Author(s): Soraya Nicholas
When Poppy bids on a wild, beautiful feral horse (a "brumby") at an auction, she doesn't think about the consequences. Everyone believes she's crazy trying to take on a wild horse--although Poppy is sure she can help him. But Poppy had no idea how difficult a wild brumby can be, and she's heartbroken that he just won't let her come near him. Will her brumby learn to love her, or has she taken on more than she can handle?
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.
