I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Roberta, and I am an author of Historical Fiction, mainly based on World War 2 and the Holocaust. While I never discount the horrors of the Holocaust and the Nazis, my novels are constantly inspired by love, kindness, and the small special moments that make life worth living.
I always knew I wanted to reach people through art when I was younger. I just always thought I would be an actress. That dream died in my late 20s after many attempts and failures. For the next several years, I tried so many different professions. I worked as a hairstylist and a wedding coordinator, amongst many other jobs. But I was never satisfied. Finally, in my 50’s, I worked for a hospital on the PBX board. Every day I would drive to work, I would dread clocking in. I would count the hours until I clocked out. And, the next day, I would do it all over again. I couldn’t see a way out, but I prayed, and I prayed, and then I prayed some more. One morning at 4 am, I woke up with a voice in my head, and you might know that voice as Detrick. He told me to write his story, and together, we sat at the computer; we wrote the novel that is now known as All My Love, Detrick. I now have over 30 books published, and I have had the honor of being a USA Today Best-Selling Author. I have met such incredible people in this industry, and I am so blessed to be meeting you.
I tell this story a lot. And a lot of people think I am crazy, but it is true. I always found solace in books growing up but didn’t start writing until I was in my late 50s. I try to tell this story to as many people as possible to inspire them. No matter where you are in your life, remember there is always a flicker of light, no matter how dark it seems.
I send you many blessings, and I hope you enjoy my novels. They are all written with love.
