12/9/19, On The Move


Hi Everyone,


I hope that you’re busy and having fun, and that the holidays hold a happy promise for you, and you can see good times ahead!!!


Two weeks before Christmas, and I feel a bit like I’ve been shot out of a cannon, and haven’t landed yet. I appeared on Good Morning America last week, with Robin Roberts, who is one of my favorite people in the world. I did a magazine interview, and recorded a French radio show at the end of the week, which was interesting and fun, with some very good questions. It was a long interview, for an hour. And in between, I tried to tie up the last loose ends for Christmas. Two long plane flights in the midst of it all, a visit from one of my daughters, and racing around with her. A Christmas dinner with my Godchildren, who are a joy in my life. The youngest made me a beautiful pen holder for my desk, painted royal blue. We had a pasta dinner, and tiramisu for dessert!!! I’ve been in three cities in two countries in the last week. It’s whirlwind time, while I try to keep up with emails and desk work. I’m not working on a book this week, so I can get our holiday organized. And I even managed to have lunch with a good friend.


Have you checked out my Instagram yet at ‘officialdaniellesteel’? It’s still new to me, I’ve been doing it for three months, and have really enjoyed it. I hope you like it too!!! I hope you check it out and think it’s fun.


It’s been freezing cold everywhere I’ve been, and we even had some snow in New York, but it didn’t last long.


And my new book “Spy” has been out for 2 weeks, and I really hope you will read it when you have time. I hope you’ll think it will make a great gift to the people on your holiday list!!! It’s a book that both men and women will enjoy, about a British female spy, it covers 30 years of her career in a multitude of exotic places, with some very close calls and harrowing events. It’s a historical novel, and the story about the characters is woven in with important moments in real history.


It looks like it’s going to be a busy week ahead too. It’s hard to believe that the holidays are already here, and even though I’m always proud of how organized I am, there is always more to do!!!



Take good care, and have a great week!!!


love, Danielle

    Dear Ms. Steel,

    I have been an fan of yours since 1978, I was in the 7th grade. I have been reading your books ever since.

    I would like to know if there is any possible way that I may have a signed photo autograph from you. I am willing to pay for it and all.

    I can’t tell you how I enjoy reading your books and always looking forward to your new ones!!

    I have most of your books and I look for your books that I don’t have to add to my collection.

    I thank you for taking the time in reading my email. And if a signed phot autograph is not possible, I understand.

    A fan for life,

    Linda D. Escobar
