Meet the Author

Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Sparks
Sparks is a sort of national sweetheart -- a good-looking family man who writes heart-tugging novels that rarely fail to elicit tears or book sales. His wildly popular The Notebook kicked off a steady string of quietly triumphant love stories.

Biography

Ever since The Notebook made Nicholas Sparks a word-of-mouth publishing sensation in 1996, he has maintained his status as a bestselling author of tragedy-tinged love stories. His spare, simply themed novels star ordinary people overcome by extraordinary emotions, and changed by them.

It's possible that Sparks might have enjoyed his level of popularity by writing these stories strictly from imagination, but in fact his family's struggles play an important role in many of his books, especially the earliest novels. (For exampleThe Notebook, his tale of a great love affair extending into old age, was inspired by his wife's grandparents; Message in a Bottle drew from Sparks' father's life story and A Walk to Remember from his late sister's.) In addition, a three-week trip he and his older sibling Micah undertook in 2003 became the basis for Three Weeks with My Brother, a unique memoir as moving and tenderhearted as any of his fiction.

Sparks is very methodical about his writing, an approach he makes transparent on his web site with several essays, updates on works in progress, and notes on the mechanics of his novels. Unsurprisingly, critics have faulted him for being too formulaic or cliched. Still, Sparks never fails to move his stories along quickly, maximizing emotional impact and featuring strong, down-to-earth characters. His endings also tend to depart from convention a bit, revealing tragedy where the walk into the sunset should be.

Although he is often classified as a Romance writer, Sparks is quick to point out that his books don't really satisfy the requirements of Romance publishers. Instead, he admits to writing love stories, a different genre altogether. Whatever he cares to call them, one thing's for sure: Nicholas Sparks continues to strike gold with his bittersweet novels of love and loss.

Good To Know

Sparks came to his career in an unconventional way: Sidelined after a running injury at University of Notre Dame, where he had won a full track scholarship and still holds the 4x800 relay record, he decided to write a book after his mother offhandedly suggested it as a way to make him stop brooding. His first novel remains unpublished ("It's a wonderful story -- except for the writing," he wrote later), but he kept trying. He later coauthored an inspirational title called Wokini; but his third novel (The Notebook) was the charm.

Blockbuster film adaptations of Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, and The Notebook have turned Sparks into a successful Hollywood franchise.

Sparks' wife is probably one of the most envied wives around. She met Nicholas in college at spring break, where he informed her that they would be married. She laughed him off, but they were married just over a year later. He told Barnes & Noble.com in a 1999 interview, "I suppose I'm a romantic. Ladies Home Journal has even called me the Most Romantic Husband in America. In fact, I sent my wife a dozen roses today."

Sparks was still selling pharmaceuticals and had only just delivered the final version of The Notebook to his agent when she called, two days after receiving the manuscript, telling him she expected "something big." That something big materialized within the week: a $1 million offer from Warner Books.

Sparks holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

    With My Final Breath

    With My Final Breath: A Hunger Games fanfiction

    Chapter One

    I am rudely awakened by my little brothers, Sander and Tinde. They race down the hall, screaming. I sit up slowly and rub my eyes. At only six, the young twins aren't eligible for the Games. But I, Rayner Phrae, am able to be selected at sixteen.
    I hear my mother scolding my loud brothers downstairs. A moment later, she calls me. "Rayner, dear, come down here! It's time to get prepared for the Reaping!"
    I oblige, rolling out of bed and getting to my feet. I walk to the kitchen and stand before my mother. Her short, graying red hair is pulled in a bun, and her brown eyes are sad. Her face is wrinkled and kindly.
    "Here, here, I have a lovely dress for you. From when I was a young lady like you." She says. She heads to her room, and I follow without a word.
    "Can't I just wear this, Mother?" I gesture to my baggy gray pants and white T-shirt.
    "No! Rayner, you must dress your best for this! Today is a big day!" My mother exclaims.
    I sigh softly and nod. "Okay."
    The aging woman turns to me, holding a lovely green dress. She hands it to me and urges me out, waving off my protests. "Go get ready! We mustn't be late!"
    I go to my room. I clutch the dress like a lifeline. After shutting my door, I change into the gown. It is a brilliant emerald color, and it falls in delicate folds to my ankles. It's strapless, and the skirt starts at my waist.
    The girl in the mirror smiles at me. She has a mane of curly, waist-length red hair and a foxlike, yet pretty, face. A spray of freckles dapple her impossibly pale skin. Her eyes shimmer, dazzling green.
    I turn away and head out.
    The day of the Reapings...
