Hi there readers! I really hope you enjoy my Pony Friends Forever series as much as I have enjoyed writing it. The first book in the series is ‘Pony Palace Camp’ and was inspired by an eventful day at Lessans’ Riding Stables in 2012. 2nd L 1

Barney was being particularly naughty that day, so I went home and wrote a story about him for my daughter. Then Biscuit and Kaz crept in to the story too, and before I knew it I had a three-character novel written. Then, just a few months later, I had written another book, ‘Pony Surprise,’ and then ‘Pony Party’ followed in September. The series has become extremely popular with primary schools all over Northern Ireland, with some using the books for Guided Reading. ‘Pony Surprise’ made the top ten bestsellers’ list at Easons. So, if you love popular stories, fun characters and pony books, then you’re going to love these :-)

A lovely little book – hopefully the first of many – about ponies and the children who ride them. It’s great fun, but it’s thoughtful and kind-hearted too. If you like horses, you’ll love this book – and if you don’t like horses, maybe you will once you’ve read it!
