• Biography

    Anne Louise MacDonald was born with a passion for horses and a vivid imagination. She has worked with animals all her life and currently works part-time caring for critters from fish to rats. The rest of her time is spent teaching natural horse and hoof care, enjoying her two horses and writing. Her first YA novel, The Ghost Horse of Meadow Green, became an international best seller and is printed in five languages. Seeing Red is a companion book, second in her 'Hug a Horse Farm' series, which guarantees horses, kids with real-life problems and a bit of the paranormal. At the moment Anne Louise is working on a new novel and two picture books.

    She has also presented writing workshops for children and adults, and is available for writing festivals and conference presentations.

    Excepts from Anne Louise's books are available on her website.
