Victoria Eveleigh lives and farms on Exmoor, and her books are inspired by her own animals. She and her husband Chris keep Exmoor Horn Sheep, North Devon cattle, and of course Exmoor ponies. Chris illustrates her books, and they published the original Katy series and Midnight on Lundy themselves.
Victoria Eveleigh is one of the most traditional pony authors writing today. Her books are completely devoid of marketing department glitz or fantasy; what you get is a good, straightforward story, well-observed and with masses of accurate pony content.
