Meet the Author

Fern Michaels

Fern Michaels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Fool Me Once, Sweet Revenge, The Nosy Neighbor, Pretty Woman, and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy 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.

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."

    The writing was terrible... i couldn't even finish the book. I

    The writing was terrible... i couldn't even finish the book. I tried, but the writing and scenarios were so out of touch with the reader I finally gave up. It was like a 5th grader wrote the book. It read like a first draft that the author was just trying to get out the main idea of the story and then never looked at it again. The dialogue was boring and unrealistic and annoying. I did not care what happened to the main characters at all. Sorry to be harsh, I have a lot of respect for authors to put themselves out there, but seriously, the editor who let this through the cracks should rethink their career.

    Not worth the money

    Preposterous plot! Unbelievable characters! We are to believe a billionaire and a multi-millionaire go sleuthing behind the FBI's back! Silly.

    Don't waste your money or time.

    This is an extremely poorly written book. The premise is screwy and the characters are so badly drawn as to be almost laughable. I read lots of books and have seldom read one so bad. I read it through, hoping for something to come of it, but nothing did. Do yourselves a favor and re-read an old favorite or try something totally new, but don't waste your time on this book. I think this is the first Fern Michaels book I've read and it will definitely be the last.

    Not Michael's best effort

    I have read many Fern Michael's books over the years. I didn't feel this one was up to the standard of most of her other books. It was very predictable, but also not very realistic. It seemed like it ended pretty abruptly, with several isues left unresolved. Maybe that was on purpose to set the stage for a series, but I'm not sure I would read more.

    Ok

    Ok, so I just read the free sample of this book and it was notI rated it great. I mean it. That is why I rated it 2 stars. Also, person who rated this book "fun" I am not sure if you can use the phrase "could not put it down" for a nook, beacause technically, it is an e-book, not a real book which you could physically put down. Know what I mean?

    This is yet another of Fern Michaels great books, it is a very quick read, hate to put down kind of book. I highly recommend this to those folks who have read her books in the past. I anxiously await her newest novel.

    Boring!

    This was a book I could DEFINITELY put down. I would read it for a few minutes then fall asleep. Never connected with the main characters. Waste of time.
