Darkest Road. “I really enjoy the chance to speak with my fans, especially when we are talking about a new book,” Hoag said.
Hoag is known for her suspenseful page-turning novels and has 14 consecutive New York Times bestsellers to her credit with more than 35 million in print in more than 20 languages worldwide. She is also known for her skill in the dressage ring, and after the South Carolina event she will return to South Florida to prepare for the winter dressage season.
A professional dressage rider on the Grand Prix circuit, Hoag rides with Betsy Steiner and clinics with World Equestrian Games medalist Steffen Peters. During the winter show season, Hoag will compete her horses Lonestar and Bacchus de Light. “They are both Grand Prix horses and we will be showing in the CDIs and like all other Grand Prix riders in the country, my goal is to compete in the Olympic trials in 2012,” Hoag said, adding that while writing is her career her horses are her passion. “I am looking forward to speaking in South Carolina, but of course getting back in the saddle as soon as I get home makes me very excited. I missed most of the show season last year because of an injured knee, and now that it is healed I am really looking forward to being in the show ring this year.”
