Jacky Donovan

Jacky Donovan might not have nine lives, but she does have a few. Bored with being a 'Stepford' housewife in Southampton, Jacky packed her bags and headed to London followed by Gran Canaria then Egypt over a decade ago. She's now an established memoir author and, more importantly, curious about heroic pets. Her latest books, "Simon Ships Out" and "Smoky" — the memoirs of the world's first celebrity cat and dog respectively — are Amazon No.1 bestsellers, whilst her erotic and humorous personal memoir, "Smart as a Whip", is a captivating bestseller for adults. In between her writing, she has trekked to see Mount Everest, tandem jumped from a tiny plane, been on Canarian TV due to her crazy long fingernails, run a lesbian dining club, escaped from a yoga holiday in a dinghy, done charity work for Breast Cancer and Gay Pride, travelled to the North Pole on a nuclear-powered icebreaker, and helped over 30 authors to publish their books. She currently spends her time between backpacking the world and her home in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
