Olivia spent her childhood reading every pony story written and doodling horseshoes on her school books, dreaming about the pony she would buy one day. Weekends were spent mucking out, scrubbing buckets and grooming, rewarded with a ride on a friend's pony. She has always loved writing and wanted to write the kind of pony story she adored as a child. Her own ponies and their funny antics provide inspiration for her stories every day. Olivia still has to pinch herself when she wakes up and sees them from her bedroom window, and is thrilled to be able to write about them thanks to Nosy Crow.
