Roberta C.M. DeCaprio

I am a published author and freelance writer living in the Upstate NY area with by artist husband and many beloved pets.
I have won several awards for my poetry and I was a prior Assistant Editor for INDPENDENCE TODAY newspaper ( a national publication dedicated to the needs and rights of the disabled community ). As a person born with a walking impairment myself, I know first hand the daily challenges disabled people face.
I write several genres in both romance and mainstream. My first paranormal, romantic, suspense entitled COMA COAST, was released October 1st, 2006 and its sequel, a paranormal, romantic, thriller entitled THE VANITY, hit the bookshelves August 1st, 2005. Both novels published by Wings Press ( www.wings-press.com ). 
My historical, romantic, fantasy entitled A RIVER OF ORANGE, released February 1st, 2008 and my historical, romance entitled THE GOLDEN LADY ( to be released September 11th, 2009 ) are both published by The Wild Rose Press ( www.thewildrosepress.com ). 
I've also joined forced with Write Words Inc. (www.writewordsinc.com) My mainstream, paranormal entitled FAMILY SECRETS will be available in ebook format June 1st, 2009....later to follow print format in three to six months.
I am a member of Romance Writers Of America and from 2002 to 2004 I held the position of Newsletter Editor for my local chapter, Captial Region, RWA. I interviewed such authors as Sue-Ellen Welfonder, Elaine Raco-Chase, Barbara Daly and the late Kathleen E. Woodiwiss for the monthly publication.
I have an accreditation in Child Development from Cornell Cooperative Extension and one in Fiction Writing from the Writer's Digest School in Cinn., Ohio.
A mother and grandmother of two I like to sing, go to folk concerts, collect porcelain dolls and angel figurines, as well as lions and teddy bears. I enjoy knitting, reading, going to movies, doing Native American beadwork, and playing Sims games on the computer.

A Note From Roberta C.M. DeCaprio

As a person living life with a walking disability since birth, I've learned nothing good comes easy. My grandmother always told me, when life deals you a bunch of lemons....make lemonade. I've made tons of the stuff over the years.
One thing is for sure....NEVER GIVE UP! When we give up we lose all hope of obtaining anything we've dreamed of doing. I am a classic example. A doctor once told my parents to institutionalize me....I'd never be productive in the community. I am so glad they didn't listen. As the years went by I graduated from school, worked, married, had children and grandchildren, drive my own vehicle, own my own home and have become a published author. And I plunge on in my writing as I have in life. 
In 1983 I wrote my first book, a historical entitled THE GOLDEN LADY. I believed this love story should be shared and I never stopped in my quest to have it published. After nummerous rejections and 25 years later, THE GOLDEN LADY will be released September 11th, 2009 by The Wild Rose Press.
Just goes to prove what can happen when you never give up.
Happy Writing!
