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.

Her passion for 20th Century history led to the publication of her two best selling personal memoirs about post WW2 London: Bombsites and Lollipops, published by John Blake Publishing in 2011 and White Boots & Mini Skirts: A True Story of Life in the Swinging Sixties, published in February 2013, also by Blake Publishing.

Jacky's third historically related title, The Female Few: Spitfire Pilots of the ATA, was published by The History Press in 2012 followed by her unique history of Britain's WW2 female munitions workers, Bomb Girls: Britain's Secret Army, published in 2013 by John Blake Publishing.

Her latest book, Frances: The Tragic Bride, tells the unold true story of the life of Reggie Kray's first wife, Frances Shea, published by John Blake Publishing in September 2014. Based on interviews and documents that have never been made public before, the story provides an original and fresh perspective on life in the Kray Twins' inner circle -- and the troubled life of the innocent young woman at its centre.

I was looking forward to re-living memories of my teenage years in the sixties but sadly there were few if any in this book. There was the odd reference or two to events of that period and a few names were dropped in. I would not have known which period in recent history the book was set without these references and names. It could have been set at any period over the last fifty years. Sorry but it came across as just a girlie gossip. Very disappointing

Very disappointed with this book. The first book was a well told story of the times but this book was written to sell the book not to tell a story and Jacky came over as not a very nice girl. DISAPPOINTED !!!!!

Really has nothing going for it ... I'm glad my life has been more exciting than hers. Watching paint dry in the sixties.

This wasn't what I expected, but I could relate to some of it. She was a very determined, strong willed lady, and it makes very interesting reading, how times have changed, I think for the better with regard to some things.

This is not as interesting as I expected it to be. I found it a bit difficult to get into the story
