Born in 1947 in New York City, Danielle was the only child of a Portuguese Diplomat’s daughter and a German Jewish Immigrant. Danielle’s roots as a writer can probably be traced all the way back to her days in France where she was afforded the chance to attend her parent’s parties and observe the mannerisms of the wealthy and fortunate.

With her parents divorcing while she was so young, Danielle spent so much time with her father in New York and Europe that she rarely saw her mother. The author’s path to success began after her marriage to an American banker at the age of 18.

This followed stints at Parsons School of Design and New York City University where Danielle Steel studied literature design and fashion design. By the time she was 19, Danielle had finished her first manuscript.

However, she would spend a few more years working as a freelance writer, this while caring for her first child, before Danielle’s fiction work garnered any notable interest.

Danielle’s personal life has consisted of one all-consuming storm of confusion after another, especially when it comes to her many marriages and divorces. Despite her personal turmoil, Danielle’s literary achievements have endured, with the author becoming a near permanent fixture on bestseller lists across the country.

Danielle primarily writes romance. She introduces her characters while they are in a state of crisis and then explores their lives as they try to overcome the impossible. While many have dismissed Danielle for writing fluff, the author hasn’t shied away from tackling difficult subjects such as incest and war.

She has also adapted her writing style over the years, with her heroines growing stronger and showing an unbending will and tenacity. That hasn’t stopped her from eliciting criticisms regarding the redundant nature of her writing and the fact that she tends to tell readers her story rather than showing it to them.

For those fans of her more popular books, especially those individuals looking for a second chance to indulge in the adventures of their favorite characters, Danielle has been very adamant about her disinterest in the prospect of writing sequels.

For Danielle, the idea of having her novels being compared to their predecessors doesn’t appeal to her, which is why she primarily writes standalones.

Danielle Steel Awards

Despite the criticisms her books receive, Danielle has been rewarded with accolades for her efforts inside and outside the publishing field, this including an Outstanding Achievement Award in Mental Health, an Outstanding Achievement award for Work with Adolescents and a Distinguished Service in Mental Health Award, not to mention being decorated as an Officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the government of France.

Danielle Steel Books into Movies

Danielle’s success is such that nearly two dozen of her book have been adapted into movies and television films of one sort or another, this including Jewels, Crossings, Kaleidoscope, Family Album, No Greater Love, Fine Things, Message from Nam, and Full Circle to mention but a few.

Even Danielle Steel fans will be hard-pressed to admit that they have watched every single one of the movies that have been adapted from her novels, not when new plans are being made to adapt even more of her novels for the big and small screen every single day.

It is difficult to deny the impact Danielle has had on the culture of the world.

Best Danielle Steel Books

Danielle has written so many books that it has become the norm for her fans to argue over which one is the best, with those titles that often receive a mention including the following:

Jewels: Sarah Whitfield met William on a trip to Europe her parents dragged her along for in an effort to banish her dark thoughts over her failed marriage. The two fell in love and married quickly. However, their honeymoon coincided with the start of the war, which saw William join the Allied Forces, abandoning his wife and their first child.

Sarah survived the devastation and desolation of war to create the prestigious Whitefield Jewelry Store. Sarah Whitefield tells the story of her love and loss on her 75th birthday.

Anyone that dismisses Danielle for her cheesy and clichéd stories will be blown away by the depth of this epic tale.

Safe Harbor: Matt Bowles met eleven-year-old Pip one random afternoon and he decided to teach the girl to draw, moved by the beauty of her mother. Since the accident a year ago, Pip and her mother have struggled with inconsolable grief.

Matt cannot help but see his own shattered family in Pip and her mother. Ophelia, on the other hand, cannot ignore the joy that Matt brings into her daughter’s life. She realizes that a ray of hope might have finally pierced her world of darkness.

This is another one of those books that breaks the typical mold of Danielle Steel’s books. Safe Harbor often tops most lists of the best Danielle Steel books.

When Does The Next Danielle Steel book come out?

The next book by Danielle Steel is Accidental Heroes and will be released on March, 20th 2018.
