Danielle Steel

Writer Danielle Steel, who resides in the opulent Spreckels mansion in tony Pacific Heights, is most famous for penning melodramatic, guilty-pleasure romance novels with titles like Passion's Promise, Sunset in St. Tropez, and Five Days in Paris. But she also has a blog. It alternates between a record of her everyday life and her philosophical musings, and is written in a breathy, conversational tone punctuated with a surplus of exclamation points. To wit: "Okay, guess — what I am going to be this year? A fairy princess? Dracula? Little Bo Peep? Wonder Woman? NO!!!..... I'm going to be a whoopee cushion for Halloween." Steel writes about family feuds, buying a new Brussels Griffon (it's a kind of dog), Valentine's Day, and parties and auctions in Paris. It's a strange and dizzying foray into the mind of a very rich woman who rarely gives interviews. Whoopee!!!
