Voice for Equality: Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts, born in Silver Spring, Maryland, is a bestselling American author of more than 165 romance novels, and she writes as J.D. Robb for the "In Death" series. She also has written under the pseudonym Jill March, and by error, some of her works were published in the UK as Sarah Hardesty.

Ms. Roberts was the first author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. As of 2006, her novels had spent a combined 660 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List, including 100 weeks in the number-one spot. Over 280 million copies of her books are in print, including 12 million copies sold in 2005 alone. Her novels have been published in 35 countries.

In July of 2009, Nora Roberts offered her support of the freedom to marry through a statement provided to Equality Maryland, her home state’s gay advocacy group:
Love is a gift. Marriage is a celebration of and commitment to that gift--a promise between two people. The right to legally marry should never be denied based on the gender of those who love, but instead honored, respected and protected for all.
Freedom to Marry salutes Nora Roberts, no stranger to stories about love and commitment, as a Voice for Equality!
