English Heritage might argue that Monica Dickens spent thirty years in the USA but, heaven knows, there are many blue plaques on houses where eminent men stayed only a year or two (eg Lenin in 1908). In fact, Monica Dickens was a true Londoner and set parts of Mariana and The Winds of Heaven in London. She was also a prolific, immensely popular author of both non-fiction and fiction, including the Follyfoot series. How could she not deserve a plaque? Nominations can be submitted here.
