STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Colorado’s first short story dispenser has a new author in its mix, and the journey that her piece took to get there is a story in itself. When Kailani Clark Lay heard about Bud Werner Memorial Library’s short fiction contest last summer, she got right to work. Kailani, who’s currently in sixth grade at Steamboat Springs Middle School, often reads books about horses and is a horseback rider herself. Last summer, she trained a horse named Pendleton, and the two formed a close connection. Her short story begins with a girl who adopts a mustang.
