I have created this archive for people interested in learning about how my book writing began. All of my books are copyrighted and are protected against infringement.
My First Book
|**This is my very first book titled "World Of My Little Ponies." It was copyrighted & hand published by me in 1996 when I was 18. It is plastic spiral bond with black canvas back, and a clear front over the color cover. It contains descriptions of the US ponies, places, clothes, etc. It also contains cleaning tips, list of terms, and my first pony poem. |
**It was created shortly after I got on the Internet. I helped ID ponies on the AOL pony board. Soon I started getting lists of 200+ ponies from people asking me to identify them. Thus my first book was created. It was available only through me.
My Second Book
|**This is my second book titled "The World Of My Little Ponies 2nd Edition." It was copyrighted and hand published by me in 1997 when I was 19. It too is plastic spiral bond with a clear front and back sheet over the two color covers. It contains updated information on US ponies, places, etc., and has 14 color pages full of ponies. It also contains cleaning tips, list of terms, baby or adult/type determining, MIP values for some, my second pony poem, prices, and knock offs. What is neat about this one is I also arranged them by Earthling, Pegasus, and Unicorn in another section. Lastly is a pony index of names!! It was available only through me.|
**I loved from the start being able to help others with my knowledge. This and my love for ponies is what prompted me to create this second edition, and go on to print!
|**Yes, this is really my third book, but first one published by a publisher. It is titled: "The World Of My Little Pony, An Unauthorized Guide To Pony Collectibles." It is published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd., and illustrated by Ann Stroth.|
**I was 20 - 21 when I wrote it. With the help of my Step-Dad & Schiffer I was able to bring everyone a wonderful, picture filled, informational book at an affordable price!!
**It is all about US ponies, items, places, clothes, etc. It has over 300 color photos and is 128 pages long. It includes sections to help you determine whether your pony is a baby or and Adult, on determining your pony's type, and even a list of pony terms!! There is also a very cool "Came With" section picturing mint in package ponies. Lastly there is an ever so helpful index of pony names!!
|**I have updated/replaced 21 pictures including a brand new cover! I also added porcelain ponies in the front portion, updated a few prices, and information on the Princess Ponies, Wedding Couple, L'il Litters, Home Sweet Home, and Megan's Place, and a few other items. Unfortunately this all time would allow. Pony clothes, items, and the other pony places were not updated, sorry. The pony section is complete for the most part now with pictures though!|
**Important Note! I was contacted by Schiffer to update my original version in August '07. I was not allowed to add any pages, and I could only add pictures in empty spaces (of which there were none). I was also given 2 weeks to make any updates and return them. I was allowed to replace existing pictures and update text only. This book is not expanded, only updated! The publisher added the word "Expanded" to the title, and would not remove it regardless of my requests. Furthermore, when Schiffer printed my revised book the print quality is poorer compared to my first edition. The new pictures are nice and bright, but the un-revised photos lack clarity and some even lack color! It seems to be worse in the Babies. I expressed major concern over this with Schiffer, and got nowhere! This is a good book for the information, and to see the pony, but the print quality isn't as good as the first edition, so I don't want anyone to be misled! I hope you enjoy it, as I am a little over critical being a pony collector!
|**Yup, my fourth (or 2nd published) is here! It is titled "My Little Pony, Around The World." And it covers of course, ponies from all over the world! It is published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd., illustrated by Ann Stroth, & my brother did the cover!|
**My book mainly covers ponies made outside the US! Included are: Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Holland, UK, and more!! It has around 300 color photos, and it is 144 pages long. It includes sections to help you determine whether your pony is a baby or and adult, on determining your pony's type, a list of pony terms!! Included is an article on moving and displaying your ponies, and a misspelled pony names portion. There are updated prices for my former book, and an updated US section of ponies, etc., not pictured in my last book! The "Came With" section is back with all new US mint in package ponies shown! Lastly there is an ever so helpful index of pony names, places, & sets!!

Released: December 2012
It is all about the hard to find non mass-produced My Little Ponies of the 80s era. It is 8 1/4 x 11 and 232 pages with over 500 color pony pictures, and a vast amount of information. It covers countries Argentina, Australia/Denmark, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, India, Italy, Macau, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Spain, and UK/Happy Tail mixes (parts ponies). Each pony is pictured individually by country with information like year of release and items if known. Each country also has detailed facts and information included. I have also added a color guide and a rarity scale. The rarity scale is able to rate/price ponies more accurately based on the country, value, demand, and rarity. I hope you enjoy a whole different world of My Little PonyŽ.
