Author Spotlight: Nora Roberts

Amazon Cover

Nora Roberts shook my world when I first read her. This happy Harlequin/Solitude style writer helped define Paranormal Romance – a genre which one can arguably say birthed Urban Fantasy. HER romances had witches and psychic powers, sharing shelf space with the typical millionaire romances.

Her books took up a shelf by the time I went off to college. I’ve since gone more into Urban Fantasy, as that genre has grown, and she has concentrated on her bread-and-butter market of traditional romance.

But every now-and-again, she brushes off her magic and reminds people that romance happens in all circumstances. If you haven’t looked her up in a while, you might want to read her Apocalypse series starting with Year One: Chronicles of The One.
