Valerie Ormond spent the majority of her adult life as a Naval Intelligence Officer. The daughter of two English majors, and an English major herself, she always had a great interest in books and writing. She was a mentor, counselor, and leader in the U.S. military for over twenty years, and now combines her life experiences, love of horses, and interest in writing in her second career. Her first novel, Believing In Horses (March 2011, J.B. Max Publishing), tells the story of a young girl saving unwanted horses. She lives with her husband Jaime Navarro, also a Navy veteran, in, Maryland, where they enjoy the company of their wonderful families, friends, horses, and dogs.
