Friday Spotlight: Robyn Carr

This week we are excited to bring you an interview with best-selling novelist, Robyn Carr who has just released the first book in a brand new Virgin River trilogy, Promise Canyon. The second book Wild Man's Creek is due out later this month.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

I’ve published about 40 and written more – not every book makes it. Some have been rejected over and over and some are books I changed my mind about. And it’s impossible to name a favorite, but I do have some that were pivotal. The House On Olive Street was my first “girlfriend book” and I love it. And Virgin River was the first book in a long running Virgin River series – I love it, too.

Do you hear from your readers much? What do they say?

I get thousands of letters from them. Many of them tell me how much they’re enjoying the books or ask whether there will be more. But there also many letters that move me so deeply; letters from readers who identified with stories or characters, often because of the hard times they’ve had to overcome in their own lives.

Do you like thunderstorms?

I LIVE for thunderstorms. I sleep like a baby during thunderstorms.

Can you multitask?

I must have a short attention span because I have always multi-tasked, long before that became a word!

If you could wish for anything, what would you wish for?

World peace. And maybe a date with Tom Selleck.

Check back with us tomorrow for more of our interview with Robyn Carr.

THERE’S AN OLD SAYING:
WHENEVER ONE DOOR CLOSES, ANOTHER ONE OPENS.
THAT’S TRUER OF VIRGIN RIVER THAN ALMOST ANYWHERE ELSE ON EARTH.

After years spent on ranches around Los Angeles, Clay Tahoma is delighted to be Virgin River’s new veterinary assistant. The secluded community’s wild beauty tugs at his Navajo roots, and he’s been welcomed with open arms by everyone in town—everyone excerpt Lilly Yazhi.

Lilly has encountered her share of strong, silent, traditional men within her own aboriginal community, and she’s not interested in coming back for more. In her eyes, Clay’s earthy, sexy appeal is just an act used to charm wealthy women like his ex-wife. She can’t deny his gift for gentling horses, but she’s not about to let him control her. There’s just one small problem—she can’t control her attraction to Clay.

But in Virgin River, faith in new beginnings and the power of love has doors opening everywhere...

I have read many of your books, but VIRGIN RIVER remains my favorite. It really touched my heart.

Your book Promise Canyon sounds really good. I don't think I could resist Clay Tahoma either.

Question Two made me realize I must be an author's worst nightmare. I love their books, but never write a note of appreciation. Thankfully, there are more gregarious people out there who let them know how wonderful their books are.

Just so you know, I loved the Virgin River Series so much, I started reading your backlist as well.
