In full: "How did you ever find the Snoopy cartoon that I was talking about? Anyway, I am glad that you were able to get it to me, and I am enclosing a few lines about writing. I hope they are satisfactory. Thank you for asking me. Warm regards". American author and director Sidney Sheldon (1917-2007) began his career as a radio joke writer before going to Hollywood, where he wrote his first credited screenplay, Mr. District Attorney and the Carter Case, in 1941. The following year, he had three hits on Broadway. In 1947, Sheldon won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer (1947). Sheldon then won two Tony Awards for the 1959 musical, Redhead. Becoming a director and producer, he created such memorable shows as I Dream of Jeannie (1965-1970) and Hart to Hart (1980-1984). Sheldon also became a best-selling author, beginning with his debut novel, The Naked Face (1969), which won the Edgar Allan Poe Award. Other best sellers followed, including The Other Side of Midnight (1974), The Stranger in the Mirror (1975), Bloodline (1977) and Rage of Angels (1980). His 18 novels have sold over 300 million copies, and many have been made into feature films or made-for-TV movies or miniseries. Sheldon's autobiography, The Other Side of Me, was released in November 2005. Prolific author Barnaby Conrad (b. 1922), who founded the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in 1973 and ran it for over 30 years, edited Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life, a collection of short essays on the writing craft contributed by successful authors, Sheldon included, illustrated with Charles Schultz Peanuts cartoons showing his beagle Snoopy at work at his keyboard.
