Curious facts about
She didn't start writing until she was 29 years old. It all began with a #2 pencil and a spiral notebook. Snowed in with her two young boys during a 1979 storm, Nora Roberts, AKA, J.D. Robb, Jill March, and Sarah Hardesty (U.K. pseudonym), got in touch with her creative side and began writing.
She once said, "I've never taken a course on writing. I've never read a book on writing. This isn't something that would work for me. Every writer has to figure out what works best -- and often has to select and discard different tools before they find the one that fits..."
She also writes a futuristic crime/romance series under the name J.D. Robb.
She first tried submitting her works to Harlequin, but was rejected. Her first publisher was Silhouette.
