Meet the Author

Fern Michaels
Fern Michaels is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Sisterhood and Godmothers series and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy-five million copies of her books in print. Fern Michaels has built and funded several large day-care centers in her hometown, and is a passionate animal lover who has outfitted police dogs across the country with special bulletproof vests. She shares her home in South Carolina with her four dogs and a resident ghost named Mary Margaret. Visit her website at www.fernmichaels.com.

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."

    I just finished reading Kiss and Tell. It was Fern's usual wonderful book, the Sisterhood series keeps me interested and I look forward to them always. I started reading this book and couldn't put it down. I was disappointed in having it end the way it did and now have to wait for the next book to see what happens next.

    *** Kiss and Tell does not live up to its expectations

    *** I am a little disappointed in the last couple of books. I feel they are shorter stories with much less action and suspense. The first Sisterhood books had much more drama and humor to them. I feel the books just keep coming for the sake of another story that doesn't really get told. In Kiss and Tell it lacked the usual planning stages to a job as well as a great ending. I will continue to read the series but I am hoping that they juice it up!!!!!!!!

    You just can’t beat a good vigilante story. This book isn’t as good with the planning and details as the earlier ones, but interesting in its own right. I’ll be looking forward to the “new” series with the guys.

    Tired

    The arrogance and hi-jinx of the Sisterhood have finally gotten old and stale. Each book is just more of the same old, same old. Even the wording is often being reused. How many times do we have to read about somebody's fist shooting high into the air. Not to mention using plagiarism inthe form of being as happy as a witch in a broom factory, which was used twice after being stolen from a commercial. I think it is time for the Sisterhood series to end. These latest few books are just a very slow and tedious decline of a once great series. Stephanie Clanahan

    Lead in to a new series

    A fast read and lets you know that she is starting a new series featuring the men of the sisterhood. Blended in new characters with ease. Enjoyable

    Enough!

    I have read all of the sisterhood books, liked most of them, but fhis one was too much of Myra & Annie's big bad attitude.They were more enjoyable when all of the characters (including the guys) were part of the story.
