Tamara L. Williams

Canadian author and high school teacher. She has written two pony stories which are part of the Lorimer Sports Stories series, books written about various sports by various authors and aimed at teens - some of the others in the series feature other equine sports by different authors (see link for more information). Both Ms. William's pony books are set in the eventing world and are linked, although can be read separately. Both the books take a realistic no frills look at the world of young competitive riding, including the downside. As well as these two horse novels, the author has also written a number of other children's books, including a few more in the aforementioned Lorimer Sports series (although no other horse ones).

When not writing or teaching, Ms. Williams enjoys riding herself, especially cross country.
