Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown was born in Waco, Texas. When she was five years old, her family relocated to Ft. Worth, where she spent her childhood. Reading was a hobby encouraged by her parents. English was an easy choice for a major when she entered Texas Christian University.
Sandra Brown is the authoress of more than 50 “New York Times “best sellers”. She began her writing career in 1981 and since then has published 65 novels. There are seventy million copies of her books in print worldwide and her works have been translated into thirty languages.
In 1968, she got married to Michael Brown, a former television anchorman who produced the award wining documentary film “Dust to Dust“. They lived in Ft. worth, Texas. Then, she continued her education at Oklahoma State University and the University of Texas at Arlington.
Before embarking on her writing carrier, she worked as a model at the Dallas Apparel Mart, and in television, including weather casting for WFAA-TV in Dallas and feature reporting on the national syndicated program “PM Magazine”. Taking the advice of a published writer who had appeared on Michael Brown’s morning TV talk show, Sandra attended a writers’ conference at the University of Houston where she met authors, literary agents, and publishers. Inspired by the ideas exchanged at the conference, she tried her hand at writing for the lucrative romance market. She sold her first two books within thirteen days of each other. “Love’s Encore” and ”Love Beyond Reason” where published in 1981.
In 1987, brown decided to move away from bonafide romance into the main steam fiction market. The gamble paid off in 1990 when the “Mirror Image” made The New York Times best seller list. Since then, all her novels had been the best seller, including reprints of the early romance. In 1992, “France Silk” was made into ABC-TV movie.
For five consecutive years she received award from Waldenbooks for having the best selling contemporary romance. She was given two similar Awards from B. Dalton. In 1992 the American Business Women’s association honored her with a Distinguish Circle of Success. She served as keynote speaker at romance writers of America’s annual convention in 1985, and in 1998 that organization recognized her with their Lifetime Achievement Award.

She is a member of Author’s Guild, Mystery Writers of America, International Association of Crime Writers, novelist, Inc and Literary Partner.
