Rebecca Rogers Maher writes gritty, realistic stories that push the boundaries of typical contemporary romance — uniting the genre’s explicit sex scenes and happy endings with the crisp, layered prose of literary fiction.

Publishers Weekly describes Rebecca’s writing as “gripping and touching,” Library Journal calls it “gut-wrenching,” and USA TODAY declares it “very well-done romance…so satisfying.”

I also know that I’m capable of multiple books, and that I have more than one story to tell, so when I release a new book, the whole world is not riding on it. It’s one of many stories I have told and will tell, and I’m not so attached to it that its success or failure is going to crush my spirit. Not only that, but writing is just a part of my life, along with being a mother, teacher, partner, friend, sister. It’s an important part of who I am, but not all of who I am. Since I think of writing in this way, writing is something that’s full of joy and freedom. It’s a release and a pleasure and a gift.(less)

Even if you think it’s terrible, even if you don’t know what your voice is yet or what you want to say—write anyway. The truth is that you don’t become a good writer by thinking about writing something someday. You become a good writer by writing. You figure out what you want to say by trying to say it. Once it’s on the page you can react, adjust, edit, refine—but you can’t do anything with nothing. This requires a certain amount of bravado, and if you don’t have that bravado, then fake it. Pretend you do. Act like someone who does. Just get some words on the page, and go from there.(less)

This took me a long time to read because it was so devastatingly, painfully true. I can't recall ever having read a more clearly and methodically argued thesis. It should be required reading for every American. And immediately after the final page: a ...more

A refreshingly unlikable heroine, whose cavalier attitudes students can actively criticize while still empathizing with and rooting for her. For that reason -- another great book to teach.

Wonderful characters, and such a great book to help students transition to a more complex stage of moral development -- to think about, tolerate, and learn to appreciate how complicated people can be.

“But that’s depression, isn’t it? It makes you selfish. It…it shrinks your world down. Like you’re inside a tornado or something. How are you supposed to care about the things outside that storm? When it’s all you can do to just survive it?”
Rebecca Rogers Maher, The Bridge

“They used to tell me if you’re depressed anyway, why not be depressed and take a walk instead of being depressed and staying in bed? If it makes no difference, why not get up and go out?”
Rebecca Rogers Maher, The Bridge

“I don’t want to talk bad about him. He’s a good father. It’s just that . . . he wasn’t that nice to me. Isn’t, I mean. Still isn’t.”“Isn’t that part of being a good dad, though? Treating your kid’s mother right?”
Rebecca Rogers Maher, Rolling in the Deep

“Oh shame, shame! Oh crying shame! How can we? Why do we allow ourselves? What are we doing? The last little room of dirt is waiting. Without windows. So for God’s sake make a move, Henderson, put forth effort. You, too, will die of this pestilence. Death will annihilate you and nothing will remain, and there will be nothing left but junk...While something still is -- now! For the sake of all, get out!”
Saul Bellow
