Who is 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 just over a decade ago. She’s now an established author and, more importantly, curious about cats. Her latest book Simon Ships Out: How one brave, stray cat became a worldwide hero – the memoir of the world’s first celebrity cat! – has been published to great acclaim in the UK. She is a regular contributor to Huffington Post and Sabotage Times.

In between her writing she has recently 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; and regularly does charity work for Breast Cancer and Gay Pride. She currently spends her time between London and Gran Canaria.

Testimonials

I self-published my first book and was pleased with the results. But I still felt there were markets out there into which I could break but hadn’t yet done so. I’d met Victoria Twead on Facebook so approached her about putting my sequel with Ant Press.
I have been absolutely delighted with the arrangement, from the amount of time and effort which went into getting the manuscript just right, to the pleasure of seeing how well it is doing in those new markets.
Ant Press are totally professional but always very friendly and approachable. I could not recommend them highly enough.
