According to the Romance Writers of America, “The RWA Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to a living author in recognition of significant contributions to the romance genre.”   This year that honor was bestowed upon Brenda Jackson. 


Brenda started her career in 1994 and became the first African-American author to have her book published for the Harlequin/Silhouette Desire Line.  She also became the first African-American to make the USA Today and New York Times best seller lists for the series romance genre.  2012 became even more impressive when Brenda was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for A Silken Thread.  She has 94 books in print, but will soon hit the 100 book mark.


As Brenda took the stage at RWA, a montage of pictures flashed on the jumbo screens.  My favorite part was Brenda receiving a friendship ring, at age 15, from her future husband.  It was so romantic and romance was the reason we were all at this conference.  I’m thrilled that Brenda will be attending my Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon in April.



Bottom Line:  A well-deserved award for a very special lady.
