"Aside from sales, the letters from readers have been primarily positive."
"The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge."Jean M. Auel on Albert Einstein
"I do believe we're all connected. I do believe in positive energy. I do believe in the power of prayer. I do believe in putting good out into the world. And I believe in taking care of each other."Jean M. Auel on Harvey Fierstein
"Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results."Jean M. Auel on Willie Nelson
"Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will."Jean M. Auel on Zig Ziglar
"If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes."Jean M. Auel on John Wooden
"I have been a reader of Science Fiction and Fantasy for a long time, since I was 11 or 12 I think, so I understand it and I'm not at all surprised that readers of the genre might enjoy my books."
"Of the two, I would think of my work as closer to Science Fiction than Fantasy."
"Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it's the science of prehistory - palaeontology and archaeology - rather than astronomy or physics."
"I have heard Science Fiction and Fantasy referred to as the fiction of ideas, and I like that definition, but it's the mainstream public that chooses my books for the most part."
"My fiction is reviewed by the mainstream press, by science fiction periodicals, romance magazines, small press publications and various other journals, including some usually devoted to archaeological and other science material."
