About (Profile/Biography):
Harold Robbins was born on May 21, 1916 and died on October 14, 1997. His popular novels were written by an American author who was a prolific writer. In his lifetime, he authored over 25 best-sellers, over 750 million copies in 32 languages, and was one of the most successful authors of all time. A few years later, Robbins made a false claim that he had been raised in a Catholic boys' home as an orphaned Jewish boy. He was raised in Brooklyn instead by his father, who was a pharmacist, and by his stepmother, Blanche, who was a housewife.

In 1948, he published Never Love a Stranger, which was his first book. 
In The Dream Merchants (1949), one of Robbins' first novels, he combined his own experiences with history, melodrama, sex, and glossy high society to grow a fast-paced story that focuses on the American film industry, from its beginning through to the sound era.
King Creole is a 1958 motion picture based on his 1952 novel, A Stone for Danny Fisher, and it starred Elvis Presley in the lead role.
In addition to his best-known novels, he has written a number of short stories and plays based on his experiences. 
During the summer of 1989, Robbins was involved in a literary controversy when the trade journal Publishers Weekly drew his attention.
