My Story

Hello Dear People!

I’m Stephanie Roberts a children’s author and romance writer.

I’m addicted to writing. My dream is to get my books into the hands of readers and be traditionally published.

Backstory:

My journey started in 2011 when I wrote a screenplay For the Love of a Dog which was optioned by New York producer Lee Levinson of Levinson Productions.

Unfortunately, we did not get the funding to go to the screen. Passionate about my story, I wrote it into a novel entitled On the Wings of Autumn and then a re-write into Love Me which finally won a Book Excellence Honouree Award 2019.

Encouraged, I re-wrote and polished the story, marrying the two manuscripts and pitched it live at the Romance Writer’s Conference, 2019 to publishers and an agent.

I’m now biting my nails waiting to hear if it will finally be published.

My dream is to have my novel in bookstores and my inspirational story based on true incidents from my life, out to the readers of True Romance.

Joshua’s World was written for my 7-year-old grandson who is an expert on Minecraft.

He uses his skills developed in Minecraft to conquer his World and save it and his brothers, from the baddies.

The book won an Honouree award 2019 in the Book Excellence Literary Awards. I hope many kids enjoy Joshua's adventures.

Liam Shark Boy was inspired by my 4½-year-old grandson who loves all creatures big and small, but particularly Sharks!

I was never more surprised when it won a Silver Medal in the prestigious eLit Book Awards 2016 and an Honouree Award in the Book Excellence Awards 2018. Since then, it has sold over 7,000 copies and many little boys have told me they would like to have Liam's magic eyes ... some say they do :)

These children have no classroom, just an enormous undercover area with a concrete floor. In winter the wind blows through and in summer it is very hot. They have few picture books. They write on slates, always shared (no paper), but they are happy and eager to attend ‘school’. They remain quiet when asked to, they wait their turn, patiently. They look after each other and comfort a child who may be crying or upset or stop to pick up someone who may have fallen over. They share what they are given to eat. These children have so little, yet they are so happy and contented.

Learning online skills is a challenge I have studied and mastered to a degree over the last 8 years since I started writing.

Previously, my career spanned over many years in the educational field, running my own Beauty Colleges in Canberra and Sydney, Australia, while I raised my family, spoiled the dogs in my life and travelled with my long-suffering secret-service agent husband, Chris (retired).

Hmm … there are many stories to tell in the series, if I get traditionally published with my first book!

My dream is to get commissioned to write The College series - the unusual backdrop of a Beauty College and its characters is deftly played against a story-line that has meaningful things to say about the inherent vulnerability of the human condition.

I’ve even designed a book cover in anticipation! I usually do this. I need a cover before I can write. It gets the creative storytelling imagination juices flowing!

I started a Facebook Author Page, which quickly gleaned over 4,000 followers. The popular posts developed into the Book of Inspirations featuring Famous On-screen Lovers. Now it is on coffee tables around the world to spread love and light. ♥


My readers asked for more, so I designed a set of cards, THE WELL OF TRUE GESTURES to help couples bond in their relationship.

The true romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you are thinking of your significant other. Romance isn’t about buying, it’s about giving.

True Romance is in the Gestures.

OUT SOON!
