Fern Michaels is the USA Today and New York Times best-selling author of the Sisterhood, Men of the Sisterhood, and Godmothers series, as well as dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over 75 million copies of her books in print, and her novels are published in 20 languages.

With a career spanning over four decades, Fern is an internationally renowned author who’s built a life that reflects her work. She’s created a world filled with cherished family, beloved pets, and a peaceful, empowering environment. Surrounded by children, grandchildren, two dogs, and a cat, this former New Jerseyite now shares her 300-year-old South Carolina plantation home with a resident ghost named Mary Margaret.

“I like writing about families and strong women who find their niche in life, just the way I did,” says Fern. “I love writing about women who persevere and prevail because that’s what I had to do.”

A lover of animals, Fern’s charitable support has included buying bulletproof vests for law enforcement dogs. However, Fern doesn’t neglect humans when determining her philanthropy. She’s established the Fern Michaels Foundation, which grants four-year scholarships to needy, deserving students. She has also founded and continues to administer two family-run day care centers with affordable rates, set up specifically to meet the needs of single mothers.
