Harold and Me : My Life, Love and Hard Times with Harold Robbins
In 1982, after years of working in advertising in Oklahoma, Jann Stapp took a job as the personal assistant to the world's bestselling author, Harold Robbins. Like those he portrayed in his novels, Harold Robbins lived life hard, fast, and occasionally out-of-control. He was a larger-than-life figure, and he let those around him know it. Young Jann didn't know what she was walking into - but she loved every minute of it. Jann and Harold Robbins were married in 1992. "Harold and Me" is the chronicle of the last fifteen years of Harold Robbins' life. Harold was a natural storyteller and Jann absorbed his stories with awe and admiration. Just like his characters, his life was a rollercoaster ride of pride, drama, and intensity, and Jann tells his story - and theirs - with vividness and love.

"Really successful writers give their readers a world they know intimately, and Harold certainly knew his world. From his luxurious yachts in the south of France to his lavish jet-set parties, Harold was king. He was larger-than-life and a real charmer." - Jackie Collins, New York Times bestselling author of Drop Dead Beautiful"
