Robyn Carr

2019 Nevada Writers Hall of Fame Inductee


Robyn Carr was an Air Force wife and a young mother of two when she started writing fiction in the mid-1970’s. Since then, she has become one of the world’s most popular authors of romance and women’s fiction, with 11 of her novels reaching the number one spot on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Robyn’s novels have spent nearly 250 weeks on that prestigious list and have sold over 27 million copies worldwide.

In addition to her wildly popular contemporary romance series — which include Virgin River, Thunder Point and Sullivan’s Crossing — Robyn also writes stand-alone women’s fiction. Her recent novels have landed on the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly and Wall Street Journal best sellers lists, and Netflix is currently producing a 10-episode series based on the Virgin River series, set to premier in late 2019 or early 2020.

Robyn is now living her dream of writing one stand-alone women’s fiction novel and one contemporary romance per year. She makes her home in Las Vegas, Nevada, and loves spending time with her two grown children and grandchildren.
