Meet the Author

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestselling futuristic suspense series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 400 million copies of her books in print.

Biography

Not only has Nora Roberts written more bestsellers than anyone else in the world (according to Publishers Weekly), she’s also created a hybrid genre of her own: the futuristic detective romance. And that’s on top of mastering every subgenre in the romance pie: the family saga, the historical, the suspense novel. But this most prolific and versatile of authors might never have tapped into her native talent if it hadn't been for one fateful snowstorm.

As her fans well know, in 1979 a blizzard trapped Roberts at home for a week with two bored little kids and a dwindling supply of chocolate. To maintain her sanity, Roberts started scribbling a story -- a romance novel like the Harlequin paperbacks she'd recently begun reading. The resulting manuscript was rejected by Harlequin, but that didn't matter to Roberts. She was hooked on writing. Several rejected manuscripts later, her first book was accepted for publication by Silhouette.

For several years, Roberts wrote category romances for Silhouette -- short books written to the publisher's specifications for length, subject matter and style, and marketed as part of a series of similar books. Roberts has said she never found the form restrictive. "If you write in category, you write knowing there's a framework, there are reader expectations," she explained. "If this doesn't suit you, you shouldn't write it. I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure."

Roberts never violated the reader's expectations, but she did show a gift for bringing something fresh to the romance formula. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred (1981), had as its heroine a strong-willed horse groom, in contrast to the fluttering young nurses and secretaries who populated most romances at the time. But Roberts's books didn't make significant waves until 1985, when she published Playing the Odds, which introduced the MacGregor clan. It was the first bestseller of many.

Roberts soon made a name for herself as a writer of spellbinding multigenerational sagas, creating families like the Scottish MacGregors, the Irish Donovans and the Ukrainian Stanislaskis. She also began working on romantic suspense novels, in which the love story unfolds beneath a looming threat of violence or disaster. She grew so prolific that she outstripped her publishers' ability to print and market Nora Roberts books, so she created an alter ego, J.D. Robb. Under the pseudonym, she began writing romantic detective novels set in the future. By then, millions of readers had discovered what Publishers Weekly called her "immeasurable diversity and talent."

Although the style and substance of her books has grown, Roberts remains loyal to the genre that launched her career. As she says, "The romance novel at its core celebrates that rush of emotions you have when you are falling in love, and it's a lovely thing to relive those feelings through a book."

Good To Know

Roberts still lives in the same Maryland house she occupied when she first started writing -- though her carpenter husband has built on some additions. She and her husband also own Turn the Page Bookstore Café in Boonsboro, Maryland. When Roberts isn't busy writing, she likes to drop by the store, which specializes in Civil War titles as well as autographed copies of her own books.

Roberts sued fellow writer Janet Dailey in 1997, accusing her of plagiarizing numerous passages of her work over a period of years. Dailey paid a settlement and publicly apologized, blaming stress and a psychological disorder for her misconduct.

    About Older Nora Roberts titles

    What many readers do not know about Nora's older titles is that she no longer owns the rights to the ones published under previously Harlequin/Silhouette label now I believe they are being aggressively republished many times by Penguin Group. If you want to know if you really have a new title....look on the front cover. New titles always display the NR mongram indicating that its a new title "FIRST TIME IN PRINT". She knows that they do this so she tried to give readers another way to identify her new vs old titles. HOPE THIS HELPS A LOT OF READERS who love her work.

    Never

    I never thought I would give a Nora Roberts book only two stars, but I could not give it any more than that. I realize it is an early book of hers, but it is just not very well written. All her other books that I have read are great. This one is not. Good thing she gets better with time isn't it?

    Rating sample only

    This is the reason I keep my Kindle. At least I get the whole first chapter as a sample there. BN needs to work on the Nook samples. This one was only 4 pages and those pages were only the title page and then the list of Nora's books! No text for the story at all!

    BOOK SAMPLE!!!!! 0 stars ~~~NOVEL, I DON'T KNOW YET!

    Storm of Fire (Part 14)

    Hey!! Sorry I took so long but Im in Costa Rica and it's hard to get Wifi. It is so warm here and we go swimming everyday!! You suckers are stuck in the U.S. hahaha!! Anyways, I hope you had a happy New Year! I sure did here in the tropics haha!! Okay enough chat. Part 15 will be at sisters grimm book one. Also I may be doing a hunger games fanfic if you guys want me to. Also Aleca, I will be bringing your character back in soon- Meg looked up at me, shocked! Her shock soon turned to anger! "What do you mean it's my fault your mother's dead?!! I saved your life back there and you start hitting me?!! You're a stuck up brat!" She said in furie. Then she turned to stomp away but I wasn't through with her yet. "ME STUCK UP? YOU'RE SO FULL OF YOURSELF AND YOU CAN'T EVEN KILL A MONSTER WITHOUT AN AMATURES HELP!" I spit at her. She whipped around and started shouting, "AMMATURE? AMMATURE? YOU'RE LESS THAN AN AMMATURE YOU DISGUSTING PIECE OF DOG FILTH!!! I SAVED YOU AND YOUR SISTERS LIFE AND THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS START SAYING HOW MUCH BETTER YOU ARE THAN ME!! SHOW A LITTLE RESPECT!" "RESPECT FOR YOU?!!" I screamed lunging at her trying to scrap her face. She intersepted me and smacked as hard as she could. I crumpled to the ground holding my cheek. "Keep your emerald!" I said and chucked it at her. It hit her in the nose and she started bleeding. "Guys!" Maddie said sounding panicky. "We should get to camp!!" "Fine." Meg said and marched off holding her nose. Maddie ran after her nervously. I walked quickly looking straight ahead, not saying a word. Next to me was Poppy, her face in her hands crying. I have hated Meg stem since then- Sorry it waas so short guys!

    LOVED IT!!!!

    This was a very good story. I have the book Dangerous and that has this story in it. I could feel Autumn's pain over being near Lucas McLean again. Nora really knows how to make her readers feel what her characters feel. I can actually relate to what Autumn feels at seeing Lucas again. I feel the same way. A really good story. I recomend it to my friends and everyone.
