Nora Roberts is a prolific American writer of romance and crime novels whose books have topped the bestseller lists since the mid-1990s. Roberts has been publishing romance novels since 1981, averaging more than half a dozen titles every year. She is especially known for family sagas in series form, and her 1985 novel Playing the Odds -- the first of several novels about the Irish MacGregor family -- proved she was capable of more than formula stories. Since then the success of her books has catapulted her from trade paperback newcomer to top-selling author along the lines of Danielle Steel and Barbara Cartland. Roberts's romance novels consistently make the bestseller lists, and since 1995 she's had a parallel career as crime writer J.D.
