Biography

Early Years

Danielle Fernande Dominique Schuelein-Steel was born on August 14, 1947 in San Francisco, California. Her parents were John Schulein Steel, a descendant of the founders of Lowenbrau beer and Norma da Câmara Stone Reis, the daughter of a Portuguese diplomat.[2] Steel spent much of her early childhood in France[3], where from an early age she was included in her parents' dinner parties, giving her an opportunity to observe the habits and lives of the wealthy and famous.[2] Her parents divorced when she was seven, however, and she was raised primarily in New York by her father, rarely seeing her mother, who had moved to Europe.[1] is the 226th day of the year (227th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Löwenbräu is a brewery in Munich. ...


Steel started writing stories as a child, and by her late teens had begun writing poetry.[4] A graduate of the Lycée Français de New York, class of 1965,[5] she studied literature design and fashion design[4], first at Parsons School of Design in 1963 and then at New York University from 1963-1967.[6] The Lycée Français de New York is a bilingual school based in Manhattan, New York which follows the French curriculum of study and allows students to study for the French general Baccalauréat, the international option of the French Baccalaureate, and the American High School Diploma. ... The Parsons School of Design, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City, is a design school affiliated (since 1970) with the New School University. ... New York University (NYU) is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational research university in New York City. ...


Becoming a Novelist

In 1965, when she was only eighteen, Steel married banker Claude-Eric Lazard[7] While a young wife, and still attending New York University, Steel began writing, completing her first manuscript the following year, when she was nineteen.[4] After the birth of their daughter, Beatrix, in 1968,[8] Steel became a copywriter for an advertising agency, then worked for a public relations agency in San Francisco. A client was highly impressed with her press releases and encouraged her to concentrate on writing books.[2] San Francisco redirects here. ...


After nine years of marriage, Steel's relationship with Lazard ended. Shortly before their divorce was finalized[8] her first novel, Going Home, was published. The novel contained many of the themes that her writing would become known for, including a focus on family issues and the impact of actions taken in the past on events of the present or future.[9]


Personal Turmoil

Steel married again, enjoying a jailhouse ceremony with Danny Zugelder. The marriage ended quickly, and Zugelder was later convicted of a series of rapes. Steel married her third husband, heroin-addicted William Toth, the day after her divorce from Zugelder was final, while she was 8 1/2 months pregnant with Toth's child.[7] This marriage ended within two years, and Steel successfully petitioned to have Toth's parental rights to their son Nicholas terminated.[10]


Drawing on her own personal romantic difficulties, Steel wrote Passion's Promise, about a socialite who falls in love with an ex-con, after the demise of her second marriage. Shortly after she divorced Toth, Steel released Remembrance, in which the husband is a heroin addict.[8]


Happier Times

Still optimistic about finding love, Steel married for the fourth time in 1981, to vintner John Traina.[8] Traina subsequently adopted Steel's son Nick and gave him his family name,[11] and Steel adopted his two sons Trevor and Todd.[7][12] Together they had an additional five children, Samantha, Victoria, Vanessa, Maxx and Zara.[8][7]


Coincidentally, beginning with her marriage to Traina in 1981, Steel has been a near-permanent fixture on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestsellers lists. In 1989, she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having a book on the New York Times Bestseller List for the most consecutive weeks of any author—381 consecutive weeks at that time.[9] Since her first book was published, every one of her novels has hit bestseller lists in paperback, and each one released in hardback has also been a hardback bestseller.[1] During this time Steel also contributed to her first non-fiction work. Having a Baby was published in 1984 and featured a chapter by Steel about suffering through miscarriage.[13] The same year she also published a book of poetry, Love: Poems.[14] The Guinness Book of Records (or in recent editions Guinness World Records, and in previous US editions Guinness Book of World Records) is a book published annually, containing an internationally recognized collection of superlatives: both in terms of human achievement and the extrema of the natural world. ... Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion is the natural or spontaneous end of a pregnancy at a stage where the embryo or the fetus is incapable of surviving, generally defined in humans at a gestation of prior to 20 weeks. ...


Steel also ventured into children's fiction, penning a series of 10 illustrated books for young readers. These books, known as the "Max and Martha" series, aim to help children face real life problems: new baby, new school, loss of loved one, etc. In addition, Steel has authored the "Freddie" series. These 4 books address other real life situations: first night away from home, trip to the doctor, etc.[14]


Determined to spend as much time as possible with her own children, Steel often wrote at night, making do with only four hours of sleep, so that she could be with her children during the day.[1] Steel is a prolific author, often releasing several books per year.[9] Each book takes 2 1/2 years to complete,[4], so Steel has developed an ability to juggle up to five projects at once, researching one book while outlining another, then writing and editing additional books.[9]


Nicholas Traina

His Bright Light, The story of her son, Nick Traina

In 1993 Steel sued a writer who intended to disclose in her book that her son Nick was fathered by William Toth instead of her current husband John Traina, despite the fact that adoption records are sealed in California.[1] A San Francisco judge made a highly unusual ruling in ordering the lawsuit sealed and kept secret after its filing. The order was later overturned by the California Supreme Court, who ruled that because Steel was famous, her son's adoption did not have the same privacy right, [1] and the book was allowed to be published.[15] At the time, none of her children with Traina knew that Nicholas had been adopted. Steel blamed this fight, and other revelations published in the biography written by Lorenzo Benet and Vickie L. Bane, for the breakup of her marriage to Traina.[1] Following their divorce, Steel used her experience to write Malice, about a happy marriage which is destroyed when the tabloids discover the wife's secret past.[8] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

The son at the center of the lawsuits, Nicholas Traina, committed suicide in 1997 as a result of his suffering from bipolar disorder as well as drug abuse.[11] Traina was the lead singer of San Francisco punk bands Link 80 and Knowledge. In honor of his memory, Steel wrote the nonfiction book His Bright Light, about Nick's life and death. Proceeds of the book, which reached the New York Times NonFiction Bestseller List[14] were used to found the Nick Traina Foundation, which Steel runs, to fund organizations dedicated to treating mental illness.[16] To gain more recognition for children's mental illnesses, Steel has lobbied for legislation in Washington, holds an annual fundraiser (known as The Star Ball) in San Francisco,[12] and serves on the Advisory Council of the Center for the Advancement of Children's Mental Health at Columbia University.[17] Nicholas John Steel Traina (May 1, 1978 - September 20, 1997) was an American singer who for a time was a member of the punk rock band Link 80. ...

1997 - Present

Steel married for a fifth time, to Silicon Valley financier Tom Perkins, but the marriage lasted less than two years, ending in 1999.[18] Steel has said that her novel The Klone and I was inspired by a private joke between herself and Perkins.[19] In 2006, Perkins dedicated his novel Sex and the Single Zillionaire to Steel. Thomas James Perkins (Born 1932), American businessman, capitalist, and was one of the founders of leading venture capital firm Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers. ...


After years of near-constant writing, Steel took a four month break in 2003 to open an art gallery in San Francisco, where she lives. The Steel Gallery of Contemporary Art exhibits the paintings and sculptures of emerging artists, especially those whose work Steel collects.[20]


In 2006 Steel reached an agreement with Elizabeth Arden to launch a new perfume, called "Danielle by Danielle Steel." The new fragrance, made of mandarin, jasmine, orchid, rose, amber, and musk scents, is available only in select stores. The target audience for the fragrance is readers of Steel's novels, and she believes that the new scent reflects her characters, saying "fragrances represent so many aspects of like that my characters experiences - commitment, love, and emotion."[21] Elizabeth Arden (1939) Elizabeth Arden (December 31, 1878 - October 18, 1966) was a Canadian businesswoman who built a cosmetics empire in the United States. ...


Steel lives in San Francisco,[20] but also maintains a residence in France where she spends several months of each year and a beach house in La Californie near St. Tropez.[1] Despite her public image and varied pursuits, Steel is known to be shy[20] and because of that and her desire to protect her children from the tabloids[1], she rarely grants interviews or public appearances.[22]


Writing

Going Home

Steel's novels have been translated into 28 languages and can be found in 47 countries across the globe.[9] The books, often described as "formulaic,"[23] tend to involve the characters in a crisis of some sort which threatens their relationship. Many of her characters are considered over-the-top, making her books seem less realistic.[24] The novels frequently "[explore] the world of the rich and famous."[23] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ... Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...


Despite a reputation among critics for writing "fluff," Steel's novels often delve into less savory aspects of human nature, including incest, suicide, divorce, war, and even the Holocaust.[9] As time has progressed, Steel's writing has evolved. Her later heroines tend to be stronger and more authoritative, who, if they do not receive the level of respect and attention they desire from a man, move on to a new relationship.[7] In recent years Steel has also been willing to take more risks with her plots. Ransom focuses more on suspense than romance, and follows three sets of seemingly unconnected characters as their lives begin to intersect.[25] Toxic Bachelors departs from her usual style by telling the story through the eyes of the three title characters, men who discover their true loves.[23] “Shoah” redirects here. ...


Steel has been criticized for making her books overly redundant and detailed,[26] explicitly telling the story to readers instead of showing it to them. This sometimes has the effect of making the readers feel like they are on the outside looking in rather than living the story.[27]


To avoid comparisons to her previous novels, Steel does not write sequels.[4] Although many of her earliest books were released with initial print runs of 1 million copies, by 2004 her publisher had decreased the number of books initially printed to 650,000.[28]


Twenty-two of her books have been adapted for television[29], including two that have received Golden Globe nominations. One is "Jewels", the story of the survival of a woman and her children in World War II Europe, and the family's eventual rebirth as one of the greatest jewelry houses in Europe.[9] In the late 1990s, Steel refused to sell the film rights to her novels to companies that intended to market them for television, preferring to work towards a film contract. Columbia Pictures was the first movie studio to offer for one of her novels, purchasing the rights to The Ghost in 1998.[29] Steel reversed course in 2005, reaching an agreement with New Line Home Entertainment to sell the film rights to 30 of her novels. New Line is expected to adapt the books as television movies or for the direct-to-video market.[30] The Golden Globe Awards are American awards for motion pictures and television programs, given out each year during a formal dinner. ...

In 2002, Steel was decorated by the French government as a "Chevalier" of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, for her contributions to world culture.[9] The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Literature) is an Order of France, established on May 2, 1957 by the Minister of Culture, and confirmed as part of lOrdre National du Mérite by President Charles de Gaulle in 1963. ...
