D. A. Young

British author. Full name Derek Anthony Young. As far as I know only wrote one pony book, a traditional story set in Kent. Unusually for pony books, this is illustrated with lovely full colour plates rather than the usual black and white illustrations.

I don't have any more information about the author so if you know anything at all about him I would love to hear from you.
