Delphine Ratcliff is another Crown Pony Library author. Delphine Ratcliff came from a creative horsy family: she was the daughter of John (Jack) Ivester Lloyd, and the grand-daughter of Tom Ivester Lloyd. Stanley Lloyd was her great uncle. Delphine herself didn’t start writing until her twins, the youngest of her four children, had left home. She wrote just the two books, as well as a short story I found in Pony Magazine Annual.
Delphine Ratcliff died at the age of 75 in 2005.
Finding the books
Both the books are easy to find.
Many thanks to Carol Hewson, Delphine’s daughter, for all the biographical information.
