Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Alexandra Ripley
(1934-____) born on
Jan 8
US novelist. "She was chosen by Margaret Mitchell' s estate, 1988 to write the sequel to "Gone with the Wind;" called "Scarlett," 1991."

Books have become products like cereal or perfume or deodorant.

""We're not home-and-hearth people. We're the adventurers, the buccaneers, the blockade runners. Without challenge, we're only half alive.""
"I really don't know why Scarlett has such appeal. When I began writing the sequel, I had a lot of trouble because Scarlett is not my kind of person. She's virtually illiterate, has no taste, never learns from her mistakes."
[The publishers] wanted some kind of book that lands on the best-seller list again and again. They didn't understand that it doesn't have to be a Rosemary Rogers or a Danielle Steel. It has to be more 'Gone With The Wind.'
