About this author

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.”

It’s what brought me to romance writing (and reading) in the first place–the idea that no matter what the characters endure, a happy ending is possible for them. They can move through what has hurt or damaged them. They can learn to give and accept love. They can get better.

It’s what I wanted for my characters—what I want for anyone...

Setting aside the corporate motivational tone, I really love the way of living this book proposes -- the clarity of purpose and the total emotional presence. A great mind-frame for starting the new year.

A beautiful example of how rich a novel can be when all the characters have complicated human motivations, and all desperately want to see themselves as the heroes of their own stories. This is so important in a book about a war we think we're too sm ...more

“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

Contemporary Romance: Win a copy of HURRICANE LILY by Rebecca Rogers Maher 1 4 May 27, 2013 12:30PM  
“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
