Fern Michaels Biography:

There are very few writers that were gifted to transition from one genre to another very well. In fact, many writers tend to fail and be stuck writing one type of genre for the rest of their life. That isn’t the case for Fern Michaels, however.

Fern Michaels is one of the most prolific romance and thriller authors of this day and age, and continues to write novels that hit home and are real page turners. To learn all about this incredible writer, read on to learn of her, life, career, books, and the future for her writing career now.

The Early Life Of Fern Michaels

Fern Michaels, born Mary Ruth Kuczkir, arrived on April 9th, 1933 in Hastings, Pennsylvania. She was born at a very small weight, weighing only four and a half pounds at birth. Her father had nicknamed her ‘dink’ for her small stature at birth. She still is called this very old nickname by her beloved family and friends.

Fern moved to New Jersey after marrying her high school sweetheart. She had five children with her husband, whom she remains married to. After her youngest child went off to college in 1973, she began her writing career.

The Long Road To Success

Her writing career didn’t come easy. In fact, her first manuscript did not sell. Her second manuscript ended up selling, and since then, she has had more than sixty books make it on the New York Time’s best-seller list.

Fern has sold over 14 million copies of her beloved books, and continues to write novel that are both romantic and thrillers to this day. In total, Fern has written over 100 novels and stories in a career that spans from 1975 to now. She is currently at work on a new novel for 2014.

The recurring characters best known are in her sisterhood and Kentucky series, and are also the most liked of all characters she has written over her forty year career.

Foundations She Has Started

As a child, Fern’s grandmother always told her that if God blessed her, make sure she gave back to the world and shared her blessings. The message was taken to heart by her granddaughter. As she grew older and her writing career took off, Fern founded the Fern Michaels foundation, which aims to help kids who need scholarships.

The foundation gives out four year scholarships to deserving students. Also, Fern has helped to establish day care centers and pre-schools that have reasonable rates for single mothers taking care of their children on their own.

Fern’s Favorite Books That She Has Written

These books include Texas Rich, For All Their Lives, Texas Heat, Sins Of The Flesh, Seasons Of Her Life, as well as Texas Sunrise, To Have And To Hold, and even Desperate Measures. These books are Fern’s number one favorites that she has written, and are in no particular numerical order.

Fern’s Books That Are Fan Favorites

Fern’s books have been featured on the New York Time’s best-seller list over sixty times. With over 100 books written, she is well-known to those that work on the New York Times list. No matter how many books she has written, though, there are certain ones that remain a fan favorite to fans both old and new.

These are the top fan favorites that fans have picked and that have ended up on sites such as good reads. These include Weekend Warriors, Hokus Pokus, Free Fall, Hide And Seek, Texas Rich, The Jury, Lethal Justice, Vendetta, and Payback.

Fern’s Personal Life

Fern has been married to her husband for over forty years, and has five grown children. She lives in the town of Summerville, South Carolina, on a plantation she purchased. The plantation is over 300 years old, and she claims a ghost name Mary inhabits the place.

She also says Mary leaves her messages on her computer. Fern likes to restore her home, spend time writing, and also take care of matters with her foundation. She is also a huge animal lover and an animal’s rights activist. She was inducted into the New Jersey hall of fame not too long ago.

Her 300 Year Old Plantation

As stated earlier, Fern says she owns a beautiful southern plantation in Summerville that is said to be well over 300 years old. The plantation is in the state of South Carolina. She shares the home with her husband, as well as a ghost named Mary Margaret.

Mary Margaret has also been documented by previous owners over the past few centuries. In her spare time, Fern likes to do restoration projects on the plantation, making sure it stays up to date and remains livable for years to come.

Her Time As A New York Time’s Best Seller

Thanks to her success, Fern has been on the New York Time’s best-seller list for over sixty of her different novels. She has sold over 14 million copies of her books, and continues to sell more books. She is still working on novels at her home in Summerville, and her novel, Betrayal, was the last one to be featured on the prominent New York Time’s best-seller list.
