Profile: Writer and Rider Tami Hoag

Thriller writer Tami Hoag leads a dual life that can turn the simplest telephone conversation into an Abbott and Costello routine, writes Jay MacDonald of Bankrate.com. This "writer" is also a "rider" who competes in international dressage at the Grand Prix level. And for her, the subject of shoes can either mean the iron ones she buys for her beloved mare, Coco Chanel, or the closet full of Stuart Weitzmans that the author has brought home from Rodeo Drive.

Originally a romance author, In the mid-1980s, Hoag left that stable to try her hand at thrillers and soon found green pastures -- hardcover, best-seller, money-green pastures, to be exact. Success in more than one genre of fiction is rare enough; success in such disparate disciplines as romance and hard-boiled crime is almost unheard of.

Bankrate caught up with Hoag in Wellington (FL) during the winter Grand Prix season to discuss writing, riding, horseshoes and Jimmy Choos. Read the entire interview on Bankrate.com here.
