Fern Michaels isn t a person I m not sure she s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence Fern Michaels is what I DO Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I was born because according to him I was a dinky little thing weighing in at four and a half pounds However, I answer to Fern since people arecomfortable with a name they can pronounce.As they say, the past is prologue I grew up, got a job, got married, had five kids When my youngest went off to Kindergarten, my husband told me to get off my ass and get a job Those were his exact words I didn t know how to do anything except be a wife and mother I was also a voracious reader having cut my teeth on The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Cherry Ames and the like The library was a magical place for me It still is to this day Rather than face the outside world with no skills, I decided to write a book For some reason that didn t intimidate me As my husband said at the time, stupid is as stupid does Guess what, I don t have that husband anyGuess what else I wrote 99 books, most of them New York Times Best Sellers.Moving right along hereSeveral years ago I left Ballantine Books, parted company with my agent, sold my house in New Jersey that I had lived in all my married life and in 1993 moved to South Carolina I figured if I was going to go through trauma let it be all at one time It was a breeze The kids were all on their own at that point The dump was a 300 year old plantation house that is listed in the National Registry that I remodeled Today it is beyond belief as are the gardens and the equally old Angel Oaks that drip Spanish moss Unfortunately, I could not get my ghost to relocate This ghost has been documented by previous owners Mary Margaret as we call her, is a friendly She is also mischievous It took me two weeks to figure out that she didn t like my coffee cups They would slide off the table or counter or else they d break in the dishwasher I bought red checkered ones All are intact as of this writing She moves pillows from one room to the other and she stops all the clocks in the house at 9 10 in the a.m at least once a week When the Azaleas are in bloom, and only then, I find blooms on my night stand I have this glorious front porch and during the warm months I see my swing moving early in the morning when the air is still and again late in the day She doesn t spook the dogs I always know when she s around because the five of them line up and look like they re at a tennis match As of this writing we re co habiting nicely.Most writers love what they do and I m no exception I love it when I get a germ of an idea and get it down on paper I love breathing life into my characters I love writing about women who persevere and prevail because that s what I had to do to get to this point in time It s another way of saying it doesn t matter where you ve been, what matters is where you re going and how you get there The day I finally prevailed was the day I was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame For me it was an awesome day and there are no words to describe it.I ve been telling stories and scribbling for 37 years I hope I can continue for another 37 years It wasn t easy during some of those years As I said, I had to persevere My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot She said when God is good to you, you have to give back For a while I didn t know how to do that When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels Foundation READ FERN MICHAELS FULL BIOGRAPHY HERE

    I am going to be honest and admit that I read this anthology strictly for the Kate Clayborn novella I was not disappointed The premise of two best friends and colleagues who have so much mutual respect for the other that they absolutely refuse to address the fact they are stupid in love with each other was so splendidly well done The juxtaposition of a grumpy who doesn t like Christmas for very valid reasons and the sunflower who does love Christmas coming together over some baked holiday coo I am going to be honest and admit that I read this anthology strictly for the Kate Clayborn novella I was ...

    This was a cute novel that had 3 short stories around 100 pages each by 3 different authors which focused on love over Christmas I m not a big fan of romances, but found that I could handle the stories without getting too bored 1 Starry Night by Fern Michaels 2 stars This was my least favourite story since it had so many details in it that it took away from the general story There was a lot going on, but hardly any interactions between the two love interests I think this would of been This was a cute novel that had 3 short stories around 100 pages each by 3 different authors which focused on love over Christmas I m not a big fan of romances, but found that I could handle the stories without getting too bored 1 Starry Night by Fern Michaels 2 stars This was my least favourite story since it had so many details in it that it took away from the general story There was a lot going on, but hardly any interactions between the two love interests I think this would of been better iftime was spend building a connection instead of talking about her radio show, renovating selling the book store, speed dating, Christmas party, etc 2 Mistletoe and Mimosas by Tara Sheets 3 stars First thinking back all I could remember is that I liked this story and there was a foster kitten I liked how the characters hadof a connection than in the first story and it didn t take too long to figure out what had happened to them in the past 3 Missing Chri...

    I read this book for Kate Clayborn Her novella, Missing Christmas, is a winner and highly recommended I m impressed that she picks up on a secondary character from her Chance of a Lifetime series so easily Jasper comes to life in the opening pages almost as if the first book was written yesterday He is an exasperating character in Beginner s Luck, bu...

    This is mostly a review of the Clayborn novella 4.5 stars with a brief note about why I requested A Snowy Little Christmas because Kate Clayborn s name is attached to it That s the only reason I love her writing Anthologies are a great way to try new authors, and every time I find a new author to love, I m stoked So I had zero knowledge about the stories aside from the holiday theme , high hopes for the Clayborn vague thoughts about finding a new author to binge and follow spoiler a This is mostly a review of the Clayborn novella 4.5 stars with a brief note about why I requested A Snowy Little Christmas because Kate...

    I ll admit I wanted to read this Christmas anthology because of Fern Michaels being a contributing author However, the novella I ended up liking the best was by Kate Clayborn I had never heard of her before, but her novella that was told from the dual point of view was different enough to really catch and grab my attention The story line of two business partners who have been fighting their attraction to each other was fun, quirky and so much fun I especially enjoyed the male character s exp I ll admit I ...
