Jennifer Austin

American author of a children's mystery series featuring a girl detective. One of the books is a horsy mystery set amongst the excitement of the Kentucky Derby. I am not sure if there is any horse content in any of the others. At the time of writing I don't have any more information about the author. If you know anything else I would love to hear from you.
