With two grown children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage, her family, her life.
So when her husband of 24 years said they needed to talk, Paris couldn't imagine what he was about to say. Just like that, the husband she adored had dumped her for a younger woman, leaving Paris to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. Heading west to San Francisco, Paris discovers a world full of men too young, too old, too married, or too good to be true, and with her dating game score hovering between disappointing and disastrous - and her daughter now engaged to a man Paris' age - Paris determines that romance is not in her future.
After nine years of marriage and many years of separation, Steel and Lazard divorced.
In 1972 her first novel, Going Home, was published.
A magazine client was highly impressed with her freelance articles and encouraged her to focus on writing and suggested she write a book, which she did.
She later moved to San Francisco, and worked for Grey Advertising, as a copywriter.
These books, known as the "Max and Martha" series, aim to help children face real life problems: new baby, new school, loss of loved one, etc.
Steel was born Danielle Fernandes Dominique Schuelein-Steel in New York City, the only child of Norma da Câmara Stone dos Reis and John Schulein-Steel.
Her father was a German Jewish immigrant, a descendant of owners of Löwenbräu beer.
She divorced him in 1978, but the relationship spawned Passion's Promise and Now and Forever, the two novels that launched her career. With the success of her fourth book, The Promise, she became a participant in San Francisco high society while Toth, a former drug addict, was left out. Coincidentally, beginning with her marriage to Traina in 1981, Steel has been a near-permanent fixture on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestsellers lists.
In 1989, she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having a book on the New York Times Bestseller List for the most consecutive weeks of any author—381 consecutive weeks at that time.
In addition, Steel has authored the "Freddie" series.
