Two talented people have died this week. We’ve lost Jackie Collins and Yoram Gross.

Collins wrote romance so I’ll never read them but I’ll pay tribute to her despite that. She was a prolific author and her works were read by many, with eight of her 32 novels being adapted for the screen. She died of cancer having kept it secret from so many people. She will be mourned.

Yoram Gross took Dorothy Wall’s books about a koala called Blinky Bill and adapted them to TV.  They were good adaptations and gave much joy to so many children.

Vale to both Collins and Gross, much sympathy and good wishes to their families.
