Meet the Author

V. C. Andrews

One of the most popular authors of all time, V.C. Andrews has been a bestselling phenomenon since the publication of the spellbinding classic Flowers in the Attic. That blockbuster novel began the renowned Dollanganger family saga, which includes Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows. Since then, readers have been captivated by more than sixty novels in nearly twenty bestselling series. V.C. Andrews’s novels have sold more than 106 million copies and have been translated into twenty-two foreign languages.

Biography

"The face of fear I display in my novels is not the pale specter from the sunken grave, nor is it the thing that goes bump in the night," V. C. Andrews once told Douglas E. Winter. "Mine are the deep-seated fears established when we are children, and they never quite go away: the fear of being helpless, the fear of being trapped, the fear of being out of control."

Andrews's novel Flowers in the Attic launched the popular genre sometimes dubbed "children in jeopardy" -- stories about young people abused, lied to, and preyed upon by their evil guardians. The author's own childhood was not nearly so lurid, though it did have an element of tragedy: As a teenager she had a bad fall, which resulted in the development of bone spurs. A botched surgery, combined with arthritis, forced her to use a wheelchair or crutches for the rest of her life.

Andrews lived with her mother and worked as a commercial artist until the 1970s, when she began to write in earnest. Most of her early stories and novels went unpublished (one exception was "I Slept with My Uncle on My Wedding Night," which appeared in a pulp confession magazine). Finally, in 1979, Flowers in the Attic made it into print. The book soared to No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and was followed by two equally successful sequels, Petals on the Wind and If There Be Thorns. Critics weren't always kind -- a Washington Post reviewer wrote that Flowers in the Attic "may well be the worst book I have ever read" -- but that didn't matter to millions of Andrews's readers, who devoured her gruesome fairy tales as fast as she could pen them.

As E. D. Huntley points out in V. C. Andrews: A Critical Companion, Andrews's novels fit neatly into the "female Gothic" tradition, in which an innocent young woman is trapped in an isolated mansion and persecuted by a villain. Andrews's own contribution was to take some of the themes implicit in early Gothic novels -- incest, sexual jealousy, and obsession -- and make them sensationally explicit in her works.

As most of her fans know by now, V. C. Andrews died in 1986, but new V. C. Andrews books keep popping up on the bestseller lists. That's because the Andrews estate hired a ghost writer, Andrew Neiderman, to continue writing books in the late author's style. Andrews's heirs have been cagey about just how much unfinished work she left behind when she died, but testimony during a 1993 tax case suggested that Andrews had only completed a portion of Garden of Shadows, the eighth book (out of more than 50) published under her name.

Still, even if the vast majority of "V. C. Andrews" books weren't actually written by V. C. Andrews, many of her fans are happy to have her tradition carried on. Neiderman has drawn on Andrews's novels, notebooks, and drawings for inspiration. "Don't make this sound weird," he once said in a Washington Post interview, "but sometimes I do feel possessed." To the original V. C. Andrews, who believed in precognition and reincarnation, it probably wouldn't sound weird at all.

Good To Know

Andrews wrote nine novels before Flowers in the Attic, including a science fantasy titled The Gods of the Green Mountain. Later, when she was a bestselling novelist, she wanted to try her hand at different kinds of fiction, but her publisher discouraged her. "I am supposed to stay in this niche, whatever it is, because there is so much money in it," she told Douglas Winter. "I mean, I have tapped a gold mine and they don't want to let go of it. I don't like that, because I want to branch out."

Though V. C. Andrews went by the name Virginia, her birth name was Cleo Virginia Andrews, not Virginia Cleo Andrews. She had planned to publish her books under the name Virginia Andrews, but her first publisher printed Flowers in the Atticas the work of "V. C. Andrews" in hopes that the gender-neutral name would make the book appealing to male readers.

    Very different than what I thought it would be

    I've just read Wicked Forest and I have to say that it took a turn that I didn't see coming. I never thought that Willows married would last but I also thought that Thatcher was just trying to get the house away for Willow and her crazy family. Very different and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    Read these back in HS and I'll say it again, this is one of the better series I remember. The writing style helps but sometimes the characters you just faceplam you know? Anyway, remembered this and the last book pretty good. But while liking the later books, they weren't as good but still good. This one has Willow finding who she and her family really are, a romance blooming and getting used to her new home.

    Why in the world is this novel over $20 for Nook? I have owned the paperback and every other V.C. Andrews book ever written for many years. I have been a lifelong fan, and although this is one of the best works, I could not see paying that much for the story. Disappointing.

    NOt worth even a second glance!

    every v.c andrew book is the same. it has incest in it and then the main character loses their virginity to a boyfriend they met after coming to live with her real parents, etc. Hated all of it. it was the worst reading experience for me. Nothing but a erotic novel.

    VC Andrew's biggest fan!

    Although this was lacking some of the scandal found in her other titles, I still loved it! I have read everything she has ever written and have not been disappointed yet. I was a bit disappointed in the ending to this one...it just seemed to lack flair. But I will keep on reading VC Andrews.

    not as good as the first

    Well, the Debeers series isn't my favorite but when i finished with Willow I thought I mind ad well get the second one. I loved it. It had a lot of conflict and it was good that way. If you read Willow read the second one. It was really good even if it was a bit confusing

    Shocker

    This one keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you fall off it in the end. You never expect what to happen. It's one of those things where if you tell the end you tell the whole story. It has the same intrigue as the earlier books, and you end up really sympathyzing with the characters and despising a select few. I would definetly this whole series!

    Different

    There were good and bad aspects of this book that were different from other VC Andrews books. I agree with the other posts about the dissapointment of the marriage however, I also thought that it was a plesant suprise because that is so different than what would normally happen in an Andrews book. There were some really predictable parts though. I knew what Logan would do before it even happened. So 4 stars is as good as I can go but, please read the book it is definately worth it.

    A good read

    I thought this book was very good, but not quite a 5 star read. I enjoyed it although certain parts made me wonder. I still reccommend it as I do all of her stories.

    v.c. andrews addict

    I was seriously disappointed with this book it seemed like willow did nothing to save her marriage. I also thought she rushed into the marriage for all the wrong reasons. Unlike other V.C. Andrews books love didn't conqueror all.

    Neither good nor bad

    All VC Andrews books are easy to read and very interesting however I am a little disappointed in some of the events of this book. Overall, it is a different outcome from all the other series that I have read. I was hoping that Thatcher will try to work out the problem with Willow. Very predictable outcome....

    One Word... upseting!

    Now before you think my headline is negative... listen to my expliantion. I love this book, I don't think any V.C. Andrews book is as great as this one. This book had so much conflict that it made me upset. I know that when reading Wicked Forrest i caught myself crying. Never in my lifetime was i ever upset with a book. Willow has such a remarkable life... and everything is going wrong for her. I just was very upset but intrigued. I would have to say by far this is V.C. Andrews greatest work... that and My Sweet Adrina.
