Harold Robbins (May 21, 1916 – October 14, 1997) was one of the best-selling American authors of all time. During his career, he wrote over 25 best-sellers, selling over 750 million copies in 32 languages.

Born as Harold Rubin in New York City, he later claimed to be a Jewish orphan who had been raised in a Catholic boys home. In reality he was the son of well-educated Russian and Polish immigrants. He was reared by his pharmacist father and stepmother in Brooklyn, New York City, New York.

During the 1930s and 1940s he did different jobs and got into sugar futures, making a lot of money until he was wiped out in the wake of World War II. After the war, he went to work for Universal Pictures in New York as a shipping clerk. While on this job and taking a bet from a co-worker, he began writing.
