Sheila Roberts - Romance
Sheila Roberts, (also Sheila Rabe) has numerous books to her credit. Starting with Faint Heart, she wrote a series of regency romances during the 1990s which continue to have a world-wide following. Roberts then continued with romance novels in a contemporary setting. Her 2007 book On Strike for Christmas was a holiday best-seller and her 2008 book Bikini Season made the 'Bookscan’ romance best-seller list. Roberts' latest book, Love in Bloom just arrived in bookstores in April 2009. In it, heroine Hope Walker survived breast cancer but is left emotionally scarred by her mastectomy. Hope owns a flower shop in town and also works in the community garden. There she gets to know the two women who share neighboring plots and they discover that they can learn a lot from each other—not just about gardening, but about life. Hope realizes that in order to live life to the fullest, sometimes you have to take a chance on love. And this is just what she does when a handsome contractor walks into her shop. The 'Romantic Times BOOKreviews' says of Roberts' books "Her characters are warm and engaging, and their interactions are full of humor." Roberts is currently promoting her newest book and giving interviews on radio and on TV. In between, she is busy writing, speaking to women’s groups or at conferences, tending to her garden, and being active in the local writing community. For a bibliography of the author's works go to or
