For those of you who are not aware, Sarah Robinson has quickly risen to the ranks of top authors for me. Her latest book EVERY LAST DROP is beyond AMAZING. Run, don’t walk, to grab you a copy of this. Sarah was so kind as to provide me with a little interview and insight into her career and personal life. She’s down-to-earth and never hesitates to help out a newbie novelist like myself. Here we go…
How did you get started writing novels? What prompted your first novel?
I began writing poetry in high school as a form of self-expression. This led to some publications in literary journals and local publications. Eventually a freelance writing job led to me being asked to write short stories, and then longer stories, and then novels. I’d honestly never considered being an author before because it felt like an unattainable goal. I didn’t even know I could dream about it. But I took the opportunity and wrote my first book, and it’s all kept going since then! Looking back, I wish someone had told me as a child that writing could be a career.
What’s your personal favorite of all the books you’ve written?
My top two favorite books that I’ve written are Every Last Drop (standalone women’s fiction) and Nudes (interconnected standalone romance). The reason I love these two books the most is that they hit me emotionally the hardest, and they both have a strong empowerment message for women, and humans in general. I love writing with a message, and writing in a way to make people think and challenge their previous notions.
What do you find to be the biggest challenge for you as a writer?
Finding time to write, be a full-time new mom to a baby with intense medical concerns, be a full-time therapist, and somehow still manage to sleep. Juggling work/life balance is hard and sometimes responsibilities get dropped.
You are a new mom. Has that changed your writing routine or your stories at all?
Absolutely. I still managed to write 3 books during my pregnancy and I’ve written one book plus some other writing projects in the nine months since she’s been born. Looking back though, I’m not sure how I’m juggling it all. I just write when I can and when I’m not too tired. That’s all I can do!
What author inspires you the most?
I don’t think that there is one answer to that, but the authors I look up to the most are the ones who are always willing to help and answer questions for newbie authors. This isn’t a competition, this is a community and the people who understand that and help lift up one another are my favorite people.
