Today on my blog I have a guest post from Hollie, the author of todays spotlight, Sweetbriars



The Blurb! Sweetbriars Book 1 EBOOK COVER[2663]

The first book in the Sweetbriars Equestrian series, Leaving The City is receiving great reviews from readers.
Great for preteens, younger teenagers and adults that love coming of age stories and animals.

A Tale of Sweetbriars.
Welcome to the yard! Come and meet the girls… Cate, Tabby and Violet and their beautiful horses.
Cate is uprooted from life as she has known it. Along with her family and her gorgeous palomino show horse Odette, she moves to a charming farm deep in the English countryside.
Cate is torn. Upon moving to horse heaven, she had to leave behind her best friend Beth and her beloved horse-riding instructor Bridget. On the other hand, she has fallen in love with Sweetbriars, the farm her family has bought to make their dreams come true.
Setting up an equestrian centre at Sweetbriars is fun to Cate, but settling into a new school and having a stern Pony Club riding instructor that teaches dressage is less so. At school, Cate makes friends with Violet, who is confident and wacky, and through Pony Club she gets to know Tabby, who is sweet and popular, but hides a family secret. When the eccentric neighbour Sophia becomes a regular ‘drop in’ to the farm, Cate begins to learn about acceptance and what friendships really mean. The girls’ lives will be intertwined in ways they could never have imagined thanks to their shared passion for horses and Cate’s determination to make Sweetbriars a success.

Will Cate ever settle into living in the countryside?

Hollie is an Australian author who lives in Barcelona, Spain with her partner, baby boy, and Oldenburg mare, Frieda. After having a professional career, including creating the equestrian online shop Equiporium (since sold), working for many large multinational companies, and having a baby, Hollie reconnected with her passion of writing and finished the manuscript she wrote many years ago.

Hollie has been riding since she was a little girl, enjoying activities such as Pony Club, showjumping, eventing, and trail-riding in the great Australian bush. Hollie lived in England for almost ten years where she had two horses and trained them for dressage.

The Sweetbriars series is inspired by all the special moments Hollie spent with horses… good, funny, and challenging moments!

In creating the new Sweetbriars series, Hollie hopes that readers will not only find the books fun to read, but they will also inspire readers to learn more about horses.

Hollie’s post on why she chose Devon as the setting for Sweetbriars.Sweetbriars Book1_3D COVER_with background[2664]

I chose the location of Devon, in the English countryside for Sweetbriars after spending time there at a horse stud – actually where I ended up buying a foal from!

Devon is a wonderful place, not far from the coast, with rolling unspoilt countryside spilling over with fluffy sheep, cows and sleek horses and cosy stone cottages. With vivid changing landscapes throughout the year depending on the time of season.

It’s the kind of place that truly depicts the beauty of the English countryside. Not only that, you know you are miles from London when you walk into a pub or a shop, by the relaxed atmosphere and welcoming locals, not in a rush and happy to chat about the weather… or anything really!

It’s the perfect place for a child to grow up in, with nature and animals everywhere. Also friendly locals that know each other and help each other out.
