Author signing at Horizon Books: Timothy Parsel, Broken Rib Ranch.

This is a book for horse lovers and anyone who has said “I do.” Growing up, Timothy Parsel lived a quiet existence only a stone’s throw away from Lake Charlevoix, where he spent his summers casting a fishing rod and riding the Ironton Ferry.

Horses were never in the picture – until one day in 1979, when he was smitten by a blue-eyed blonde and decided to accompany her on a trail ride to win her affections. From that point forward, his life would never be the same. (Nor his backside.)

In Broken Rib Ranch, Parsel reveals his fun-loving nature by spinning harrowing situations into comical tales about a wife who does everything in her power to possess as many horses as she can, while he struggles to hold his own against a species with a mind of its own.

Parsel uses his grasp of the saddle to put you in the thick of things; so, tag along for the ride of a lifetime.  Even the shortest jaunt is a train wreck waiting to happen.
