Why I love...Nora Roberts!
If you read romance, any romance, the likelihood is you heard of Nora Roberts. She is the undisputed queen of romance in the States and makes a pretty good dent in the market here in the UK too.
Nora is now a huge inspiration to me - not just because of the fantastic books she writes, but also how prolifically she writes. She has written well over 100 novels and still going strong by producing at least two or three books per year.
How I found Nora is a story in itself.
In 2005 I attended the awesome Hay Literary Festival. If you haven't visited the gorgeous town of Hay on Wye in Wales - book a date this year! The festival is in May, but all year Hay is a bibliophile's paradise. I doubt you will find so many books in the same size area anywhere else. Shops, stalls and streets literally teeming with books. Heaven!
It wasn't until I got home and searched these authors that I realise they were one and the same - Nora Roberts is also J D Robb! Destiny? Me thinks so :D
I haven't stopped reading Nora/J D Robb since and estimate that I have read over 60 of her books...and still have plenty to go.
Great characters, great stories, great suspense and a lovely lady - that's why I love Nora Roberts!
