Her great sense of romance and adventure is felt with every stroke of the pen. Whether it be in real life or in the depths of her vivid imagination and deep curiosities, Carla Neggers habitually plots her next adventure. If you ever wanted to know what it takes to rise to the top of the New York Times Bestselling list, those types of attributes, can certainly help and Carla Neggers knows that first hand.

In rural Massachusetts, on the edge of the Quabbin Reservoir, Carla Neggars was born and when she was just a little one, she would live vicariously through the tales of her father, stories of life as a dutch sailor and the humble beginnings of her mother in her native Florida.

Since the age of eleven, while climbing to the top of a tree with a pad and pen, she has been spinning yarns and composing new ideas.

She has sold over a million books in thirty countries. Her popularity rose to new heights with the release of “Sharpe and Donavin” series of romantic novels. The series features FBI agents, Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan, and they were delivered as a tandem with the release of “Saint’s Gate”, in 2011. Both novels have been praised and cited for a read that is nothing short of breathtaking and they are an experience, that is truly not to be missed.

In 2012, Carla Neggers debuted her “Swift River Valley” series, which was released along with her modern classic, “Secrets of the Lost Summer.” The two combined subtle greatness and they both garnered a lucrative star review from Booklist and also a top pick, given from RT Book Reviews. The moment that she became catapulted into the ranks of bestseller was when she was rewarded by the publication heavyweights, such as USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller list and of course, the aforementioned, New York Times Bestseller List.

As it stands, Carla Neggers can boast a resume of 70 novels, her free time is spent in the company of family at her homestead with her husband, six brothers, sisters and their children.

The moments that Carla is not blessing all of us with her gift of words is when she persues her love of travel, gardening, hiking, kayaking and also she loves delving into a great book.

Her Ideas

According to Neggers, all her ideas come to her in different ways, times and situations, the most common time, is when she least expects it. She could be either at the grocery store, on an elevator in Boston, cooking, cleaning, gardening, hiking in Ireland or even sitting at her desk, brainstorming various ideas. She mentions that the trick to it all is to try and figure out what ideas are worth creating.

The Time it Takes

The duration of time that elapses for Neggers to craft a book, according to her, is all about the percolation of an idea. It could be a long time before she actually decides to finally get it out into the physical. She also mentiones her lack of discipline and living without regimen, which plays a major role in the fact that she can’t ever remember the exact amount of time in which actually took to write the novel.

The Birth of Characters

Neggers spoke about how her characters originally came to fruition, she said that sometimes they find her and then sometimes, she finds them. She discussed a scenario in which, if Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan had came to her door, that she would recognize them immediately and that their presence is something she feels is virtually real. She has tried the the premeditation route of creation but when the characters come to her, that’s when the magic happens.

The Beginning: A Look at Carla Neggers First Two Novels

Rock Point

Intense. Out of all the many words that could describe Carla Neggers very first masterpiece, intense sums it up the best. The story immerses itself within the tale of Finian Bracken, seven years after suffering an unspeakable devastation. He finds himself on the outskirts of his seminary, leaving Ireland to focus his energies on becoming a parish of a fishing community that is no doubt quaint but is also in the grips of economic hurt. In the village of Rockport, Maine, he comes into contact with a name that so many of Neggers fans would eventually grow to love, FBI agent Colin Donovan. In the process, Donovan learns of Brackens dangerous secrets that were left upon the shores of Ireland. What was simply thought as Bracken’s inherited old family whiskey parlor is soon to be discovered in reality as a whitewash for illegal activity and the violent gang at the helm aren’t going down so easily…

The epic opening of the Sharpe & Donovan Series, Rock Port is simply what every series of novels strives for, an honestly heart pounding entrance. Inside the pages of Rock Port, you will discover that every great series has a beginning….even a cult favorite.

Saint’s gate

Rock Port was the beginning but Saint’s Gate was the very beginning of a crime fighting tandem that could very well give Holmes and Watson a run for their money. Sharpe and Donavin, together for the first time…and it starts with a bang.
Summoned to a convent on the dreary coast of Main, Emily Sharpe is chosen on behalf of her methodical success in the bureau and of her connection to the Order At the heart of matters, is a painting of Viking legends and Irish fable. The legend of this so-called mythical painting begin to look more real by the day, as the nun who contacted Sharpe for her services is mysteriously murdered.

One of the FBI’s most prized agents finds himself in the mix of this complicated tale of misdeeds. He has arrived back home in Maine, after his legendary work in “Rock Port”, following directly after a contact fills him in on the latest bizarre happenings in town. High profile art heist and deep secrets is a little too much for Donovan to resist and in the process, he teams up with what will be a partnership for the ages…..

    Good afternoon! It’s been a long time (2019) since the last Sharp and Donovan book was published. I was conditioned to getting a new one in August each year 🙂 Do you have any idea when the next one will arrive? It’s August 2023 currently.
    Thank you
