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
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.
