Author Info
Sidney Sheldon
Sidney Sheldon left Chicago when he was 17 to pursue his dream of becoming a screenwriter in Los Angeles. After several years working as a reader and selling a few scripts, Sheldon joined the Air Force during World War II. After the war, Sheldon wrote a string of successful musicals in New York, winning a Tony Award for "Redhead" and simultaneously sending three hit musicals to Broadway at the age of only 24. He then returned to Hollywood, where he began writing popular films. He won an Academy Award for "The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer", starring Cary Grant. Other writing credits for the big screen include "Annie Get Your Gun", "Jumbo", and "Anything Goes." He left MGM to write for television, scripting 78 episodes of "The Patty Duke Show" in only two years. He also created and wrote the popular series "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Hart to Hart." At the age of 50, Sheldon wrote his first novel, "The Naked Face", both a critical and popular success. He followed this debut with numerous bestsellers, many of them gritty, suspenseful thrillers that often drew the ire of book-burning conservatives like the Reverend Jerry Falwell. Sheldon is a national spokesperson for the Freedom to Read Foundation and Libraries for the Future, as well as a philanthropic supporter of many literary and homeless charities. His wife of 30 years, Jorja, died in 1985. Their only child, Mary, is also a successful writer and novelist. Sheldon married Alexandra Kostoff, an advertising executive and former child actress, in 1989.
