The story of Robyn Carr is unique in its nature because she never wanted to become a writer only to become number 1 New York Times bestselling author with almost fifty novels. One of her big and critically acclaimed works is the Virgin River novels.

Robyn Carr is a novelist who specializes in short stories. She has a nonfiction book and she is short story writer from America. She writes more about romance. Initially, Carr was to be a nurse. That is what she studied for in college only to deviate later on in life and become a prolific writer.

Carr married her high school sweetheart as he was leaving for the US Air force as a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War. The newly wedded couple went together in the ordeal. Carr moved from base to base with her husband.

The regular shifts could not allow Carr to practice her nursing actively resulting to her abandoning of her nursing career. Carr used to be a romantic novel reader. Most of her part time especially during her pregnancy, shoe would go to her romantic novels and keep reading before she opted to write her own stories.

As the saying goes, the Apple does not fall far from the tree; Carr opted to write romantic novels. Her inspirations were the books she read. Carr has published dozens of historical and contemporary romantic novels from 1980. Her specialty is suspense novel, nonfiction, and short stories. She also does articles and has written screenplays that are yet to be sold.

One of the initiatives that she is widely known for is Carr Chats, which is her show where she interviews other authors. The event is usually held at Paseo Verde Library in Henderson, Nevada. Carr is the proud mothers of a son and a daughter.

How she writes

Carr has written a number of standalone novels and series. Her style of writing is distinct because the themes are common and the plot points out on the same concept. In all her novel she brings out the character of strong woman.

The romance in her books will revolve around a woman that has exemplified strength emotionally and in their personalities. Maybe Carr puts herself in her books or she is just a champion of women but this may not be known. The strong protagonists are all women in her works.

The plot will also point out the strength of a woman through the handling of real women issues. In most of her stories, real women issues will be the center of focus. For a fiction writer, you expect details on the issues affecting women well brought out in ways that ordinary people can relate with.

Carr does this perfectly in her novels. Carr has a trademark of using natural features such as Valleys, Rivers, and Thunder to bring out a comparison with the story events. She has perfected her skill in using suspense to captivate the readers. What seems obvious in her works is never obvious and knowing how the story will end cannot be brought out while reading.

Carr’s books are the kind that you cannot predict the end. Her books include standalone novels such as Chelynne (1980), Blue Falcon (1981), Bellerose Bar (1982), and Braeswood Tapestry (1985) among others. Carr has done series such as the popular Virgin River and Grace Valley. She has contributed in David Copperfield’s Beyond imagination (1996).

Grace valley series

The first book in Grace Valley series is deep in the valley. The series flows with change in location as the next book is titled Just Over The Mountain, followed by Down by The River. The series begins with a busy woman in a conservative society who moves to a different society in Great Valley Californian.

The story is about the place of a woman in the society and the role of the norms and traditions of a society in the romantic lives of women. June Hudson, the protagonists is brought out as a strong woman through her position as a doctor.

Thunder Point series

The series has interesting books titled Book The Homecoming, The Promise, The Chance, The Hero, The Newcomer, and The Wanderer starting from 6 to 1. The flow is obvious, from a wanderer with no place, to a newcomer, who turns to be a hero, the chance, a promise, and then the homecoming.

The flow tells the story of Hank Cooper who leaves wealth and friends to wander and ultimately reach a new community. The lady in the series is Sarah Durpe who is portrayed to be a complicated, and beautiful woman. Hank Cooper gets involved with Sarah Durpe forcing him to choose between his old identity and a place full of new possibilities.

Virgin River series

This series has to be mentioned because it earned Robyn Carr an NYT best seller listing. The series has 20 books and has been the hallmark of her identity. The first book Virgin River is about Mel Munroe, who sees an advertisement for a midwife and a nurse. She thought that was what she needed.

Mel Munroe meets Jack Sheridan who interferes with her plan. The other 19 stories are all within the same theme of romance, love, two people getting together, sacrifice, and the complications of relationships. Carr develops a fiction relationship as if it were real and that what makes her a good author.

    I’ve read all the Virgin River books and have enjoyed the TV series. I just finished the Thunder Point series and feel there is more to be written in this series.
    Thank you so much for writing such enjoyable books.

    I loved the Sullivan’s Crossing series a lot also. Watch for Chad Michael Murray on CW station in Fall 2023 for the first book in movie form in the US as last year it was on first in Canada.

    I just read my first Robyn Carr book, A Virgin River Christmas. I really enjoyed it. I want to know if you wrote any books about the other people in this book? I enjoyed Jack and his wife, the doctor, and other people in the book. Thank you. Viretta Hess

    Thank you !

    Have one book to go to complete the Sullivan’s Crossing series. Enjoying it thoroughly, maybe as much as the Virgin River books, but I’m not so sure, since I’m a Northern California girl (age 82). Just want to thank you, Robyn Carr, for the gift of your books. I save them especially to re-read during stressful times, such as last year’s CZU wildfire, when we were evacuated within 20 minutes with a 100 lb. dog, 3 cats (two of which are semi feral), and 4 chickens. After that dreadful night, I reached for and began re-reading the Virgin River series. Familiarity with the characters brings that cuddle quality. Mel, Jack, of course, and then the other regulars. As a consequence, you are a major gift in my life. Thank you!

  7. Sue Jette Montigny: 8 years ago

    Are there any more books coming in the THUNDER POINT series?
