I have an Accreditation in Child Development from Cornell Cooperative Extension, and have worked as an after school counselor and with children who have behavioral problems in an in-home respite setting.
I've been writing for over 30 years....first poetry and short stories, then full length novels. To date I have eight books published in the historical and paranormal romance genre and they are as follows: COMA COAST & THE VANITY - www.wings-press.com A RIVER OF ORANGE, THE GOLDEN LADY, ONE PERFECT FLOWER, A ROSE IN AMBER, & BORN OF PROUD BLOOD - www.thewildrosepress.com ALTERED JOURNEY - www.zlspublishing.com To view my backlist and read excerpts from all of these books log on to: www.robertadecaprio.com and have fun browsing my site.
I am a former editor and columnist for ABLED WOMAN MAGAZINE and INDEPENDENCE TODAY newspaper. Both of these national publications are dedicated to the needs of the disabled community. As someone born with a walking disability myself, I know firsthand the challenges faced when living with an impairment.
I am a mother and grandmother, active in animal rights as well as those of the Native Americans and the disabled. I make my home in the Upstate NY area with my artist husband and many beloved pets.
I read this book when it first came out and I loved it. It kept me up for 2 nights and the ending was very unexpected. Roberta DeCaprio has written another wonderful book called "The Vanity." Which is a continuation of her first book. But this book can also be read as a complete other worldly story on it's own. I can normally figure out the ending in mysteries, but both endings to these two books were a surprise to me. If you like the first book you will love the second.
