Nora Roberts


Nora Roberts answers YOUR questions

Earlier this year we spent some time with Nora Roberts at Castle Ashford in Ireland, where the Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy is set. Before we went, we asked YOU, her readers, what questions you’d like to ask Nora. And you came up with some great ones.

In the video below, Nora Roberts answers YOUR questions. Enjoy!

*Exclusive Nora Roberts video*

In August this year, we had the honour of spending some time with Nora at Castle Ashford in County Mayo. Nora was in Ireland for a one-off reader event to promote her Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy but we managed to squeeze a few minutes into her schedule to record this exclusive clip.

We also recruited readers to ask Nora questions about her books, written both as Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb. Come back next week for the chance to see Nora’s answers to YOUR questions.
