In the 1970’s Molly Parkin started writing her hugely popular series of ten bestselling comic erotic novels, starting with ‘Love All’. Not only flamboyant and funny, she was an award winning fashion editor for Nova, Harpers & Queen and The Sunday Times.

The outrageous Molly Parkin personified 60’s London. She was the Soho drinking companion of Francis Bacon and lover to James Robertson justice, John Mortimer, George Melly, Bo Didley and a host of others

"The twinkly eyed Parkin says she’s always found the raunchy side of life very funny. ‘I couldn’t wait to get up in the morning to start writing; I would laugh out loud as I wrote. Everything was autobiographical. I had a lot to draw on: I’d had most of Real Madrid in my bed and I’d fucked an entire rugby team on a trip to Scotland. I even used to sleep in older men’s beds when I was still a virgin. I always managed to pop an 80-year-old in [a novel] if I could. They may not be good at getting erections but they are very good at cunnilingus; you know, gums on soft tissue.”
