Roberts only has one alias that I know of, JD Robb. And if you
want to read good (relatively) SF-nal world building in a
not-really-SF romance book, I highly recommend Naked in Death.
It takes place approximately 50 years in the future, and as an
exercise I spent a few days analyzing the world-building in it,
and came up with about 35 pages of notes, most of it very subtle

besides, the In Death books are great fun.
