Index o’ Answers

With new readers joining the fold every day, certain questions are asked time and again.  When an author’s career spans more than three decades or a series approaches its 20th anniversary you can only imagine how many times Nora has answered these questions.

We fully understand the excitement of finding a new author or a new series and that those questions are brand new to the people posing them.  So we thought an index of the most frequently asked questions over the years along with Nora’s expanded answers on the blog might help.

Please note that you may not agree with all the answers but as the creator of the books, Nora has the final say in all these matters.

We hope you find your answers below.

And some questions I’ve pulled over from the FAQ page on Nora’s website:

Will Nora write more about characters from any series/book she has written?

Readers write all the time asking for more stories about the characters they love. While it’s wonderful that the characters have woven their way into readers’ hearts, by the time a book is released, Nora has already bid those characters a fond farewell and met a new set of characters who will later charm and enchant her readers.

When will Nora finish the MacGregor or Stanislaski series?

Nora’s last book for Silhouette was released in 2002.  It is extremely difficult to take characters to a different publisher so Nora had to leave those beloved families behind.
