WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — Romance novelist Nora Roberts’ foundation has given a $100,000 grant to McDaniel College in Westminster — the third grant in as many years.

The grant, which was announced Tuesday, supports the Nora Roberts Contemporary American Fiction Collection housed in Hoover Library at McDaniel. The collection includes the complete works of Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb, and works of other contemporary American writers.

Roberts has written more than 200 novels. She also writes romantic suspense novels under the pseudonym J.D. Robb.

McDaniel has an online graduate certificate in romance writing and an undergraduate minor in popular fiction.
