Following the maxim "write what you love," Jennifer Roberson has published three mainstream historical novels, including Lady of the Forest and its sequel, Lady of Sherwood, reinterpreting the Robin Hood legend with emphasis on Marian's role. The third is a Scottish historical, titled Lady of the Glen, based on the documented story of the Massacre of Glencoe, which occured in the Highlands in the 17th century when the Campbells attempted to wipe out the MacDonalds. Earlier credits include a western, a historical romance, a romantic suspense, and a novel set in television's Highlander universe of the 1990s. Though primarily a novelist, Roberson has also published approximately 30 short stories in various anthologies and magazines.
