Jackie Collins admitted she didn't fear death in her final interview before passing away from breast cancer on Saturday (19.09.15).
Jackie Collins wasn't afraid of death.
The late author, who tragically died from breast cancer aged 77 on Saturday (19.09.15), revealed in her final interview - conducted just days before her death - that she didn't fear the end of her life due to her belief in Buddhism.
The practicing Buddhist told PEOPLE magazine: ''Death is peaceful and maybe you come back as something and maybe you don't.''
She added that she wanted her gravestone to read: ''She gave a great deal of people a great deal of pleasure.''
Jackie - the sister of legendary actress Joan Collins - kept her six-year cancer battle a secret from the public, admitting she didn't want ''sympathy''.
She explained: ''I didn't want to make it public and I didn't want people's sympathy. I don't live my life that way. I like to be in control and so I took control of the situation.''
The author continued working right up until her death and feels that she lived life to the fullest despite her cancer battle.
Jackie said: ''I did it my way, as Frank Sinatra would say. I've written five books since the diagnosis, I've lived my life, I've travelled all over the world, I have not turned down book tours and no one has ever known until now when I feel as though I should come out with it.''
Jackie is survived by her three daughters Tracy, 54, Tiffany, 48, and Rory, 46.
