Sandra Brown


USA (1948 - )

aka Laura Jordan, Rachel Ryan, Erin St. Claire

Sandra was born on March 12, 1948 in Waco, Texas and raised in Ft. Worth. She is nothing if not serious when it comes to her work. As the oldest of five daughters, she was a responsible and mature girl, and always chose to read a book rather than play with dolls. Her responsible nature stayed with Sandra as she graduated from Texas Christian University with adegree in English, and in her job as a contributing feature reporter at the nationally syndicated PM Magazine in Dallas. When the show experienced masslayoffs, however, Sandra found herself out of work.

She married Michael Brown, former television anchorman and award-winningdocumentarian of Dust to Dust, and returned to Ft. Worth. They had two children, Rachel and Ryan. Though she continued in her occasionalposition as a showroom model in Dallas, her husband encouraged her to try fiction writing while their children were at school. He had just left a career as a news anchor and talk-show host to form his own productioncompany, so why shouldn't she take a creative risk, too?

Within a year Sandra sold her first novel, Love's Encore, under the name Rachel Ryan (taken from the first names of her two children). Soonthereafter, she was producing a succession of books for six different publishers, culling ideas from briefs in USA Today, television shows, andher own active imagination. She wrote two books as Laura Jordan and several books for Harlequin under the name Erin St. Claire.

Since the publication of her first novel in 1981, she has penned well over sixty books. Sandra has over fifty million copies of her books in print, andhas achieved some major feats on what is perhaps the most highly regardedbestseller list of all--that of the New York Times. Since 1990, every one ofSandra's novels has appeared on the list. In total, her books have appearedon the prestigious list over thirty times.

In 1992 her novel "French Silk" was made into an ABC-TV movie.
