I have read 12 of the books in J.D. Robb's In Death series. Another book is due out soon. Do you know how many books she'll be writing in this series?

As long as she has stories to tell, according to her publisher. The 13th book in the series, Seduction in Death, hit stores this month. Expect the series to last a while since the author writes at a breakneck pace (new books in the series are released every six months) and already has more than 100 books to her credit. J.D. Robb is the alter ego of best-selling romance writer Nora Roberts (Carolina Moon, Sanctuary). In 1995, she published Naked in Death, a novel featuring police detective Eve Dallas, set in New York City in 2058, under the name J.D. Robb. She took the initials from her sons, Jason and Dan, and shortened Roberts to Robb. Roberts/Robb lives in Keedysville, Md. (pop. 482).
