“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

It has been a joy to work with Ant Press during the publication of my first book. Victoria has provided me with unlimited support through the whole process, always on hand to answer questions and guiding me through the more technical issues with admirable patience.
My book became a bestseller within two days of publishing. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to have discovered such a friendly and professional publisher. Quite simply I could not recommend Ant Press highly enough and sincerely hope that I will have the pleasure of working with them again in the future.
