(front) Best Selling Novels: Flowers in the Attic; Petals on the Wind; If There be Thorns; My Sweet Audrina; Seeds of Yesterday; Heaven; Dark Angels.

(rear) Books opened doors I hadn't even realized were there. They took me up and out of myself, back into the past, forward into the future, put me on the moon, placed me in palaces, in jungles, everywhere. When finally I did reach London and Paris - - I'd been there before. When books fail to give me what I need, dreams supply the rest. A long time ago I dreamed I was rich and famous - - And I saw flowers growing in the attic. Dreams can come true, no matter what obstacles fate chooses to place as obstacles to hurdle, crawl under, or go around. Somehow I always manage to reach the far side. What else can I say? Have a goal and achieve it, despite everything is my only accomplishment. If I give a few million readers pleasure and escape along the way, I do the same for myself.—Yours, Virginia C. Andrews.
