Meet the Author

Sidney Sheldon

Novelist and screenwriter Sidney Sheldon remains one of the world's top bestselling authors. His books have sold more than 300 million copies and have been published in dozens of languages—Guinness World Records heralds him as one of the most translated authors in the world. He is also the only writer to have won an Oscar, a Tony, and an Edgar award.

Biography

Best known today for his exciting blockbuster novels, Sidney Sheldon was the author of The Best Laid Plans, Nothing Lasts Forever, The Stars Shine Down, The Doomsday Conspiracy, Memories of Midnight, The Sands of Time, Windmills of the Gods, If Tomorrow Comes, Master of the Game, Rage of Angels, Bloodline, A Stranger in the Mirror, and The Other Side of Midnight. Almost all of them were number-one international bestsellers. His first book, The Naked Face, was acclaimed by the New York Times as "the best first mystery of the year" and received an Edgar Award. Most of his novels became major feature films or TV miniseries, and there are more than 275 million copies of his books in print throughout the world.

Before he became a novelist, Sheldon had already won a Tony Award for Broadway's Redhead and an Academy Award for The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer. He has written the screenplays for twenty-three motion pictures, including Easter Parade (with Judy Garland) and Annie Get Your Gun. In addition, he penned six other Broadway hits and created three long-running television series, including Hart to Hart and I Dream of Jeannie, which he also produced. A writer who delighted millions with his award-winning plays, movies, novels, and television shows, Sidney Sheldon reigned as one of the most popular storytellers of all time.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Sheldon:

"When I was 17, I was happy to be working in a drugstore, because I could steal enough sleeping pills to commit suicide."

"I have bi-polar syndrome and was not aware what was disturbing me until I received an Academy Award and went to see a psychiatrist."

"I have worked 7 days a week as long as I can remember. A business manager of mine gave me $25 worth of tennis lessons. I went down to my tennis court and we played once a week. I really enjoyed it. Playing with the pro one day, my teacher said to me that the money had been spent and did I want to continue. I started to say yes, then I realized that I didn't want to be out on the tennis court. I wanted to be in my office writing. That was 25 years ago and I haven't been on my tennis court since."

    An oldie but a goodie

    I read this book as a teenager and now again in my late 30's. Luckily I had forgot the ending, but the read was still so enjoyable. It's a perfect weekend book as it is relatively short compared to today's novels. There is certainly a vintage feel with all of the anachronisms of pre-computer life.

    Excellent suspense!

    This was my first Sidney Sheldon ( as well as his), and I think it is my favorite. I read the whole book in one day!

    Good but not his best, but his first

    Anyone who has read any of Sidney Sheldon's novels will know that he is extraordinary in his writing, and this novel is no exception--as long as you read it with the mindset of, 'THIS IS HIS FIRST NOVEL.' With that understanding you'll love The Naked Face. Without it, it is just average.

    Intriguing Mystery

    This book had me involved in it the entire time. Once I picked it up I didn't want to let go. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.

    Okay but not the best

    This book was fair. It was not a bad book, however, I think Sidney Sheldon has written better. It's worth reading, but I had the ending figured out by the middle of the book.
