Amanda Wills is the UK-based author of the Riverdale Pony Stories, which follow the adventures of pony-mad Poppy McKeever and her beloved Connemara, Cloud.
She is also the author of Flick Henderson and the Deadly Game, a fast-paced mystery about a super-cool new heroine who has her sights set on becoming an investigative journalist.
A former police press officer and journalist herself, Amanda is now a full-time author, because dreaming up stories about ponies is much more fun than writing news articles and press releases.
Her books are inspired by her own pony-mad childhood, growing up in the beautiful Kent countryside.
When she’s not writing, she can usually be found riding, walking or cycling along the leafy lanes and bridleways near her home.

This eighth book in the Riverdale Pony Stories series is packed with peril, mystery and high-octane action as pony-mad Poppy McKeever goes into detective mode to track down the dog that attacked the sheep on her friend’s farm, while also preparing for a big riding competition. While the writing is pacey and has an urgency to it, at times the somewhat dense descriptions could benefit from a little trimming. But, overall, this gripping, entertaining adventure rings with authentic dialogue, strong evocations of the countryside and Poppy’s indomitable spirit.
