“Once I reacquired TIES from my granddaughter, I found myself being highly entertained... It was much more of an attention-getter than James Mitchner... Major is a talented author who gives her readers the opportunity to partake of sheer reading for pleasure… style, composition and wild imagination… I love reading a book where the good guys win and the bad ones go to that place where bad guys will reside for all eternity…”
—a reader from Texas
“I just finished TIES over the weekend! What a great book. I just loved it. I just love the subtleties…such a delightful band of characters! Harry is a loverly hero!!”
—a reader from California
“It was a really good story, with so many twists and turns, and such a wonderful command of language ...”
—a reader from Maryland
“Historical novels are my favorites and [the author has] combined this with adventure, romance, a big social message and very interesting characters.”
—a reader from Vermont
“[BOUND] is a great book—and wait until you read both TIES and PIECRUST PROMISES. More of those same folks! They're every bit as well crafted and entertaining.”
—an advance reader from Iowa
Roberta Olsen Major wore out two toy typewriters as a child before her parents realized she needed the real thing. Throughout junior high and high school, she tapped out lurid, angst-filled stories peopled with impossibly beautiful characters speaking highly improbable dialogue.
Earning a BA from Brigham Young University, she worked for a time as a librarian in sensible shoes, before switching her Major to the care and feeding of a science-minded husband and two charming children.
A published playwright and reviewer of children’s books, she now lives in Texas, where she tap dances, collects dust, and is, as always, working on her next book.
Roberta loves to hear from her readers. Write to her at:
