Meet the Author

Fern Michaels
With over than sixty million copies of her books sold around the world, New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels pens romance after epic romance, each filled with all the drama and heartbreak her loyal fans can handle.

Biography

Born Mary Ruth Kuczkir in Hastings, Pennsylvania, Fern Michaels was married and the mother of five before she embarked on her long, successful writing career – a career that began with something midway between a challenge and a command. When her youngest child went off to kindergarten, Michaels's husband imperiously ordered her (in just so many words) to get off her ass and get a job. Long years in the domestic trenches had left her short on marketable skills, so she decided trade off her lifelong love of reading and write a book. Just like that. The domineering, unsupportive husband is history. And Michaels has gone on to pen bestselling romance after bestselling romance. Just like that..

With typical modesty, Michaels does not claim to be a great writer; however, she admits proudly to being a born storyteller. Her bulging bookshelf proves she is all over the map, producing with equal facility hot historicals, lighthearted contemporary capers, adrenaline-laced thrillers, and heartwarming tales of family and friendship. She is especially adept at writing stories about women who prevail in hard times – a reflection, perhaps, of her own struggles in her marriage and early career.

Raised to believe that the fortunate in life have an obligation to give back, Michaels devotes a lot of time to philanthropic concerns. She has established a foundation that grants four-year scholarships to needy students and has set up pre-schools and daycare centers for single mothers. She is also an avid animal lover and has been known to own as many as five dogs at a time.

In 1993, Michaels picked up stakes and moved from her home in New Jersey to a 300-year-old plantation house in Charleston, South Carolina. She and the dogs share the house amicably with a friendly ghost whom Fern has dubbed Mary Margaret. In addition to stopping clocks and moving pillows from room to room, Mary Margaret has been known to occasionally leave flowers on Michaels's nightstand!

Good To Know

Michaels confesses in our interview: "I'm a junk food junkie and a chocoholic. My desk drawers have more junk food in them than paper and pens. I chomp and chew all day long. At night I get up and eat Marshmallow Fluff right out of the jar. In between eating, I write."

Her first "sort of, kind of job" was in market research. Michaels recounts the gig's low-point in our interview: "I had a partner and we were testing a new pressurized drain cleaner. All you had to do was put this can in the drain, squeeze and supposedly the drain would open right up. It did, all right.

"The whole wall collapsed, and stuff that was in there for a hundred years flew everywhere. The lady didn't tell us the drain backed up to her kitchen drain and disposal. The company didn't care that we smelled like a sewer or that our clothes were ruined. The lady got a new bathroom, and we both got fired."

Michaels reveals some of her sources of inspiration: "Inspiration comes from everywhere. The title for Finders Keepers came from a cartoon with two chipmunks that my grandson was watching. I had a title but no story. I finally came up with one to fit that wonderful title.

"Names for characters sometime come from television. I had a character named Metaxis which is odd to begin with. There is a news anchor on T.V. who has that same last name. Sometimes it will just be a word someone says in passing, something I read or saw. There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's almost like, okay, I need something here, stay alert and it will happen."

    charming contemporary romantic suspense

    Ten years ago, Matt Starr jilted Lily at the altar because he feared commitment. While she waited for his arrival at the church, he drove off on his motorcycle and with no capital began the now very successful Digitech. Forty-nine weeks ago, he joined much of the firm on an Extreme Vacation where the guide turned out to be Lily. Matt immediately decides that he wants Lily at his side forever and begins a campaign to regain her trust. Three weeks from now, Matt and Lily will marry in Natchez, Mississippi because they never stopped loving each other. <P>History repeats itself and Matt fails to show up again. However, this time three thugs abduct Matt. However, Matt¿s dog Gracie convinces Lily that this time Matt did not flee on his Harley. With normal and paranormal help, Lily begins searching for the missing groom. <P> CHARMING LILY is a charming contemporary romantic suspense that is fun to read as amateur sleuths battle with amateur kidnappers with Matt being the prize. The cast makes the story line work to include an unnecessary but quite entertaining side bar into the paranormal that Fern Michaels cleverly fits into the main plot. Ms. Michaels charms her audience with this enticing novel. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Awesome story!

    Lily Harper had been left at the alter by Matt Starr before. It took him a long time to convince her to give him a second chance. During their time apart Matt had built Digitech, a now famous software company. Dennis Wagner and Marcus Collins were his most trusted men. They had been with Matt since the beginning. Yet one of them was selling secrets to the competition. Marcus was trying to convince Matt it was Dennis. But Marcus was the one in major financial trouble and desperate for money despite the huge salary, bonuses, and company perks. As soon as the new software was announced, which would change the high-tech world, Matt would retire. He had only to marry Lily and fire one of his best friends. That was ... until he was kidnapped! <BR><BR> When Matt did not show up for the wedding, Lily was left standing at the alter for the second time by the same man! She was deeply hurt until foul play became obvious. A necklace given to her (called a 'Wish Keeper') was sending her short visions of Matt. The necklace and Matt's dog, Gracie, was the only hope Lily and her friends had of locating him. <BR><BR> ***** Awesome story! Just a touch of the super natural (in the necklace) and combined with modern day computer geniuses (I LOVE computer nerds!) makes an excellent story for everyone! I could not bring myself to stop reading, so I finished it in less than a day! Be warned, don't start this one until you have plenty of reading time ahead of you! Highly recommended!
