Walls lives in rural Virginia with her husband, the writer John Taylor.

Reviews

"Lily Casey Smith is one astonishing woman...a half-broke horse herself who's clearly passed on her best traits to her granddaughter. Told in a natural, offhand voice that is utterly enthralling, this is essential reading for anyone who loves good fiction." -- Library Journal
"Walls [is] ... a pretty doggone good storyteller." -- Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Half Broke Horses [is] the tale of yet another free-spirited wisecracking relative, her maternal grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. Think a rifle-toting, horse-breaking Annie Oakley in a biplane." -- Craig Wilson, USA Today
