Jackie Collins dies aged 77

On September 21, 2015

JackieCollinsBestselling novelist Jackie Collin has died aged 77.

Her family made the sad statement to People Magazine.

'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 4 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.'

Collins was born in Hampstead, London in 1937. She started out acting in British B movies but later made a switch from the screen to becoming a novelist. Her first novel The World Is Full of Married Men, became a best-seller in 1968. Her final novel The Santangelos was released in June.

Collins wrote 32 novels, all of which appeared in the New York Times bestseller list and sold 500 million copies worldwide.
