On January 19th, 2012 Susan Violante and Victor R. Volkman spoke with
award-winning children's author, marketing expert, and entrepreneur

book, Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse, went on to win a coveted
"Children's Choices" award, co-sponsored by The International Reading

up by an international toy company and packaged with a toy horse made
to resemble Blackjack, the star of the series. Blackjack continues to
sell well and to date has sold over 30,000 copies. Ellen shared her
