In 1994, rejected from 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 $1 million 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 17 New York Times No. 1 bestselling books and a cultural phenomenon in his own right.
