Kate Lattey lives in Waikanae, New Zealand and started riding at the age of 10. She was lucky enough to get her first pony two years later, and went on to compete regularly as a teenager before heading to university.

In the years since, Kate has never been far from horses, and has worked in various jobs including as a livery yard groom in England, a trekking guide in Ireland, running a riding school in New Zealand, and spending five wonderful summers in the USA as a camp counsellor at Road's End Farm, NH. During her time there Kate wrote several short stories about the farm's horses, which were a huge hit with the campers.

Kate currently coaches at her local Pony Club, judges at shows in the local area, and enjoys training her horse JJ for show hunter (hunter jumper) competitions.

Her published books include "Dare to Dream" and its sequel "Dream On", as well as the first (and soon to be second) installments in the four-part "Clearwater Bay" series. All of her books are set in New Zealand with a focus on show jumping, and the unique equestrian lifestyle enjoyed by Kiwis.

Kate has been reading and writing pony stories ever since she can remember, and loves being able to share them with readers from all over the world.
