America loves romance fiction. These works are extraordinarily popular among public library patrons and are widely read by high school students as well. Because the genre is so popular, new writers are constantly emerging, as are new works of fiction. As a result, general readers and students have trouble finding information about their favorite romance novelists and their most recent books. Written for students and readers of romance fiction, this book surveys contemporary American romance literature. Publication date, November 2006 by Greenwood Publishing Group.
Romance Today: An A-to-Z Guide to Contemporary American Romance Writers “As the romance genre grows in popularity and romance writers become more prolific, this work provides needed and hard to come by information for more than a hundred contemporary romance authors. The authors were chosen for the quality of their work and their prominence in the field. A full spectrum of romance genres, from Regencies to time travel romances, are represented by these authors. The bio-bibliographic essays in the volume are mainly based on statements provided by the authors themselves. The essays give us a glimpse into the rich and diverse backgrounds of the writers themselves. Each essay also strives to analyze the author’s significant works and give an overall view of the style and format. This work fills a major need and will be of use for librarians, scholars, and general readers of romance.”
