This has been a banner year for romance novelist Brenda Jackson. In November of last year, her film "Truly Everlasting" (an adaptation of one of her books) premiered in Jacksonville, her hometown. She and her husband financed the film, she co-wrote the script with her son, who directed the film, and her readers and relatives came from all over the country to celebrate the premiere of the film with her.

Just last week (March 2012), the Romance Writers of America announced that Brenda will receive the RWA Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award, one of the organization's highest honors.
