Author of 103 romance novels for Mills & Boon, author Jean MacLeod died on April 20th at the age of 103--proving that love keeps you young at heart.
There's a lovely article about her in the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/culture-obituaries/books-obituaries/8478548/Jean-MacLeod.html
"Mills & Boon always had a champagne tent on Ladies' Day at Ascot for their authors," Jean Macleod remembered. "One year Barbara sauntered over and dismissively asked: 'Wearing the same outfit twice, Jean? Are things really that hard?' I didn't dignify it with a response – she was known for her sharp remarks."
Here's to one classy lady!
