Prolific romance author Janet Dailey has died at the age of 69. Her books were warm, all American romances which appealed to a large audience, selling as many as 300 million copies. Her latest book is Merry Christmas, Cowboy.
While her books did not receive critical acclaim, Ms. Dailey preferred to listen to the opinions of her readers and was quoted as saying, “One of the things that to me is the biggest compliment any writer can get is hearing from the ones who say, ‘I used to think reading was boring until I picked up one of your books.’ That’s great, because I know that if they read my books they’re going to read other books; they’re going to go back to reading again.”
