In 1994, rejected by both publishers and law schools, Nicholas Sparks was a job-jumping salesman who wrote in the evenings. In early 1995, and against all odds, his manuscript was discovered in the slush pile. By October, Warner Books famously paid a million dollars for an unknown story about a notebook. The rest, as they say, is history.
Now with almost 80 million copies of his books in print, literary sensation Nicholas Sparks is the author of sixteen New York Times #1 bestselling books and is a cultural phenomenon in his own right.
