The Wilder List

Hi there! This is Stefani. I'm glad you stopped by. I'm building a new thing right now. It's a mailing list, which is old news, I know. But this one is different! It's going to be fun.

So ... what's the point of this list?

I'll be sending out one message a month. I'm going to talk a little bit about what I'm writing, but I'm also going to include profiles of the real horses that inspire me, share tales of how my true stories turn into my fiction, and broadcast the occasional random photo of my horses and my dog. I'm also going to be asking for your thoughts and feedback on my current projects.

Plus, you'll receive exclusive content

Not everything makes it into my novels. For instance, there's a piece of Erin and Clint's love story that didn't fit in either A Man Who Rides or A Man Who Starts. That story is now available just for people on my mailing list.

Want in? Sign up below.

When you join, you will be added to the Wilder List! Yay! You'll immediately receive the Tipped Z short story Thrown. After that, I'll send you an email roughly once a month. If you get tired of hearing from me, don't worry. Every email gives you the option to easily unsubscribe.

About Stefani

Stefani Wilder - Author

Stefani was born in Arizona. She spent her childhood exploring the wild foothills of the Sonoran Desert on horseback, often getting into scrapes on her sturdy mare, Blue. Always an avid reader, in 2012 she read one book too many that promised to be about horses but contained no horsemanship whatsoever. Her first novel aimed at creating a different kind of horse story, A Man Who Rides, came out in 2013 and became a #1 Amazon bestseller. Since then, her Tipped Z series has expanded to four titles. All these books are set on a fictional working ranch called the Tipped Z. Book number five, Vaquera's Bronc, is slated for publication in 2020.

Stefani lives in Iowa City with her husband, her Australian Shepherd, and their small herd of horses.
