About the Author, Paula Boer

Paula Boer started her lifelong love of horses when she first rode a pony on a ranch in Canada, aged 7. On moving to England at age 9, she commenced weekly riding lessons and became hooked. Her horse infatuation led to Paula’s bedroom being filled with toy stables, posters of golden stallions, horse gear and, of course, horse books. Her books included non-fiction works as well as novels, most notably Elyne Mitchell’s The Silver Brumby series.

Paula’s own writing career started at school where she wrote a story from the horse’s perspective for her final English exam. Combining her love of horses with her passion for travel, she raced the native horses in Mongolia, climbed the heights of Colombia on horseback, and competed in Endurance rides around Australia. She claims the best way to experience a country is from the back of a horse.

From her own experiences of catching and breaking in brumbies, Paula decided to set the first brumbies novel in the Snowy Mountains of NSW. The Brumbies series was created and became an Amazon ‘Best Seller’ in 2012. The final in a series of five, Brumbies in the Mountains, was published in January 2015.
