Skydog Sanctuary is a non profit organization that provides a rescue home to at-risk mustang horses in America. They have three locations in Malibu, CA, Calabasas, CA, and Bend, OR. Skydog is a forever home for wild horses providing sanctuary for mustangs that have wound up in kill pens, at auction, or being neglected, starved, or abused. Many of these horses are recused hours away from being shipped to slaughter in Mexico or Canada to be killed for their meat and served on foreign dinner plates.

Tragically every year over 150,000 American horses are sent to be inhumanely slaughtered and many of those are mustangs. Skydog Sanctuary’s biggest, most important mission is to shine a spotlight on the issues facing our wild horses while continuing to rescue as many as possible. By spreading awareness of the situation we can show how special, valuable, and unique these wild horse are and create pressure to find alternative solutions that don’t require unnecessary killing, or captivity, for these beautiful animals.

Filmmaker and Author Romane Simon Unleashes his Creativity in “Red to Black”

Noted filmmaker Romane Simon is at it again with his debut novel, “Red to Black,” (The Power of Love). As if it wasn’t enough to create the Lucky Strike Film Festival and write, direct and produce countless award-winning films, this book is hitting the presses in a big way!

Book Cover

“I wanted to write something different and unique, which became this vampire love story. Vampires can be similar to human beings in so many ways in that they sacrifice a lot for blood including their own blood for love,” said author and noted filmmaker Romane Simon of his chilling book “Red to Black.”

Filmmaker and author Romane Simon

This book is about an old family of vampires, Xavier Gains, Daniella Gains and Barry Styles. The story revolves around these intriguing characters and the humans they are attracted to while living in Los Angeles. Xavier falls in love with the beautiful Marisa Childs and kidnaps her away from her husband, Douglas Childs, and brainwashing her to join the fold. Through out all of this, Marisa would not allow Xavier to kill Douglas, as he is doing his best to bring his wife back from the clutches of this vampire fold. This story explores the depth of this magical world and how with the power of love, one will do anything for the one they love. Even shedding their own blood in the darkness for the vitality of eternal love and life.

There are powerful characters and a wonderfully compelling storyline.  It was scary without being too gory, which is a challenge in this kind of genre. I hope Romane turns this book into a film or at least a series of young adult (YA) literature books.

“Red to Black” can be purchased at :
