About the Author

Stacy Gregg

The author of seventeen books, Stacy Gregg has reinvigorated the pony genre with her two popular series Pony Club Secrets and Pony Club Rivals.

Stacy Gregg understands the desperation of wannabe horsey girls who want a pony of their own. She spent many frustrating horse-less years training her bewildered dog to showjump in the back yard until her parents gave in and she got her first pony – a sway-backed brown mare named Bonnie. She currently rides a rather uppity, difficult chestnut gelding called Jasper and dreams of owning a posh Andalusian stallion.

A former high-profile fashion editor (she was a judge on the New Zealand version of TV’s Next Top Model and editor-at-large of Fashion Quarterly Magazine), Gregg has no regrets about trading her Christian Louboutins for life in gumboots. She lives in Auckland with her partner Michael, their nine-year-old daughter and assorted animals.
