More About the Author

Jacky Hyams is a Brighton based journalist and best selling non fiction author. She has been writing for a wide range of mass market newspapers and magazines in the UK and Australia for several years.

Jacky's passion for 20th Century history led to the publication of her best selling personal memoir about post WW2 London: Bombsites and Lollipops, published by John Blake Publishing in 2011. The memoir has sold over 60,000 copies.

The followup, White Boots & Mini Skirts: A True Story of Life in the Swinging Sixties, was published by Blake in February 2013, also to considerable acclaim.

Jacky's third historically related title, The Female Few: Spitfire Pilots of the ATA, was published by The History Press in 2012. The book has now been optioned by a leading Hollywood producer.

This was followed by her unique history of Britain's WW2 female munitions workers, Bomb Girls: Britain's Secret Army, published by John Blake Publishing.

Jacky's recent book, Frances Kray: The Tragic Bride, tells the unold true story of the life of Reggie Kray's first wife, Frances Shea, first published by John Blake Publishing in September 2014. In the updated paperback version, published in September 2015, Jacky reveals, through new interviews and documents that have never been made public before, even more insights into Frances' story, revealing a wholly original and fresh perspective on life in the Kray Twins' inner circle -- and the troubled life of the innocent young woman at its centre.

Jacky is also the co-author of a second book about the Kray Twins, One of The Family: 40 years with the Krays, published by Century in July 2015 and a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. Written in collaboration with hairdresser and Page 3 girl Maureen Flanagan, the book tells the story of Maureen's unique relationship with the Kray family over the years.

Have always liked and respected Jennifer Saunders.Loved her in French and Saunders, but the best is Ab Fab.......absolutely brilliant. When I read that she had breast cancer in early 2010 i couldn't believe it. Then in July 2010 i found out that i also had Breast Cancer. The way she battled the illness and her strength through it all, gave me the strength too. The book was a brilliant read and have found out alot more about her life and her path to fame.

Made the mistake of reading her book, My Life in Laughs immediately beforehand, and cant get through the first couple of pages of her autobiography as her humour, humility and personality is missing. I know it cannot be there in this work for she has not written it, but for me, that is a problem so I shall not continue reading it.

After reading jennifer saunders' autobiography it was interesting to read bits that jennifer had left out of her own story or had 'played down'. She is an amazing woman and should b proud of her achievements and 'Ab Fab' has and still is the best comedy ever for me.

Not as good as Dawn French's, most of it was just what she said in previous interviews and quotes. I still think Jennifer is very talented and a brilliant writer/comedienne. It didn't give an insight into the real Jennifer

Maybe it's me, but I didn't find this as entertaining as I hoped. That not to say others would feel the same. I love Jenniefer Saunders but not her Biography. Sorry Jen!
