Meet an Author Monday ~ Robin Covington
Welcome to Meet an Author Monday!
I am so excited to introduce you to Robin Covington, writer and all around wonder person extraordinaire.
"I grew up in the small southern town of Danville, Virginia. The granddaughter of a Covington-007preacher on my Daddy’s side and an epic storyteller and musician on my Mama’s side. I was an unapologetic tomboy who always had my nose buried in a book. As you can imagine, spinning tales in my head, on the page, and out loud was in my blood. I scribbled scenes down on pieces of paper and notebooks and created stories in my head on long drives – in between four-part harmony with my family on the way to a singing gig for our family band.
The stories never left me but as I got older, I put aside the urge to put them down on paper as I made my way through college, law school, marriage and motherhood. I promised myself that I would write that book. . .someday. And then two weeks before I turned 40, a dear friend lost her 5 year battle with breast cancer and I realized that I was never guaranteed all those days in the distant future when I would write that book in my heart. As my friend said, “Someday is not a day of the week.”
So, I started writing and I kept writing and I kept writing until one day I was offered a publishing contract and I’ve never looked back.
I have books published with Entangled Publishing (PLAYING THE PART, SWEET SOUTHERN BETRAYAL and few more) and I also have ventured into independent publishing with DARING THE PLAYER and TEMPTATION.
This year I am so excited to expand the TEMPTATION universe into the Nashville Nights trilogy. Each book will be a standalone, with no cliffhangers but I guarantee smart heroines, sexy heroes, so much steam between the sheets (and in the backseat of the car, in the hallway, on the desk. . .) that you might want to run the A/C while you indulge your reading habit!
I love Haribo gummy bears and caramel anything. I adore Pembroke Welsh Corgis and I wear red everyday. I am a comic book geek who was thrilled when Superman and Wonder Woman finally got together. My favorite things are my kid’s laughter and my husband’s blue eyes. I firmly, unequivocally, and without any doubt believe that everyone deserves love and I make sure that they get it in my books.
Thanks so much for reading and letting me live this dream. I love to hear from readers, so drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I always write back . . ."
