Lord, who's also written books on the lives of David Niven, Dick Francis and James Herriot, examines the longevity of Collins' career and life (she's in her 70s). The author is a former literary editor of the Sunday Express.
The 400-page book, "Joan Collins: The Biography of an Icon," releases on November 1 from Orion Publishing. Orion calls the biography "affectionate," quoting Lord as saying, "Men like her because she is beautiful, sexy, sassy, funny, naughty and intelligent. Women admire her because she is stylish, elegant, strong, positive and independent, a feisty old feminist who is nevertheless extremely feminine and even in old age she is able to attract handsome young men."
