Kate Gordon-Smith

Wanaka author Kate Gordon-Smith spent ninety percent of her childhood reading books about ponies. The other ten percent she was galloping around the garden with her family’s pet Beagle.

Now she’s penning fantasy adventure and fun mystery stories about brave friends, ponies and unicorns, and much-loved family dogs.

Kate is inspired by the wonderful community and magnificent mountains of Central Otago where she lives with her husband, their red and white collie Kenzie and rescue dog Snow, a retired racehorse called Tony, and a fluffy, demanding cat named Bob.

When she isn’t working on new ideas for The Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore, she is writing more stories for middle grade readers (aged 8-12).
