Episode Description

She is the queen of romantic fiction but parts of her real-life story could have been made into a movie. She had a lonely childhood, and later in life multiple miscarriages, marriages to not one but two convicted felons--one of whom she met and married in prison--and the loss of her son to suicide. Her professional story, though, has been one of unprecedented success. From an education in New York and Europe and a background in public relations and advertising, Ms. Steel turned to writing in the early 1970s. She wrote her first book at 20; her fourth was a bestseller and she has been a fixture on bestseller-lists ever since.
