Jacky Donovan might not have nine lives, but she does have a few. Bored with being a high-powered businesswoman and Stepford housewife, Jacky turned her back on her sensible life to become a professional dominatrix before moving abroad to Gran Canaria then Egypt. She's now the author of several bestselling memoirs and has helped over 30 authors to publish their books.

In between her writing and publishing work, she has trekked to see Mount Everest, tandem jumped from a tiny plane, been on Spanish TV due to her crazy long fingernails, run a lesbian dining club, escaped from a yoga holiday in a dinghy, done charity work for Breast Cancer and Gay Pride, travelled to the North Pole on a nuclear-powered icebreaker. She currently spends her time (when COVID permits) backpacking the world.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

"Action packed read, rich in detail, harrowing in places, heart-warming in others, and with a beautiful ending." -- Sheila Jeffries, author of bestseller 'Solomon's Tale'.

"An extraordinary reimagining." - Cat World Magazine.

"A real pleasure for a cat lover." -- Celia Haddon, author of bestseller 'Tilly, the ugliest cat' and numerous animal books.

"The sweet captivating bond between a cat, a dog, and men meets adventure, suspense, and history--all told from the perspective of a cat. Brilliant. Jacky Donovan brings WWII history alive for animal lovers and history buffs. Jacky Donovan tells a tale like no other." -- Cinda Adams Brooks, author of "Heartprints of Africa"

"Well-paced, filled with information, humour and lots of drama. A definite page turner that will appeal to a wide age range of readers interested in animal adventure books, with a bit of a twist. One thing's for sure though, if you read this book - you'll need some tissues handy." -- Beth Haslam, author of "Fat Dogs and French Estates" series

"A truly wonderful book for all ages and another feather in the colorful hat of Jacky Donovan. Highly recommended." -- Grady Harp, Amazon Vine Voice / Top 100 reviewer.

"A true celebrity cat - a stray who helped save the crew of a warship and whose story captured the hearts of a nation." -- Sunday People.

"Delightful new novel." -- Sunday Express.

"His quirky narrative should entertain and delight anyone who loves cats." -- Portsmouth Local.

"Such a sweet tale." -- Newcastle Chronicle.

"Wonderful to see Jacky's book bringing the story to life." -- Local London.
