Trudy is a photographer and author. She has written eight books, two non fiction titles on horses and dogs, and a series of six books (thus far) - the White Cloud Station series. Trudy Nicholson lives in Tasman Bay with her horse and dog.

Finding the books: all the books are in print. The first three are reasonably easy to find in the UK (though not necessarily secondhand). The last three titles don’t appear to be available in the UK yet.

Ripple and the Wild Horses of White Cloud Station

Penguin, Rosedale, 2009, 153 pp.

There’s a round up and auction each year at White Cloud Station, and Suzy and her two best
friends, Lucy and Alexa, are there. They’re desperate for horses of their own: but Suzy’s forbidden,
because she’s allergic to horses. But Suzy falls in love with a curly-coated horse and she wants
to buy it. As is the way with sales, things don’t go to plan: there’s another bidder, and the horse
is sold to them.

Summer with Horses
Penguin, London, 2009, 130 pp.

Suzy, Lucy and Alexa are spending their summer holidays at the beach, with their horses. But
when everything almost goes disastrously wrong, the girls find a new friend, and Suzy gets the
chance to visit White Cloud Station again.
