ROBIN: There are so many heroes I've met throughout my life. Teachers, veterans, fire fighters, SWAT team cops, doctors, nurses...the list goes on. Most don't make the news. None want praise or adoration, and when given that admiration most are embarrassed. Today, I think I'll tell you about my great uncle. He fought in World War I. I didn't know him until he was in his 70s. He was wounded twice—once in the arm and once in the leg. He was left on a battlefield and then warned that German tanks would be coming through the next day. He dragged himself a mile (or so the family legend goes) before he was found. He came home from overseas and lived his life. He never spoke of the war, but he challenged himself always. He taught himself to speak Spanish—badly, I'm afraid. He learned to make turquoise jewelry (I still have a ring he made for me when I was a girl). He prospected for gold in New Mexico and Arizona. He was an amazing mechanic and tinkerer. But mostly, he was just always there, quiet and strong.
Is there a hero you’re just dying to write about for Intrigue?
ROBIN: I love Intrigue heroes, because I believe an Intrigue hero sacrifices himself for the sake of others. I would love to write about a man with PTSD who has given everything and is struggling to come to terms with the past. Oh, wait…I get to do that in one of my upcoming stories. You'll meet Daniel in Christmas Conspiracy. He gets his own book in 2013. I can't wait! I'm SO lucky to be able to write about the heroes who inspire me. I hope I can do Daniel justice.
What’s your favorite thing about the Harlequin Party?
ROBIN: I love walking through the Harlequin Party and seeing the authors I've read for years up close and personal. Of course, I'm always way too nervous to talk to anyone, but when I work up the courage, it's amazing to meet someone you've admired from afar for so long and to discover they are as wonderful in person as their books. I'm star struck!
