“Smoky: How a Tiny Yorkshire Terrier Became a World War II American Army Hero, Therapy Dog and Hollywood Star” by Jacky Donovan

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 the short time it has taken Victoria Twead, on behalf of Ant Press, to make my book available to the public, I have got to know her as a patient friend. She has dealt with every enquiry and problem with impressive efficiency and professionalism accompanied by a personal touch that made me feel valued as a writer. I have felt totally involved in the whole process, which has been very reassuring for this novice! I look forward to working with Victoria again soon, knowing that I will be in safe hands.

And I mean every word!
