Robin Carollabout this book: Robin, tell us about FEAR NO EVIL. It's the story of Lincoln Vailes, the best friend of the heroine from DELIVER US FROM EVIL. With his father in a nursing home and his mother needing support, former Great Smoky Mountains park ranger Lincoln Vailes moves to the bayou town of Eternal Springs, Louisiana, to become a police officer. Recent college graduate and eager social worker Jade Laurent has also moved there to try and right the wrongs of an abusive past. But someone is running her car off the road and pointing guns in her direction. As Lincoln investigates her case, he uncovers ties to big-city gang warfare up north that appears to be making its evil way down south.
Gangs, domestic violence, nursing home ... that's a lot. Where do your story and character ideas come from? Story and character ideas come from everywhere for me: television, news, even the internet. And I'm a huge people-watcher. In airports, on ships…I find some of the coolest quirks just by observations.
Your setting is in Louisiana ... What's one thing everyone outside of Louisiana should know about Louisiana? It truly is a different way of life than every other state. The food, the people, even the culture and language.
Robin, you write about murder and mayhem with such realism. Do you ever get squeamish when writing murder scenes? Nope. Here's a secret for you…I have a weak, weak stomach when it comes to smells or illness, but blood and such doesn't bother me at all. Very odd, I know.
What do you think makes your style of storytelling unique, Robin? I think each author has their own voice that makes their stories unique. I've found that as I write various characters, in a wide range of ages, each still has some of my own voice in each of them. That's kind of fun, actually.
Robin, what's your biggest challenge in balancing writing time with your other responsibilities? There are always going to be challenges…with a "regular" job, you have to balance your hours at work with your responsibilities at home. I stress to family & friends that writing is my "job" so it must be treated as such. Does that always work? Not hardly, but if I need to, I've been known to work extra-long marathon hours to hit a deadline, so it's more about honoring my word—contract—and doing what I said I would.
Robin, how do your faith and spiritual life play into the picture and affect your storytelling? I think it comes naturally as I'm a Christian and I write in faith as I see it in my own life and those around me.
