USA Today bestselling author Robin Stone started writing stories when she was five years old. She wrote essays, articles, and over a million words of non-fiction before turning to fiction in 2011. She watched contemporary erotic romance authors having way too much fun, and after writing her first erotic romance, she was hooked.
She writes contemporary and erotic romances starring handyman heroes. Robin’s imagination is filled with delivery men, landscapers, and carpenters. Her sex-positive books (M/F, M/M, and M/M/F) are emotional stories that keep readers coming back for more.
Robin lives near Boston and likes reading, travel, and eating good chocolate. She loves hearing from her readers. Visit www.robin-stone.net/books/ to see a list of her books.
I’ll be attending the Fall in Love With New England Reader/Author Conference in Boxborough, Massachusetts October 15th and 16th, 2021. See this link for info.
Should I read your books in a certain order?
My series books should be read in order, but my standalones can be read in any order.
The Landscaper Series and The Blue Collar Collection are now in print. You can buy them on Amazon. Sign up for my newsletter for announcements about future print editions.
Can I buy books directly from you?
Not at this time. But I’m working on a shop to sell some gift items.
How can I find out about your new releases?
Sign up for my newsletter (in the left sidebar) to hear about new releases and read excerpts.
Are your characters based on you or anyone I know?
Will you attend my writer or reader conference?
Yes, I’ll consider attending conferences. Please contact me to discuss attending any future events.
Where do you get your ideas?
I get ideas from reading, TV, and movies.I think about characters I like and say “What if she…” I saw a cute delivery man one day and wondered “What if he had a fling with a client?” and Delivery Man was born.
How long does it take you to write a book?
It takes me about two months to write and thoroughly revise my novellas. I hand my book off to beta readers and send it to my editor during this time. I’m currently writing a novel, and it’s taking longer, but I want to get it right.
What is your favorite thing about being a writer?
I love it when readers send me messages about my books! I save every message, and some of them are very touching. I love it when a reader tells me that my book helped them in a personal way. I also love meeting readers online and at signing events. Basically: Readers!
What’s your least favorite thing about being a writer?
I dislike some of the behind-the-scenes maintenance needed to keep an author business afloat, like keeping track of expenses and advertising efforts. I’m constantly working on streamlining my process so I can spend more time writing.
Do you have an agent or publisher?
Not at this time. I self-publish my books through my own publishing company, Summer Night Publishing. However, I might consider a traditional publishing offer.
Who are some of your favorite contemporary/erotic romance writers?
Too many to name, but I like: Selena Kitt, Penny Wylder, Taryn Quinn, Patient Lee, Em Petrova, Jane Rylon, and Erica Wilde.
What TV shows do you like?
I love well-written TV shows with strong female characters like: Suits, Shades of Blue, Veronica Mars, Firefly, The Walking Dead, Major Crimes, Timeless, and The Equalizer.
