Renowed novelist Jackie Collins has died at age 77 after losing her long battle with breast cancer.
Collins, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer six and a half years ago was a trailblazer for women in fiction writing and a true superstar. She had a lovely, fascinating personality.
Collins lived a complete and full life and she was loved dearly by her fans.
While Collins was a very successful writer, her greatest joy came from her family including her sister, legendary actress Joan Collins, her brother Bill, her three daughters, Tracy, Tiffany, and Rory, and her grandchildern.
Her daughters released a statement saying…
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.
