Before They Were Stars: Steve Berry, Brent Hartinger and More

For years, WD has brought you profiles of hardworking writers making their publishing debuts in First Impressions. Formerly known as First Success, the column is perhaps more accurately named today—after all, getting published does not necessarily guarantee success. But those with strong, solid books—and platforms to match—are better equipped for the climb. We chose a few noteworthy subjects to revisit now, years later, to find out what they did right, what they’ve learned and what they wish they’d known all along. The following are special web-exclusive expanded versions of the profiles that appeared in the May/June 2009 issue of WD:
