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!
