4 Things You Didn't Know About Romance Novelists


A peek into the life of one of the most successful romance novelists, Nora Roberts.

4. She's a practical sort of romantic. Nora Roberts lives in a log house, is said to enjoy routine and be a romantic of the more practical sort. Collins reports that Roberts awakes at 6AM, is sitting at her computer in her log cabin by 8:00a.m. and writes for six to eight hours a day "fueling herself with Winston Filter 100s, Cheez-Its and Diet Pepsi," writes Collins. How Roberts met her husband, Bruce Wilder, does sound rather romantic, we must say, in that unexpected kind of way. The two met when he arrived at her home to build some bookshelves.
