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.

Reviews

Praise for Harold and Me

“Great book!! Fascinating reading about a colorful man. Harold was the king of pop fiction. About all of what he wrote, he lived! Jann was a remarkable, loving partner throughout their roller-coaster lives together.” —Barbara Eden, award-winning actress and star of I Dream of Jeannie on Harold and Me

“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 on Harold and Me
