In 2014 a vague idea to write a book about a porn star came to me. In 2015 the idea brewed and grew and when my idol, Jackie Collins, passed away, the idea flourished with a vengeance. I knew I wanted to get three stories about three young Australian men getting into the world of porn in the 70s, written, edited, and released on the first anniversaries of Miss Jackie’s death and birthday.
Jackie Collins is the biggest inspiration in my life when it comes to writing, if not the only inspiration. She had the passion, the brains, the ballsy rollicking attitude, and the kind of life that made me want to be her.
Without her, these books would not exist, for I would not have had the inspiration to follow in the same ‘write whatever you want’ league.
Without her, I will continue trying to write the kind of books she wrote. Real, ballsy, and bonkbustingly good.
Jackie, the Porn Star Brothers book series is dedicated to you as so many of my other books are. I thank you for the inspiration you have given me and hope you continue giving me, to go on and write more. I hope that you are well and having a good laugh wherever you are. I miss you and will continue doing so. Sometimes I think I feel you egging me on with my writing. Maybe that’s true, and maybe it’s just my rampant imagination; the same imagination that has given me the books I have written so far in my life. And sometimes, I really wished I could be you. You will forever be my idol and inspiration and I thank you.
RIP, Miss Jackie C.
And to the three Aussie Stefanovic brothers, Carlos, Pedro, and Tomas, without whom I would not have had names for my porn stars.
