There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and themansions of the power brokers - Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out. Jackie Collins has been called a 'raunchy moralist' by the late director Louis Malle and 'Hollywood's own Marcel Proust' by Vanity Fair magazine. With over 500 million copies of her books sold in more than 40 countries, and with some twenty-eight New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world's top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivaled insiders knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous! 'I write about real people in disguise,' she says. 'If anything, my characters are toned down - the truth is much more bizarre.' Jackie Collins started writing as a teenager, making up steamy stories her schoolmates paid to devour. Her first book, The World is Full of Married Men, became a sensational bestseller because of its open sexuality and the way it dealt honestly with the double standard. After that came The Stud, Sinners, The Love Killers, The World is Full of Divorced Women, The Bitch, Lovers And Gamblers, Chances, and then the international sensation, Hollywood Wives - a No. 1 New York Times bestseller, which was made into one of ABC's highest-rated miniseries starring Anthony Hopkins and Candice Bergen. The Stud, The World is Full of Married Men, and The Bitch were also filmed - this time for the big screen. And Jackie wrote an original movie, Yesterday's Hero, starring Ian McShane and Suzanne Somers. Readers couldn't wait to race through Lucky, her next book - a sequel to Chances- - and the story of Lucky Santangelo, an incredibly beautiful, strong woman, another NewYork Times number one. Oprah had one word for the book Lucky, and that was - 'Hot!' Next came the bad boys of Hollywood in the steamy Hollywood Husbands - a novel which kept everyone guessing the identities of the true-to-life Hollywood characters. Jackie then wrote Rock Star - the story of three rock superstars and their rise to the top, followed by the long-waited sequel to Chances and Lucky - Lady Boss - tracking the further adventures of the wild and powerful Lucky Santangelo as she takes control of a Hollywood studio. Both Lucky and Chances were written and adapted for NBC television by Jackie, who also executive produced the highly successful six-hour miniseries LuckyChances, starring Nicollete Sheridan and Sandra Bullock. In the nineties, she produced and wrote the four-hour miniseries, Lady Boss, which became another huge ratings success for NBC. Lady Boss starred Kim Delaney. Next came American Star, a love story, which the Los Angeles Times described as 'classic Collins.' Then the dangerously close to the truth Hollywood Kids - a story of power, sex, danger and ambition among the grown offspring of major celebrities. In 1996 Vendetta: Lucky's Revenge was published - and became an immediate NewYork Times bestseller. And in 1998, Jackie hosted her own daily television show for CBS, Jackie Collins Hollywood. A combination of fun, style and interviews, Jackie talked to everyone from George Clooney to Jennifer Lopez. After that she wrote L.A. Connections - a four-part serial novel published one per month - Power, Obsession, Murder and Revenge. In 1999 came Dangerous Kiss - the return of Lucky Santangelo in a bestselling novel about relationships, addiction, fear and lust. In the year 2000, Lethal Seduction became the first bestseller for Jackie Collins in the new millennium. This tale of erotic suspense and glamorous intrigue featured Madison Castelli, a character first introduced in the L.A. Connections series. Hollywood Wives: The New Generation became a blockbuster bestseller in 2001, followin
