About the author

Biography of Sparks, Nicholas

Nicholas Sparks was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on New Year's Eve, 1965. As a child, he lived in Minnesota, Los Angeles, and Grand Island, Nebraska, finally settling in Fair Oaks, California when he was eight. In 1984, he received a full scholarship to run track and field for the University of Notre Dame. Sparks wrote one of his best-known stories, The Notebook, over a period of six months at age 28. It was published in 1996 and spent 56 weeks on the New York Times hardcover best-seller list followed by another 54 weeks on the paperback list.

Sparks has had a string of New York Times bestsellers including: A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, The Rescue, A Bend in the Road, Nights in Rodanthe, The Guardian, The Wedding, True Believer and its sequel, At First Sight, Dear John, The Last Song, Safe Haven and The Best of Me. Safe Haven became his eighth film adaptation. Sparks is involved in many local and national charities, and is a major contributor to the Creative Writing Program (MFA) at the University of Notre Dame, where he provides scholarships, internships, and a fellowship annually. Along with his wife, he founded The Epiphany School in New Bern, North Carolina and the Nicholas Sparks Foundation.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-01-01)

This 14th novel from Sparks (www.-nicholassparks.com)-following The Lucky One (2008) and written as the basis of an April 2010 Disney film adaptation starring Miley Cyrus-is told from several points of view but centers mostly on gifted 17-year-old musician Ronnie. Ronnie resents her parents' divorce but learns much about love after spending an unforgettable summer with her father in Wilmington, NC. There is the requisite tearjerker plot twist, with Ronnie ultimately finding her way back to her music. Actors Pepper Binkley and Scott Sowers convincingly narrate the gender-appropriate chapters. Demand will be high for this title, sure to satisfy Sparks's many fans.
