"It's not for the money that I write. I wouldn't know what else to do with my life. Writing novels is my greatest challenge--it's 100 percent me. I don't have actors telling me they can't deliver certain lines or a director who doesn't like the mountain setting but prefers the valley. . . ." --Sheldon to George Christy in THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, September 20-22, 1996
Sheldon is a part-owner and major investor in Dove Books and Dove Audio. Dove Books became nationally known in 1994 when it published Faye Resnick's recollections of Nicole Brown and O J Simpson and then subsequent memoirs of Simpson trial jurors and others.
Sheldon has often been interviewed on TV magazine shows and is usually asked how he writes. The answer: he dictates to an assistant who takes shorthand, then transcribes the result into typed pages he reviews.
Sheldon was inducted into the "Guiness Book of World Records" as the most translated author in the world.
