Author Thursday: Interview with Robin D. Owens

Interview

1. What flavor is your writing?

I am known for writing animal companions. I write fantasy romance and fantasy for women, and contemporary romance ghost stories. Most are sexy but not erotic.

2. If Ghost Seer was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

I really don't think in terms of actors, maybe you all could help me out. Zach has some Native American blood and it shows, he's a tough ex-deputy sheriff. Clare, herself, comes from a line of Hungarian gypsies, and completely suppresses her wild side under her accounting background.

3. What is your favorite scene in Ghost Seer?

Ah, that would be a spoiler! But I enjoy when Zach first sees Clare muttering to herself (or, rather, her ghost Labrador spirit guide) and inserts himself into the conversation.

4. What are you reading now or what books do you have in your TBR pile?

I have just finished The Last Chance Christmas Ball, a Regency Historical anthology by Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Patricia Rice, Joanna Bourne, Nicola Cornick, Cara Elliott, Anne Gracie and Susan King. Prior to that it was Devoted in Death by J.D. Robb.

I love to reread books in my library, so I've recently read, Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews and Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston.

5. What are you working on now?

I just finished number four in my Ghost series, Ghost Talker, which will be out in February, 2016, and I am working on a novella in my Celtic HeartMate series: "Lost Heart" which will also be published early next year.

Book Blurb

When her eccentric aunt passes away, no-nonsense accountant Clare Cermak inherits more than just a small fortune, she receives the gift to communicate with ghosts. While Clare may not believe in spirits, it's hard to overlook the shadowy talking dog appearing on her bed or spectral cowboys tipping their hats to her in the streets of Denver. But when she locks eyes with sexy – and living – Zach Slade, there's certainly no ignoring him either.

A former deputy sheriff, Zach is leaving a painful past behind in Montana for a new life in Denver as a private investigator, a job that has him crossing paths with beautiful Clare. Not that she minds. After the restless ghost of a Wild West gunman demands her assistance, Clare finds herself needing Zach more and more – and not just for help.

Ghost Seer is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Looking forward to reading the next installment in the Ghost series and most especially the Celta story. I am completely hooked on the Heart series, having read and re-read every book in the series. Thank you for the interview with one of my favorite authors!

Robin D owens is one of the best writers out there! The Celta Heart series is an amazing body of work. I own them all in ebook and paper.

The Ghost series is good, but I really love the 13 soon to be 14 books in the Heart Series plus a short story collection set on that world.
