From Darcy

I have to say that Cat is like the most backwards person there is in the entire world when it comes to computer stuff. The previous blog was signed by her, but the fact is she dictated it to me and I posted it. No matter. Payback will happen in due time and when it does, I guarantee it will be a lot of fun! Cat is like way too serious sometimes and Jon, well, he’s all down to business, too. Someone has to stir things up around here. It might as well be me.

Cat doesn’t know that I am leaking a little bit of The Opium Equation to you in advance, so don’t tell her it was me. It will be our little secret. She’ll never know because she will never get on to check this blog. Besides, it’s just the cast of characters and that will help you learn a little about those of us who DO blog here. Think of it as a public service. Here you go.

Darcy Whitcomb (extraordinary youth kid)

Cast of Main Characters

Cat Enright:  A horse trainer near Nashville, Tennessee. She is twenty-nine, single, impulsive, vulnerable, a tiny bit rude, and the owner of a small stable.

Bubba Henley:  Budding juvenile delinquent and ten-year-old son of a neighboring trainer. Cat worries when no one can find him.

Hill Henley:  Bubba’s no-account father and fourth generation Tennessee Walking Horse trainer.

Glenda Dupree:  Retired movie star and neighbor of both Cat and the Henley’s. She’s the kind of person everyone loves to hate.

Adam Dupree:  Glenda’s nephew. He is a failed actor, a songwriter wanna-be, and likes Cat very much.

Opal Dupree:  Glenda’s aged mother. Opal knows a terrible and ancient secret that may help Cat, but her mind wanders.

Fairbanks:  The ancestral antebellum home of the Henley family, now owned by Glenda Dupree.

Col. Sam Henley:  Long dead Civil War era builder of Fairbanks, and Hill’s great, great grandfather.

Agnes Temple: Ditsy woman of a certain age with electric blue hair. She owns two horses in Cat’s barn.

Hank:  Cat’s incorrigible Beagle-mix puppy.

Martin Giles: Local cop. Young, but smart.

Jon Gardner:  Cat’s stable manager and right hand. No one, Cat included, knows exactly where he’s from, which is the way he likes it.

Darcy Whitcomb:  Seventeen-year-old daughter of a prominent dot com entrepreneur. She’s a little spoiled, but Cat loves her like family.

Carole Carson:  Riding student neighbor of Cat’s, and the wife of country music super star, Keith Carson.

Keith Carson:  A neighbor and country music super star. Keith is out touring and has only a very small part in this story, which is too bad as he’s really quite a hunk.

Robert Griggs:  Quiet hospital nurse and a riding student.

Frog:  A trouble-making punk friend of Bubba’s.

Brent Giles: Martin’s older brother. A small animal veterinarian from Clarksville.

Buffy Thorndyke:  Young reporter with blue blood in her veins and air in her head.

Sheriff “Big Jim” Burns: An election is looming and the sheriff wants an arrest. Any arrest.

Sally Blue: Young, possibly psychic, red roan Appaloosa mare owned by Agnes Temple. Sally is very loyal to Cat.

Peter’s Pride: Tall, older black gelding owned by Darcy Whitmore. Petey is a calming influence on Darcy, but he also likes to play.

Hillbilly Bob: Bay, aged gelding owned by a local orthopedic surgeon. Cat swaps training fees for treatment of broken bones and has won several championships on Bob.

Glamour Girl: Dingbat yearling filly. Gorgeous, but brainless.
