After first being published in 1978, it took Robyn Carr 30 years to become an ‘overnight’ success. In the years between the publication of Chelynne, which was recently released in e-format, and the 2007 release of Virgin River, Robyn wrote a number of contemporary, historical and women’s fiction novels, including the RITA award winning By Right of Arms
The first book in the wildly popular Virgin River series was published in 2007 and it was only a year later with the release of A Virgin River Christmas that Robyn finally hit the NYT’s bestseller list. Every Virgin River novel since has been a NYT’s bestseller as have some of her older reissues. In 2011, Bring Me Home for Christmas, the 16th book in the series debuted at #1 on that list, as have seven titles since. The 2013 Thunder Point trilogy of The Wanderer, The Newcomer and The Hero were all #1 with The Hero racking up 8 #1 placements making it the best selling book in America that week.
Coming in 2014 are three new Thunder Point novels and a women’s fiction titled Four Friends to be released in April.
