Historical Fiction
Equine character leaps off the page in unique fusion of art and the written word as Gettysburg author Jessica James teams up with Virginia artist Kristen Queen.

Virginia equine artist Kristen Queen has teamed up with Pennsylvania author Jessica James to bring an equine character in a Civil War novel to life.

Queen’s piece of artwork entitled “Friesian Study” was chosen to depict “Justus,” a large-boned, black horse owned by the lead character in James’ book Shades of Gray: A Novel of the Civil War in Virginia.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have my artwork accompany Jessica’s novel Shades of Gray," Queen said. "It has been such a joy to be part of Jessica’s success. To be able to play a part in bringing 'Justus”'to life has truly been a rewarding experience.”
A lifelong horse lover, owner and equestrian enthusiast, Queen is rapidly gaining notoriety for her depiction of horses of many disciplines and breeds in pastel.
Shades of Gray is an epic love story that chronicles the clash of a Confederate cavalry commander with a Union spy as they defend their beliefs, their country, and their honor.
It has been receiving rave reviews from Civil War authors and historians, as well as lovers of romance and historical fiction since its release in January by Patriot Press.
Queen’s artwork can be viewed at Her storefront of Justus-related items is located at Author Jessica James’ site can be found at
