BOONSBORO - Guests who check in at the historic Boone Hotel when its conversion to Inn Boonsboro is complete might relax in the flashy style of Dashiell Hammett's Nick and Nora Charles, experience Gothic mystery with Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester or enjoy old-world charm reminiscent of Elizabeth and Darcy. Best-selling author Nora Roberts' dream is to decorate each of the six rooms at the hotel that she and her husband Bruce Wilder are converting to an inn in the style of great romantic fictional couples, including one of her own. The acclaimed novelist and co-owner of the historic Boone Hotel in Boonsboro's Town Square said she plans to reserve one of those rooms for her own couple, futuristic police lieutenant Eve Dallas and her Irish billionaire Roarke, who are featured in the popular "In Death" series she writes under the pseudonym J.D. Robb.

kevinc@herald-mail.com She is not unlike any garden-variety telecommuter. She wakes up, makes her way to the home office dressed in whatever is comfortable, fires up the computer. She checks her e-mail, surfs the Internet. Starts tapping away at her keyboard. There are fits and starts, interruptions to her flow. More e-mail to write, a little more surfing. Of course, not every telecommuter can lay claim to having published enough books to fill Giants Stadium - all 80,242 seats - nearly 2,000 times, but why quibble.
