Best-selling Author Jackie Collins dies of breast cancer

 



 Chances are, you have read a Jackie Collins novel in your lifetime. Sadly, the woman behind the interesting books has passed away.
Best-selling author Jackie Collins died today age 77 from breast cancer. It has been revealed that Jackie kept her cancer diagnosis a secret from most people outside her immediate family until her last days. She gave a exclusive interview to People Magazine just days before her death and happily proclaimed –




“Looking back, I’m not sorry about anything I did, I did it my way, as Frank Sinatra would say. I’ve written five books since the diagnosis, I’ve lived my life, I’ve travelled all over the world, I have not turned down book tours and no one has ever known until now when I feel as though I should come out with it, Now I want to save other people’s lives.”

A statement released by her family reads;



It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of our beautiful, dynamic and one of a kind mother, Jackie Collins, who died of breast cancer today. She lived a wonderfully full life and was adored by her family, friends and the millions of readers who she has been entertaining for over four decades. She was a true inspiration, a trail blazer for women in fiction and a creative force. She will live on through her characters but we already miss her beyond words.
