Is Dizzy based on a true experience?

Meeta wrote to ask me….

“I absolutely love dizzy, it is a great book. i just wanted to know how you came up with the character dizzy – is this a true experience?”

Well Meeta, it’s great that you’re loving Dizzy! Dizzy is not based on a true experience, Meeta, although I had lost of traveller friends and have always wanted to set a story in that world. The name came from a girl I met at a traveller wedding, Dizzy was a nickname for Denise, but it stuck in my mind and I knew I’d use it in a story one day!

  7. I’ve read Scarlett, Driftwood, Indigo Blue, Dizzy, Gingersnaps, Lucky Star and Angel Cakes. My favourite was definitely Dizzy followed by Indigo Blue and then Lucky Star! I love the way you write and I love your books! And what’s the place that Dizzy’s Mum live called?

  10. I have read a few of your books but dizzy is by far my favorite! I was so sad when it ended though because now I do not know what to read! do get me wrong your other books are freat but you most certainly write a sequel to Dizzy!
