Jackie Collins Has Passed Away




One of the queens of the romance novel, Jackie Collins, has passed away after secretly battling breast cancer.


The best-selling author, who was also the sister of movie siren Joan Collins, had kept her battle with breast cancer a secret for nearly seven years from everyone except her three daughters.




Collins, who had many of her books turned into hit movies or television series, was beloved by readers worldwide, with her penchant for steaming up the lives of housewives everywhere. The author of 32 novels sold over half a billion copies of her tomes, making her one of the most successful authors of modern times. Even her sister Joan appeared in movies adapted for the screen from her bestsellers.


A quote from the author summed up her life perfectly…


“I’ve lived my life, I’ve traveled all over the world, I have not turned down book tours. Looking back, I’m not sorry about anything I did.”




What a dame.


Our condolences to the entire Collins family.
