Steel’s latest novel, Until the End of Time debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list, and other recent best sellers include The Sins of the Mother, Friends Forever, Hotel Vendome, Happy Birthday, 44 Charles Street, Legacy, Family Ties, Big Girl, Southern Lights, One Day at a Time, A Good Woman, Rogue, Honor Thyself, Amazing Grace, Bungalow 2, Sisters, H.R.H., Coming Out, The House, and Ransom, all of which have leapt to the top of the Best Seller list, the Wall Street Journal list, and comparable best seller lists around the world.
Steel has written 128 books, including sixteen children’s books and four works of nonfiction – such as His Bright Light: The Story of Nick Traina, A Gift of Hope: Helping the Homeless, and Pure Joy: The Dogs We Love (in fall 2013) — and a book of poetry. She also founded and runs two foundations, one named in honor of her late son, The Nick Traina Foundation, which finances organizations involved in mental illness and child abuse, and the second established to assist the homeless. In 2002 Steel was decorated by the French government as an “Officier” of the distinguished Order of Arts and Letters, and she has written the lyrics for two albums currently being recorded in France. She is the mother of nine children.
Steel lives in San Francisco and Paris, which inspired many of the scenes in PRETTY MINNIE IN PARIS.
