     Maxwell Dickinson grew up at Travelers Rest Arabian Horse Farm near Nashville, Tennessee. Since her early years were spent before and during World War II, when gas rationing limited leaving the country home, she spent many years riding horses from breakfast till supper, training them for gaited horse shows in Tennessee, then later canvassing the back country of California’s wilderness areas after her family’s move to a ranch near Santa Barbara.
      After moving to California as a teenager, Maxi spent many years competing in horse shows, playing polo and winning the United States Sweepstakes in Competitive Endurance Racing. She played guitar at guest ranches, toured with her Country-Western band, has written many articles for magazines, and won “Excellence in Writing” awards at Santa Barbara Writer's Conference. Maxi has excelled at many horse-related professions: horse portrait painter and sculptor, country-western singer with her California Express band and entertainer for TV, radio and nightclubs. 
     Maxwell has taught writing as well as riding and now lives happily on a small ranch in Montecito, California, with her family, loyal dogs and a mini-horse, Marco.
