Romance Writers of America recently honored Tracie Peterson with The RWA Centennial Award for authoring more than 100 romance novels. Here’s a list of all the authors who’ve reached this milestone.

“My writing is a ministry to extend hope and encouragement to those who may otherwise feel forsaken,” Tracie says. “It’s also a chance to share the Gospel message. There are so many people out there who will not pick up the Bible but will pick up one of my books. I feel a responsibility to share the hope that is within me and pray that the books will draw the reader closer to God.”
