Pamela Cockerill

British author, possibly born in Glamorgan, Wales (this needs substantiating). She has written three children's books, two of which feature ponies and donkeys respectively. However she is probably better known for co-writing/ghost-writing autobiographies, most notably that of notorious celeb Heather Mills McCartney.
