Like her heroines who bed-hopped their way to fame and fortune, Collins herself was linked to high-profile celebrities like Marlon Brando, whom she dated when she was only 15, Warren Beatty, and many others who likely provided source material for her books.

Throughout her long career, Collins earned her share of critics who admonished her work - calling it trashy, immoral and depraved - yet the millions of readers she kept up at night provided concrete proof that she remained one of the literary world's most successful novelists.
