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.
What comes first: the plot or the characters?
Most definitely the characters come first – that’s what my stories are about – the people and their issues and challenges and problems. There will be events (plot) that might put them up a tree, but it’s who they are that determines how they will resolve their issues and the eventual outcome of the story.
Are you working on anything at the present you’d like to share with us?
One of the newer residents of Virgin River, a congenial young man, is the star of the next Virgin River Christmas novel – Bring Me Home For Christmas. When he is reunited with his old girlfriend, who lives hundreds of miles away, he has many hard choices to make. And many of his new friendships hang in the balance.
What are you reading now?
I just finished reading What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss and it was awesome! I highly recommend this romance.
What is your favorite animal?
Dogs, of course. Definitely dogs.
What do you want to know about the future?
How long I’m going to live. (I think)

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...
