Nora Roberts is an American novelist with more than 209 romance books to her credit. She writes under the pseudonyms of J.D, Rob, Jill March and Sarah Hardesty, apart from her own name.
Nora was born on October 10, 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, and is the youngest among five children. She is of an Irish descent as her parents have Irish predecessors. Her family was full of voracious readers, so books were critical in her life. During her early days, Nora wasn’t much of a writer and only wrote a few essays for school. She studied in a Catholic school and credited the nuns there for instilling discipline in her. Later on, Nora moved to a local public school, named the Montgomery Blair High School, from where she completed her schooling.
