Robyn Carr | Return to Thunder Point
Author Guest / February 26, 2014

My readers wasted no time telling me they loved Thunder Point – the sales were insane! All three original Thunder Point novels, THE WANDERER, THE NEWCOMER and THE HERO were #1! I got the message loud and clear – they want more. Well, it’s going to be another exciting year in Thunder Point, beginning with THE CHANCE on February 25. Do opposites attract? Sometimes they do. Or maybe I should say, on some issues couples are as different as night and day. Looking at my own marriage, there are times my husband and I come up with the same idea at the same time – it can be spooky. Yet on some important points we couldn’t be more different. For example, if the temperature is over 75 degrees, I melt. I like to sit up late and read and I think I enjoy my bed most after six a.m. So who did I marry? A guy who is bundled up in summer, goes to bed at eight p.m. and is up before the roosters! I like the house well lit and he walks around behind me turning off lights and turning up the temperature. But for some mysterious reason it…

Robyn Carr | Jack’s Blog #4
Author Guest / January 29, 2011

Hardly a day goes by that we don’t have interesting things happen here in Virgin River. Hi, I’m Jack Sheridan, owner of Jack’s Bar, and sooner or later I manage to find myself in the middle of what ever’s going on. Not so long ago Pastor Noah Kincaid had to hitch a ride into town after his truck slid off the road and down a hill. He was avoiding a deer, but we’ve had trouble with that stretch of road before—narrow, winding roads, no guardrails. So I rounded up a few people to help tow him up the hill and while we were working on that an interesting fellow stopped by to see what was up. He asked if we needed a hand, but we had it covered. Clay Tahoma was on his way to Nathaniel Jensen’s Large Animal Veterinary Clinic. Turns out the man is a Vet Tech and farrier and will be working with Nate. It also didn’t escape my notice that he’s Native American: bronze skin, high cheekbones, hair down past his waist. Nate dropped by the bar on his way home from a house call at a ranch nearby and gave me the skinny—turns out Clay…

Spotlight on Robyn Carr
Author Spotlight / January 27, 2011

Dear Reader Friends: I think you can tell from my ongoing Virgin River series, that I’m passionate about the men and women who serve in the armed forces for our country. Passionate about their honor, their bravery and the many sacrifices they and their families make for the rest of us. I know of what I write when I create these to-die-for heroes that have my readers wanting to move to Virgin River. My husband was an Air Force helicopter and jet pilot; my son is an active-duty Army orthopedic surgeon, who recently returned from Iraq. Of course, I didn’t model Jack or Preacher or Colin Riordan, the hero in my February Virgin River novel, WILD MAN CREEK, after my family’s military men (although they might like to think so!). But I do know what drives these men—what haunts them, and what makes them happy. As for Colin, he came to Virgin River to recuperate from a horrific helicopter crash, the scars of which he bears inside and out. His family is wonderfully supportive, but it’s his art that truly soothes his troubled soul. Stung personally and professionally by an ill-advised affair, PR guru Jillian Matlock has rented an old…

Spotlight on Robyn Carr
Author Spotlight / December 27, 2010

Dear Reader Friends: Now that the shopping and the wrapping and the decorating are behind you, it’s time to spoil yourself. Time to kick back, relax and read a good book. And have I got a book for you! In PROMISE CANYON, which goes on sale tomorrow, December 28, you’ll return to Virgin River, the town built deep in California’s redwood forests by men of honor for the women they love. This first book in my 2011 trilogy introduces you to Navajo horse whisperer, Clay Tahoma, the sexy new veterinarian’s assistant, a new addition to Nate Jensen’s clinic. Clay’s the polar opposite of independent Hopi beauty Lily Yazhi, who meets him when she delivers feed from her grandfather’s store. Lily has encountered her share of strong, silent, traditional men and isn’t eager for more. But as she and Clay work to gentle a traumatized stallion, a new romance begins to sizzle, giving the Virgin River regulars like Jack and Mel a lot to talk about! A fun factoid: While I was visiting friends in Arizona, we visited an art gallery in a small town in the mountains. There I was stunned by a photo image of a Native American man…

Sandi Shilhanek | Reliving RWA In My Dreams
Sundays with Sandi / August 8, 2010

When I thought about the blog post this week I really wanted to be bright-eyed, and bushy-tailed detailing the totally wonderful time I had in Orlando at RWA 2010. However, I am sick, and while I understand that it’s a side effect of being worn down from the fun I had, I’m really ready to be over the sick, so I can truly reflect on the fun! I had the chance to attend RWA due to the generosity of Sara Reyes, and Fresh Fiction. It truly was a wonderful experience, and I would suggest anyone and everyone take the opportunity to attend even if like me you don’t think you want to be an author. Being surrounded by the amazing people of the publishing industry is really inspiring, and I have to admit had me giving a fleeting thought to writing a book. For all you other aspiring authors…your chances are still safe, because I don’t see myself writing a book, and I’m beginning to believe if you can’t visualize it you can’t achieve it. There were so many highlights, but two that really stand out was the opportunity to meet Robyn Carr. If you’ve been reading me you know…

RWA Report: Sandi Shilhanek | RWA….Thus Far
Guests , News / July 29, 2010

This is my first time to be “attending” RWA from start to finish. My trip started at the of dawn on Sunday…well ok, 7:00 AMish at a McDonalds very close to my home. There I met Sara, Pat, Gwen, Rosemary Clement-Moore and Daniel, who was just helping us to load and not actually coming on our exciting road trip. Follow me on Twitter We drove to Georgia where we spent the night. The next day we picked up Faye and continued into Florida and Disney World. The entire road trip was so exciting because I’ve never before been to Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, or yes even Disney in Florida! Since we stopped in each of these states I can now officially add them to the places I’ve visited. Lovely rooms here at the Boardwalk Resort, lovely, wonderful friends to share a once in a lifetime experience with, and the opportunity to meet so many wonderful authors I can’t possibly name them all here. I do have to mention meeting Tara Taylor Quinn, Sharon Sala and of course I had my first face to face with Robyn Carr! Ok… time to go have more great once in a lifetime experiences. Until Sunday…
