Author(s): Soraya Nicholas
Poppy is thrilled that her best friend Sarah is finally coming to visit Starlight Stables--but it soon becomes clear that Sarah doesn't share Poppy's love of horses and riding. When a bushfire erupts nearby, Poppy finds herself fighting not only to save her friendship but also the stables.
As a horse-crazy girl, Soraya Nicholas dreamt of owning her own pony and riding every day. For years, pony books like The Saddle Club had to suffice, until the day she finally convinced her parents to buy her a horse. There were plenty of adventures on horseback throughout her childhood, and lots of stories scribbled in notebooks, which eventually became inspiration for Soraya's very own pony series. Soraya now lives with her husband and children on a small farm in her native New Zealand, surrounded by four-legged friends and still vividly recalling what it felt like to be 10 years old and head over heels in love with horses. She is also a successful romance and women's fiction author. www.sorayanicholas.com
