A BiographyeBook - 2012
Nora Roberts scoffs at spineless hero-ines ... 'Weak, passive people don't make good characters,' she says. She is equally brutal about needy men: 'If a man wants someone to take care of him, he should get a dog as a companion and live with his mother.' Washington Post It was a dark and stormy night - although it may not have been stormy or even dark, but the infamous blizzard of February 1979 was enough to lock Nora Roberts inside with her two young sons' board games and a rapidly decreasing supply of chocolate. For something new to do, she grabbed a tablet and began writing her first novel in longhand and voila, she had found what she was meant to do. By 1980 her first novel was published. From such humble beginnings, Nora Roberts today has written over 200 books, countless articles and stories and earns over $60 million each year. Not bad for a high school graduate with no formal college or writing training.
