Che Golden worked in IT journalism in Northern Ireland before deciding to give it up to concentrate on writing fiction. She did a Masters in writing for children and young people at the University of Bath, and she is now writing the Meadow Vale Ponies series for OUP. The series is based on a wicked pony Che Golden took on for her daughter. Brie. Brie was an experience:
... although she was probably the worst pony ever, she made us laugh every day and she can never be replaced. Because she was also big hearted, loyal, intelligent and very, very brave. There will never be another Brie for us.
She shares her love of riding with her daughter, and they have two ponies: a Dartmoor and a Highland.
