Arkansas Author: Robin Carroll

By: 22 November 2010 One Comment

Robin Carroll may write fiction, but her plots come from very real-life events. The author of three novels is from Little Rock where she is also a conference director. One of her novels, Deliver Us From Evil, was recently nominated by Romantic Times for the 2010 Reviewer’s Choice Best Inspirational Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Novel.

“Everything inspires me to write,” she said. “My children, news stories, people I see in a store or restaurant–everything.”

Here’s what she had to say about her three books:

Title of Book: Deliver Us From Evil

Publisher: B&H Publishing

Target audience: Adult

Tell us about your book, what’s it about?

A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history-with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee-will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail

Any other thoughts or information you want to share?

The reason I wrote this particular book is because I watched a television special on child trafficking with my husband. As a mother of three daughters, I couldn’t stop the ache in my heart long after the show was over. I couldn’t get the image of these poor girls’ faces out f my mind. The horrors these children endure in their own poverty-stricken country is horrible enough, but to be brought to America and be further exploited and abused is appalling. When my outrage settled deep inside me, I knew I had to write a story about this most serious issue.

Title of Book: Fear No Evil

With his father in a nursing home and his mother needing support, former Great Smoky Mountains park ranger Lincoln Vailes moves to the bayou town of Eternal Springs, La., to become a police officer. Recent college graduate and eager social worker Jade Laurent has also moved there to try and right the wrongs of an abusive past. But someone is running her car off the road and pointing guns in her direction.
