    About Fern Michaels


    1. Fern Michaels isn t a person I m not sure she s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence Fern Michaels is what I DO Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I was born because according to him I was a dinky little thing weighing in at four and a half pounds However, I answer to Fern since people are comfortable with a name they can pronounce.As they say, the past is prologue I grew up, got a job, got married, had five kids When my youngest went off to Kindergarten, my husband told me to get off my ass and get a job Those were his exact words I didn t know how to do anything except be a wife and mother I was also a voracious reader having cut my teeth on The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Cherry Ames and the like The library was a magical place for me It still is to this day Rather than face the outside world with no skills, I decided to write a book For some reason that didn t intimidate me As my husband said at the time, stupid is as stupid does Guess what, I don t have that husband any Guess what else I wrote 99 books, most of them New York Times Best Sellers.Moving right along here Several years ago I left Ballantine Books, parted company with my agent, sold my house in New Jersey that I had lived in all my married life and in 1993 moved to South Carolina I figured if I was going to go through trauma let it be all at one time It was a breeze The kids were all on their own at that point The dump was a 300 year old plantation house that is listed in the National Registry that I remodeled Today it is beyond belief as are the gardens and the equally old Angel Oaks that drip Spanish moss Unfortunately, I could not get my ghost to relocate This ghost has been documented by previous owners Mary Margaret as we call her, is a friendly She is also mischievous It took me two weeks to figure out that she didn t like my coffee cups They would slide off the table or counter or else they d break in the dishwasher I bought red checkered ones All are intact as of this writing She moves pillows from one room to the other and she stops all the clocks in the house at 9 10 in the a.m at least once a week When the Azaleas are in bloom, and only then, I find blooms on my night stand I have this glorious front porch and during the warm months I see my swing moving early in the morning when the air is still and again late in the day She doesn t spook the dogs I always know when she s around because the five of them line up and look like they re at a tennis match As of this writing we re co habiting nicely.Most writers love what they do and I m no exception I love it when I get a germ of an idea and get it down on paper I love breathing life into my characters I love writing about women who persevere and prevail because that s what I had to do to get to this point in time It s another way of saying it doesn t matter where you ve been, what matters is where you re going and how you get there The day I finally prevailed was the day I was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame For me it was an awesome day and there are no words to describe it.I ve been telling stories and scribbling for 37 years I hope I can continue for another 37 years It wasn t easy during some of those years As I said, I had to persevere My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot She said when God is good to you, you have to give back For a while I didn t know how to do that When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels Foundation READ FERN MICHAELS FULL BIOGRAPHY HERE fernmichaels biography

    1. Eleventh in the Sisterhood series; fourth in the Rules of the Game series. The story is, as usual, set in Washington D.C. and is another outside job contracted with the vigilantes.The StoryThe girls are getting bored. Again. Then Charles pops up with a "dicey" job. Seems both the Republicans and Democrats lost their donor lists with all their identities. The Republicans are promising a presidential pardon to the ladies but without guarantees.The ladies just ain't that stupid and they decide to g [...]

    2. This is the first book by fern Michaels I've read. Totally out order in the series but it was a good read. Do not have a good sense of who the individuals are in the vigilantes but it will likely get better as I read more books of the series.

    3. The sisters were brilliant The little troop keeps growing and the deeds are getting more dangerous! If you haven't started this series, I strongly suggest you read them in order. I somehow managed to get out of order and now am backtracking. Enjoy the ride!

    4. This series just keeps delivering. And this book did again. I so enjoyed the cast of characters and we get to catch up on how some of the people from past stories are doing. The "good guys" that is because the villains are pretty much living out their punishments. Plenty of twists, turns and surprises; just the way I like it. It's also been fun to see some romances for a few of the Sisters developing. Nikki and Jack. Harry and Yoko. Kathryn and Bert. They catch time together any way that they ca [...]

    5. Both political parties are stunned when their top secret fundraising lists of donors are stolen. The Democrats and the Republicans ask the Sisterhood to investigate the hacker who stole their lists. However, the Sisterhood is divided as to who to assist. The Dems offer a lot of cash while the GOP offer presidential pardon. One thing the team shares in common is not to trust either party. They have their extended operatives conduct some serendipitous investigations to see if this is a stunt to ca [...]

    6. Sisterhood #11I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you've read previous sisterhood novels then why not continue?Overall not as exciting as some of the others. However on a good note we do meet up with previous characters. Mrs. Paula Woodley and her husband come into contact with the Sisters again. The second string aka Nellie, Pearl, Lizze Fox, and Maggie all come back into the game.The Sisterhood gets an opportunity of a lifetime.a chance at a Presidental Pardon if they can discover wh [...]

    7. I am disappointed that the relationship between Myra and Charles has fallen by the wayside, I really enjoyed the sweetness of their talk and time together. I also am not sure about Annie yet, she doesn't really fill the void left by Julia. Annie is a lot on the goofy side. Trying to picture Charles doing a fist pump doesn't work for me. Otherwise the story is good and I did enjoy iam disappointed that the relationship between Myra and Charles has fallen by the wAyside I really enjoyed the sweetn [...]

    8. Another Sisterhood mystery (yes, it does stand alone too). This one is not to help a specific person but the sisterhood itself is on the line. The government or some specific person in the upper echelon's of the government is setting a trap for the group they call "The Vigilantes". An old friend of Nikki's is heading the FBI team to catch 'the vigilantes' and she is out to score. I found that Erin Powell had the biggest chip on her shoulder. Wow, what an attitude.As usual The Sisterhood members [...]

    9. . One of the “Sisterhood” of Vigilantes novels that is difficult to understand if you don’t know who the Vigilantes are and why they are in existence. These women are bright, rich, and ruthless. They were all “done wrong” in the past and work together to “get even.” This time they are involved with a presidential campaign and hope to win pardons for their crimes. I didn’t like the book but part of this was that I hadn't read the previous ones and didn't understand what started th [...]

    10. I get frustrated at myself every time I read one of Fern Michaels' books. They are so schlocky, it's not even truly brain candy, since it's just sooo bad. Her characters are either very, very good or very, very bad and not much in between. I don't know why I go back to them, except that they come so highly recommended to me by a true fan. And of course, it's interesting to find out what's happening with her characters. I always swear that I won't read another, but I may change my mind if I want [...]

    11. Sisterhood series. Love this series!A presidential pardon was offered and tempting. I have read so many books in this series that it is like visiting old friends in each new book I read. This book had lots of intriguing moments and I enjoyed it. I especially loved seeing what happened to the man that abused his wife-my kind of justice!I have just started reading another book in this series (and have 2 more in line to be read-although I may have read those already).

    12. For me this was probably the most boring book of the series. The description on the cover made it seem like there would be a lot of discord between the sisters and I really didn't find that at all. The mission itself was pretty ho-hum but it was nice to hear from the Woodley's again (or at least Paula Woodley). It was an okay book but not boring enough to turn me off from the series.

    13. #11 in the series is probably the best written in the series. The author isn't as stilted and old-fashioned in her language but there are still inconsistencies between the books. They aren't obvious, though, unless one is familiar with the back stories. The plot is a bit more conceivable, a bit more believable but still If you haven't anything else to read, read it.

    14. I liked this one better than the last few books, although it did bother me that they had the national security advisor be part of this book and it showed how much damage they had done to him and how much his wife enjoyed it. It was just a bit extreme for me. I did kind of like that they reviewed each case though.

    15. I'm so glad my friend Sandi turned me on to this series. The first couple books I was iffy about. But the farther I get in the series, the more I like them, even in spite of the silliness they sometimes have and how totally unbeleivable they are. They ARE pure entertainment and that's why I read after all.

    16. I like these books, but they get a little too violent for me sometimes. But still, I like the fact that these women take on injustice. I think we would all like to see the "wrongs" people do come back to bite them in the patoot. I know it isn't realistic AT ALL. But I like strong women, like Buffy TVS and even the Charmed ones. LOL Might not be "acceptable" to the very religious.

    17. I really liked these books when I started reading themw if you need something to read and don't mind the same story line over and over, then may I suggest one of these books from the sisterhood. I think this would be a good hangover book

    18. Enjoyable, but not as good as some of the others. I felt the storyline of this one left you hanging. However, I am already reading the next book in the series. That is the good thing about starting a series after numerous books have been written.

    19. This was the first book I've read by Fern Michaels-I always assumed she only wrote romance? The book covers threw me, I think.At any rate, this was a good read, though sometimes I would get confused due to the amount of characters. Good look at the other side of justice.

    21. I stopped reading due getting hooked on Reading JT Ellison's Samantha Owens and Taylor Jackson series. Returned to the book, less than half way through when stopped, and finished it. Rated it 3.5, it was ok but lacked believability and pacing was slow.

    22. Interesting premise. Liked that several characters are back in full force. Felt sorry for the female character who is the fall guy in this story. Liked that we go back over some of why the women are together. Will be interesting to see where this storyline goes next.

    23. Always enjoy the sisterhood series. I still think that the first 7 books were the best, but Fern you definitely know how to keep it going and interesting. Looking forward to catching up with the sisterhoods.

    24. The Sisterhood have been offered two jobs - one with a great paycheck, the other a presidential pardon and come out of hiding. This was one of Fern Michaels at her best. Fast paced and a great read!

    26. So far I have loved the series. This one was a little more difficult to follow. I liked the original setting of Myra's house with Charles and the girls. I still don't know why the guys didn't disguise themselves. It seemed a little sloppy. On to #12.

    27. I liked this book. I didn't realize it was part of a series until I was done. It didn't make much sense along the way and I kept thinking there should be more to the story. I didn't like the ending. It was to short. I like it better when the ending ties everything together.

    28. I so love these books!!! This was another great one -- this explored the great Lizzie and her character is so wonderful!!! Myra and Annie are so funny!!! I will be very sad the day that the Sisterhood shuts down. Enjoy these ladies!!!

    29. By number 4 of a series, the characters are familiar to the readers. Unfortunately, this book does not advance the characters. As usual, plot requires you to suspend belief, but it's still an easy and enjoyable quick read.

    30. Laural Merlington reads this series and is excellent. The Sisterhood story lines are about equalizing injustice for women. They are creative and funny in a gape-mouthed way with characters you grow to love.
