morebooksJacky’s first non fiction memoir, Bombsites & Lollipops, detailing her childhood in London’s post War East End, won her many fans all over the world.

Frances, The Tragic Bride, the story of an innocent young woman who became enmeshed in the Kray Twins web of criminality and deceit in the Sixties, has also been widely acclaimed in revealing the tragedy of Frances’ short life — and how her memory continued to haunt the Krays and her own family down the years.

At present, Jacky is working on two new titles for 2017, both of which focus on the historical genres for which she is now renowned, WW2 and crime.
