    I was late to the Sidney Sheldon party. Initially, I thought he was a woman, which is a problem because I kept confusing Sheldon with Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts. I avoided all three authors because they sounded overhyped. Every list of recommendations in my book club had to include at least one of them.

    I finally read Sheldon’s work because someone assured me that the author’s books had the best female characters in all of fiction. To their credit, they were right.

    After getting over the shock of finally seeing Sheldon’s picture and realizing that he was nothing like I expected, I made quick work of The Naked Face. A year later, I am still making my way through his bibliography.

    I’m glad I came to him late. Now, I can binge his work without having to wait for his latest books to come out.
