Jenny Boyd, Patti's sister, inspiration to Donovan, married to Mick Fleetwood (twice) is publishing a memoir, Jennifer Juniper: A Journey Beyond the Muse, on 26 March by Urbane Publications.

Jenny Boyd's extraordinary life is the stuff of movies and novels, a story of incredible people and places experienced at a pivotal time in the 20th century.

As an up-and-coming young model, Jenny found herself at the heart of Carnaby Street in London, immersed in the fashion and pop culture of the Swinging 60s. With boyfriend Mick Fleetwood, sister Pattie, George Harrison and the rest of the Beatles, she lived the London scene. But as a natural Flower Child, Jenny soon became part of the counter-culture in San Francisco during the Flower Power era, witnessing the Summer of Love; she was the inspiration for Donovan's famous song, Jennifer Juniper, and her photograph was featured inside the box set of his eponymous album A Gift from a Flower to a Garden.

After working in The Beatles shop, Apple, the first of its kind, Jenny attended Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in India to study meditation with her sister and the Beatles, witnessing their creativity and the genesis of songs that would later appear on the White Album .

Despite being attuned to the spiritual bloom and innocence of the 60s, Jenny also experienced first-hand the turmoil and decadence of the 70s and 80s. Her two marriages to Mick Fleetwood, founder member of Fleetwood Mac, brought her to the forefront of the world of rock and roll - and its fame, money, drugs and heartache. Struggling in the darkness to find and develop her own voice and identity, Jenny went to college, achieving a Masters in Counseling Psychology and a PhD in Humanities - her dissertation on musicians and creativity became the critically-acclaimed book Musicians in Tune.

Jenny has spent her life in the company of some of the greatest musical and cultural influencers of the last 50 years - and the journey she takes to finding her own sense of self and creative ability makes Jennifer Juniper a truly captivating and inspiring story.

Previously published in Italy, Image Comics on 22nd April are publishing an English language version of Paolo Baron and Ernesto Carbonetti's graphic novel...

...a love letter to the Beatles that spins a 'What if?' tale about George Harrison , John Lennon , and Ringo Starr becoming detectives to uncover the truth of their friend’s death - all while they mourn his passing in the spotlight.

It's not really about the PiD myth of buried clues, as Paolo Baron explains:

They’re just a bunch of random coincidences discovered by overheated fans. My book is about a strong friendship and four young men coming together and suddenly losing one of their friends…
