About The Author

 

 

Dorothy Pedersen is an award winning writer and public speaker. She has an Honours Diploma in Equine Studies, a Certificate of Horsemanship, and has worked in various segments of the horse industry for over 20 years.

After having her own horses stolen, Pedersen, undertook extensive research into the crime of horse theft, and has continued to investigate this aspect of crime, it's prevention, and detection, ever since. She's had articles on horse and livestock theft published throughout North America for almost 15-years (that's several years more than other present-day sources of published information on the crime), and has been told by two government sources that she probably knows more about horse and livestock theft than anyone else in the country.

She has consulted with the Ontario Provincial Police and helped them establish their livestock theft data base. And she has written Stolen Horses, true stories of horse thefts. Her next book, on horse theft prevention and detection, will be available at the end of 2004.
