Nora Roberts was born in 1950 in Silver Spring Maryland, the youngest of five children. She married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland. She worked briefly as a legal secretary but wasn't very good at it.  After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along.  A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet.  She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate. Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn't reading or making up stories.  During the now famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born.  Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book was published by Silhouette in 1981. Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves.  They were married in July 1985.  Since that time, they've expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together. Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl.  She has raised two sons.  Having spent her life surrounded by men has given her a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers.  It was, she's been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming. Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry.
