Monica Dickens

Monica Dickens

Author

Monica was born in London in 1915, the great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens. While her father and grandfather pursued the legal profession which was Charles Dickens first career, his great-granddaughter followed in his literary steps. Her light and witty novels became hugely popular in their time for being ‘funny, poignant and perfect period pieces’ (The Sunday Telegraph). Monica Dickens will be remembered by many horse-loving children as the creator of Follyfoot, a popular ITV series in the early 70s which formed the base for a subsequent children’s books series.
