Delphine Ratcliff

British author. Only wrote these two pony books as far as I am aware. One is a pony point of view tale, the other a traditional pony story. Both books were published as part of the popular Crown Pony Library and are fairly undemanding comfort-type reads.

If anyone has any other information about the author I would love to hear from you.

Clear Round for Katy is the easier of the two to find as it was reprinted in paperback. Neither books however are particularly rare or expensive, although they are harder to find outside the UK.
