During the war she worked as a nurse and in a Spitfire factory, and began writing novels. Monica Dickens felt the challenge to write for children and began in the 1970s. 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. Monica Dickens was born in 1915 and died in 1985.
