She’s the writer who helped to make erotic novels as commonplace on bookshelves as the Oxford Dictionary, the sister of Joan and an inspiration to women everywhere. The world was so saddened to hear of Jackie Collins’ death from breast cancer aged 77.
Born in London in 1937, Jackie’s first novel, The World Is Full Of Married Men, became a bestseller in 1968. Romantic novellist Barbara Cartland called it ‘Nasty, filthy and disgusting.’ – but the public certainly disagreed! Jackie published 32 novels throughout her career, all of which made it onto The New York Times bestseller list.
Her untimely death came just two weeks before her 78th birthday, and messages of grief and condolences have come rushing in from friends and the public ever since. Jackie certainly touched a lot of people, and had a real knack for knowing how the female mind works. She truly was one of a kind, as these quotes prove…
Jackie Collins, you will be sorely missed.
