Queen of Romance:
Nora Roberts currently has 145 million books in print.
In last year's USA Today Best Seller list Nora Roberts was the second most read author after JK Rowling.

She has written 145 books to date and totted up a total of 69 New York Times Best Sellers.

She writes romantic fiction and also pens suspense novels under the name, J D Robb.


"Face the Fire" (ISBN 074993298 8) and "Three Fates" (ISBN 0 7499 3304 6) are published today by Piatkus.

"Three Fates"

A novel set in modern day New York, Prague and Ireland. It unfolds the romantic adventures of three women: a scholar, a stripper and a security expert who eventually come together to solve the mystery of three priceless missing statues.

"Face the Fire"

The concluding book to the 'Three Sisters Island' trilogy. It tells the story of Mia Devlin who's old flame, Sam Logan suddenly reappears in her life after leaving Three Sisters Island - and Mia - several years earlier. Mia at first refuses to admit she still has feelings for her old lover, but an age old curse finally brings them back together.

Nora Roberts currently has 145 million books in print and last year appeared on the New York Times list every week but one.

Forever in the US papers under 'Bestseller' the Washington Post describes her as the 'top of the pyramid' of romance writers.

Despite this, Nora still struggles to get recognition from anyone outside the world of romantic novels.
