About Monica Dickens

Monica Dickens was a great granddaughter of Charles Dickens and was one of the best-selling woman's novelists of her generation. She was expelled from St Paul's Girls' School after throwing her school uniform over Hammersmith Bridge. During the war she worked as a nurse and in a Spitfire factory, and began writing novels. She loved riding and kept horses, and so in the 1970s began writing about them for children. Her Follyfoot books were made into one of the most successful TV series for children of the 1970s and remain a favourite of horse-lovers everywhere.
