My Favourite Author
I have read lots of her books and enjoyed every one. They have been in hardback, paperback and also on my kindle. My favourite book is Remembrance, which was my first ever Danielle Steel book I got. I have read it lots of times and won’t part with my copy in case I want to read it again and again and again.
Every one of her books have been best sellers and she has sold about 800 million copies in 69 countries and also in 43 languages. She currently has written 98 novels. and 17 children’s books. She also has books that have gone to the top of the list of Best Sellers as well as the Wall Street Journal.
Danielle lives in San Francisco and Paris. As well as being the mother of 9 children, she is the owner and founder of two organisations. One of which is named the Nick Traina Foundation in honour of her son for who she wrote a very good non-fiction book called ‘His Bright Light: The Story of Nick Traina’.
This is the story of his life and his battle against darkness (manic depression). The book was a wonderful tribute to her son who died when he was only 19 years old. I highly recommend this book to everyone and it had me in tears a few times.
The Foundation is used to finance Organisations who are involved in both mental illness and child abuse.
Danielle Steel still writes a lot of books and I have read most of them but still have a few to read as she has brought out a lot recently and I haven’t had time to catch up with them all.
Below is an excerpt from my favourite book Remembrance which also has me in tears every time I read it.
Her beloved Italian homeland shattered in the wake of World War II, exquisite Serena, Principessa di San Tibaldo, has nothing left except her name, her ancestry… and her heart which she gives completely and forever to Major Brad Fullerton.
Not even Brad’s ring–or his child–can protect her from the calculating wrath of the powerful Fullerton dynasty, and the woman who will become Serena’s bitter enemy. Sweeping from the war-torn palazzos of Rome to the glittering avenues of Manhattan and the glamorous world of high fashion.
Here is the vibrant story of one woman’s triumphant yet bittersweet journey of the heart.

I would finally like to say that I have read lots and lots of books from lots of different authors but have to admit I feel Danielle’s books are so very easy to read and very easy to lose yourself in the stories. While reading a book, I love to let my imagination run wild, deciding how people look, what their houses are like and what their friends/boyfriends (or spouses/lovers) are like. This is something that can’t be done if you are watching a movie.
