I enjoyed the larger than life characters and the plot's twists. Sidney Sheldon was one of my favorite authors and I'm sad I won't be able to read any new books by him.
Over ten years ago, when I wrote feature stories for the Daily Herald, I interviewed Sidney at a local Barnes and Noble book signing upon the release of his mystery, The Sky is Falling.
You would never guess he was a star in his own right, not only the sixth best selling writer of all time, but also the creator, producer and writer of The Patty Duke Show and I Dream of Jeannie, after writing for Broadway. He was very gracious. When we spoke of his writing methods he mentioned he liked to dictate the words to his assistant, then would read it all back. It worked for him, but I'd have trouble keeping track that way.
I'm so grateful for my computer. I would hate to write my manuscripts in longhand, much less use a typewriter and have to try and get it all perfect.
What method do you use for writing? Or, maybe you'd like to share a meeting with a famous author you've met.
