Last month I was at the Baltimore Book Festival. I had the chance to interview, Robin Covington.
This is the interview:
Hello, Robin. Thanks for agreeing to meet with me at the book festival. Could tell us a little about yourself and about the types of books you write?
Hi Beckey! I’m from a small town – Danville – in Southwest Virginia where my family has lived forever. I’m married for 19 years with two kids and I’m a lawyer for the US Navy by day. I also front a local band and I spend lots of time performing with them.
I write super sexy contemporary romance with strong Alpha heroes and smart women.
How or what inspired you to become a romance author?
I had a good friend who passed away from breast cancer at the age of 42 when I had just turned 40. I had been a writer all my life and kept saying that I would try to get published “one day”. When she passed, I realized that my someday might never get here for me. So, I decided then to write my first book and to pursue my dream.
What is your favorite book that you have written so far?
His Southern Temptation. I LOVE Lucky, the hero. He wants Taylor, the heroine, so bad and he will stop at nothing to get her.
How do you come up with the idea for the book you have written?
Movies. TV. I eavesdrop on conversations. *grin* Music is a huge inspiration for me.
Do you experience writers block and if so what do you do to overcome these types of obstacles?
I just sit down and write crap until I work through it. I might switch to another scene and write on through.
What type of writer are you? Organic or Organized?
Organized. I plot out the scenes and lay it all out. If I don’t then it is a disaster. A hot mess. Really.
Would you like to say anything to your fan/readers?
I LOVE to hear what you think of my books! So email me and say hi! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, Robin.
