I write about the American dream: if you set your mind to do something, you can do it. My fans know they're getting the real thing.
My weakness is wearing too much leopard print.
Whatever you have a passion for, then you must do. If you want to write, write about something you know about.
If you want to achieve your dreams, you must follow them, and the best way to follow them is not to think about wanting to be very rich, but to think about doing something that you really want to do.
I have this theory that people in Hollywood don't read. They read 'Vanity Fair' and then consider themselves terribly well read. I think I can basically write about anybody without getting caught.
Do not copy my style! The first rule of writing is write about what you know, not what you think you know. So, think about what you've done in your life and write about that.
I don't believe in writing anything that I don't know about or haven't researched about personally. I like to transport the reader to places, and in order to do that I have to do the research.
Who is ready to settle for five minutes when three hours does nicely?
My philosophy is, unless you're sick and need help, why bother?
I managed to take a family trip to the Bahamas and it was quite lovely.
All of my books have the potential to become movies, it's just a question of finding a studio who wants to get behind me and put up the money to make the movie.
I know that I am very popular in Holland, in fact I have visited Amsterdam several times to publicize my books. I have a great publisher in Holland and they have published all of my books in Dutch.
I have written 20 books, and each one is like having a baby. Writing is not easy; some people want to write books but just can't put a story together. I can put together a story that interests both me and my readers.
Agents are essential, because publishers will not read unsolicited manuscripts.
The biggest critics of my books are people who never read them.
