Welcome to the The Golden Adventures of a Dark Horse!  

My name is Stella, and I live in the wild north of New Zealand, somewhere between the sand dunes and the mountains.  

The Golden Adventures is a landing space for photographs and occasional thoughts.  Expect to find book reviews (Children's, Middle Grade, Young Adult and Adult Fiction), crafty projects, local travel, children's birthday parties, quirk and... stuff.  Yeah.  

Those are my kids ^
