Years before her death, Neilson, who comes from an aristocratic family (her mother Elizabeth is a marquesa), opened up about her troubled past.
Here’s a look back at the tragedies she endured over the course of her life.
As a child, Neilson battled severe dyslexia. As an adult, Neilson discussed her childhood hardship in a series of children’s books she’d written, including The Me Me Me’s: Angry Me.
“Angry me is a character based on me in part as a child with severe dyslexia — but I think Angry Me evokes the frustrations and feelings for children when they can’t release such a powerful emotion as anger and it can be so many different things that a child can struggle with,” she told MyBaba. “Other characters have been based around friends, some family, some godchildren. You do look for inspiration amongst the people close to you.”
