Danielle Steel Biography

Danielle Steel was born Danielle Fernandes Dominique Schuelein-Steel in New York City, the only child of Norma da Câmara Stone dos Reis and John Schulein-Steel. Danielle Steel father was a German Jewish immigrant, a descendant of owners of Löwenbräu beer. Danielle Steel mother, born in Portugal, was the daughter of a diplomat.

Danielle Steel was raised Catholic and had wanted to be a nun during her early years. Danielle Steel spent much of her childhood in France, 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. Danielle Steel parents divorced when she was eight, and she was raised primarily by her father, rarely seeing her mother.

Danielle Steel started writing stories as a child, and by her late teens had begun writing poetry. A 1963 graduate of the Lycée Français de New York, she studied literature design and fashion design, first at Parsons School of Design and then at New York University.

In 1965, when she was 18, Danielle Steel married French-American banker Claude-Eric Lazard. While a young wife, and still attending New York University, Steel began writing, completing her first manuscript at the age of 19.

After the birth of their daughter Beatrix, Steel worked for a public-relations agency in New York called Supergirls. A magazine client was impressed with her freelance articles and encouraged her to focus on writing and suggested she write a book, which she did. Danielle Steel later moved to San Francisco, and worked as a copywriter for Grey Advertising.

After nine years of marriage, Danielle Steel and Lazard divorced. In 1972 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 human relationships. The heroine of Going Home was a divorced single mother.

While still married to Lazard, Danielle Steel met Danny Zugelder while interviewing an inmate in a prison near Lompoc, California, where Zugelder was also incarcerated. He moved in with Steel when he was paroled in June 1973, but returned to prison in early 1974 on robbery and rape charges.

After receiving her divorce from Lazard in 1975, Danielle Steel married Zugelder in the prison canteen. Danielle Steel divorced him in 1978, but the relationship spawned Passion’s Promise and Now and Forever, the two novels that launched her career.

Danielle 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, Danielle Steel has authored the “Freddie” series. These four books address other real life situations: first night away from home, trip to the doctor, etc.

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. Danielle Steel is a prolific author, often releasing several books per year.

Each book takes 2½ years to complete, so Danielle 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.
