At a time when girls weren't encouraged to be bold and daring, Australian circus rider May Wirth lived by her own rules.

Instead of just looking pretty on a fancy circus pony, she longed to do thrilling stunts that would amaze crowds with her courage and skill... So she did.

Here is the story of a girl from humble beginnings who defied expectations and became the world's bareback riding queen.

Originally from Melbourne, Simi is now a Northern Rivers NSW based author and circus performer. Simi has always been drawn to adventure, and it was during her many travels that she discovered the flying trapeze. This ignited a love of all things circus, and she spent the next twenty years performing as a trapeze artist with traditional circuses around Australia and with contemporary circuses around the world. Simi hopes that by reading about amazing women, children will see the incredible things girls are capable of and be motivated to follow their dreams. So She Did is her first picture book. American-born Renee Treml moved to Australia in 2007, where she was immediately captivated by the unique wildlife in this country. Throughout her teens, she was an avid horseback rider (nothing near as daring as May) and spent inordinate amounts of time at 'the ranch' riding, grooming and enjoying the company of horses. These days Renee can be found working in her Surf Coast studio or walking in the bush and on the beach with her family. In addition to books, Renee's illustrations are featured on a range of stationery, ceramics and homewares.
