In this list contemporary authors reflect on how Jackie has influenced their writing, and recommend authors within the Collins realm.

 

“Jackie's novels showed me that being a feminist does not mean dismissing the feminine - but celebrating the power of womanhood, and a big part of that is embracing our sexuality. Jackie's books liberated me, in every sense, and I believe she inspired millions of women to seek pleasure with confidence.” Daisy Buchanan, author of Insatiable

 

“I first read Jackie Collins when I was at university, taking a course called ‘Feminism or Smut?’ ..Jackie Collins, and other female blockbuster writers taught me that there was no shame in reading for pure pleasure…or in anything else that I wanted to do with my life.” Julie Cohen, award-winning author of Spirited

 

"On Jackie’s birthday, 4th of October, I always raise a glass to the skies to toast the woman whose words ‘Girls can do anything’ helped me achieve a life and career, that without her influence, I might only ever have dreamed of.” – Melanie Blake, author of Ruthless Women

 

“I had the big hair and even had the shoulder pads.  When I want to get away from the real world, I step into a Jackie Collins book and am transported to a fast paced, crazy world like walking through the back of the wardrobe and finding myself, not in Narnia but the hot and steamy world of Los Angeles.” Jo Thomas, author of Chasing the Italian Dream
