BLURB for Teach Me to Ride:
Caroline James wants to be the best investigative journalist London has ever seen. But until she has the money to leave the small town of Fayre Mead, she's stuck and her resentment is building.

Michael Canton will do anything in his power to silence his tyrannical father once and for all.

Together, they are a formidable team…but will their burning ambitions ultimately blow them apart?
Character Interview with Michael Canton
What was your childhood like?
I grew up surrounded by horses. My father was a renowned show jumper in the eighties and horses have been in my life forever. My relationship with my parents was…and still is, strained at best. I love my mom very much but the behavior she’s tolerated from my father is hard for a child to understand or forgive.
Now I’m older, I see she was a woman in love but also a woman who enjoyed the wealth and notoriety being married to my father brought. As for my father…let’s not go there.
You’ve recently spent a lot of time with a local journalist, Caroline James. Do you want to tell us about that?
::Fidgets before turning steely eyes:: She wanted a story from me–a story she hoped would catapult her career to the City. We met under tense circumstances. We needed each other.
And now things are…developing. That’s all I have to say.
What do you do for fun?
Training my horses is my work but also my fun. I’m with them as many hours as possible. Fitness is ultra important to me so I swim and play squash as much as possible. I’m also learning to have some down time recently – let’s just say decent food, great wine and a phenomenal sex life can turn a guy’s head from what he thought important before he met a certain someone.
Do you see children in your future?
Yes. As many as possible. I love kids and have a lot of love to give. If God blesses me and they come along, they will be my focus entirely.
