Friday's Guest featuring Robin Deeter - Who She Was Before #MFRWauthor

1. What were you in your life before you became a writer? Did this influence your writing?

I worked all sorts of jobs.  Head of a hotel laundry room, Karaoke and radio DJ, medical appointment scheduler.  The biggest influence they had on my writing is that I knew that I didn't want to keep doing them, so it pushed me to become serious about turning my passion into a career.

2 Are you genre specific or general? Why? I don't mean genres like romance, mystery, fantasy etc. There are many subgenres of the above.

I started out writing Western Historical fiction, mainly mail order bride stories, but I've moved away from that somewhat.  I still write Western Historical stories, but I'm branching out into other romance genres, such as timeswept and contemporary paranormal.  I want to try my hand at all sorts of stuff and not get boxed in to just one sub-genre.

3. Did your reading choices have anything to do with your choice of a genre or genres?

I grew up reading romance books, so I guess it did.  Although, I also love horror and do have plans to write some horror stories later on.  My stories do have some darker elements to them, which I've been told is unusual for Western Historical romance.  I guess that's the horror writer coming out in me. 

4. What's your latest release?

And the Lightning Strikes: Chance City Series, Book 6 was my last release and I had such a wonderful time writing it.

5. What are you working on now?

Right now I'm in the middle of writing the third book in my Paha Sapa Saga series.  I haven't titled it yet, though.  I plan on launching that later in March.

 I'm also on Facebook, Twitter,Instagram, Pinterest, and I have a Youtube Channel, too.
