Nicholas Sparks: It is your life
You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
Nicholas Charles Sparks (born December 31, 1965) is an American writer and novelist. He has published eighteen versions of the same book and two non-fiction books. Several of his novels have become international bestsellers, and ten of his romantic-drama novels have been adapted to film with multimillion-dollar box office grosses; however, none of the film adaptations have been critically well received.
