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 over a decade ago. She’s now an established author and, more importantly, curious about cats and dogs. The first book in her Animal Heroes series,  Simon Ships Out: How one brave, stray cat became a worldwide hero – the memoir of the world’s first celebrity cat! – was published to great acclaim in versions for adults and children and is currently being translated into several languages. It has recently been followed by Smoky: How a Tiny Yorkshire Terrier Became a World War II American Army Hero, Therapy Dog and Hollywood Star, the memoir of a truly unique little dog.
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, Gran Canaria and Asia.

Testimonials

“In one form or another I have been writing my entire adult life. I have worked with many different traditional publishers, newspapers and literary agents around the world. I truly wish I would have found Ant Press sooner. My experience working with this company has been nothing short of amazing. Not only are they the very best in the business – but what sets them apart from the lot is that they truly care. They care not only about your writing and your success – but they also care about you as a person. They are not happy with the status quo and they go above and beyond to ensure all of their clients are 100% satisfied. They are responsive, thorough, meticulous and detailed. They really made this experience as stress-free as possible.

I highly recommend Ant Press, Victoria Twead and Jacky Donovan. Had I found Ant Press sooner I would have eliminated a lot of pain from my career as a writer and author.”
