Where are you now and what can you see?

Sitting in my writing study gazing out at the Hollywood Hills, a profusion of palm trees and my gorgeous azure swimming pool.

What are you currently reading?

 “Disclaimer” by Renée Knight.  A sensational psychological thriller.

Choose a favourite author and say why you admire her/him

 Mario Puzzo. "The Godfather” is a fast and furious trip filled with magnificent and damaged characters.  Unputdownable.

Describe the room where you usually write

My study - filled with books, CD’s, computers, bronzes of cheetahs and leopards and a thousand felt-tip pens! 

Which fictional character most resembles you?

 I would love to be Lucky Santangelo in another life.

Who is your hero/heroine from outside literature?

 Angelina Jolie.  A woman who had done it all with style and grace.  I am a great admirer.

Jackie Collins’s new book, 'The Santangelos' is published by Simon & Schuster
