Let's face it, we aren't like Hollywood types who spend the better half of each day with a personal trainer, a favorite nip/tuck expert, or any other professional who make us look like movie stars.

Rosemary "Call me the Divine Miss R" Rogers:Janet "Nora Roberts had reduced me into living in a trailer home, that bitch!" Dailey:Valerie "I don't understand why people run away when they see me" Sherwood:Shirlee "Don't I look like fine tablecloth?" Busbee:Danielle "I have sold 530 million copies of my books but for some reason I can't find a good PR person to stop me from taking photos like this one" Steele:You can see more authors in their finest glory here. Warning: it's a pretty insulting essay about the romance genre.
