Welcome to the first, and largest, website specialising in horse and pony fiction. It’s all here, from the brilliantly written to the frankly bad. The unassuming might think just a few authors wrote pony books, but the unassuming would be wrong. There are now over 1,100 authors featured on this site, and several thousand titles. The genre is still alive and kicking: I publish regular updates on what’s due out, whether ebook or physical book, as well as reviews and author interviews.

A couple of years ago I was asked to write a book on pony books, and it’s now out. Positively dripping with illustration is Heroines on Horseback - the Pony Book in Children’s Fiction.  Read how the pony book developed; its odd little cul-de-sacs; how it tackled war, and how it fought off accusations of elitism to survive today. You can order a signed copy, from me, or you can order directly from the publisher. The book’s had good reviews: here’s a selection, and I’m in blogger and author Liz Broomfield’s Top Books of 2013.

I’m experimenting with a facelift for the site - do let me know what you think!

If you do Facebook or Twitter, join me there for updates on life as lived by a  life long pony obsessive.

Moving on.... my sales website is now closed. Many thanks to everyone who bought books. If you’re wondering where to go for a pony book fix, here are some ideas.
