Thanks for your question. The Good Lie is an example of authors writing about the things that make them mad. I feel very, very strongly about the rights of children and teenagers to control their own bodies. I get very angry at stories in the news about adults who have abused their positions of power and control--whether they are parents, teachers, clergymen, etc.--to commit horrible crimes against young people.

The lawyer in the book, Angela Peligro, is based on a lawyer I know who made a career of suing people and institutions who committed abuse against children. I know a lot of people in the community found her tactics too harsh and aggressive, but I really admire what she did. I admire people who stand up for children.

In the same way, I'm sure there are some readers who won't like the outcome of The Good Lie, but it stems from a very protective policy I have when I write my books: nobody messes with my girls.

Thanks for asking, but I don't have anything on the schedule right now. I've got my head down and I'm writing more installments of The Bradamante Saga. Once I come up for air again (next year?) I'll probably be itching to be social again!

I loved this collection. The stories were sweet and cheerful and exactly right for a cozy read with a cup of coffee and some cookies. An entirely pleasant afternoon in Romanceland!

Quotes by Robin Brande  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“You know what they say," Amanda said. "Hatred isn't the opposite of love, it's just another variation of it. They both mean you have passionate feelings for someone.”
Robin Brande, Fat Cat

“I'm proud to be a freak of nature.”
Robin Brande, Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature

“Maybe if I had to boil it down to one easy sentence, it would be this: I believe in evolution, and I believe in God. I just haven't worked out the details yet.”
Robin Brande, Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature

“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.”
Joseph Campbell

“Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have "essential" and "long overdue" meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance. I must therefore guard the time allotted to writing as a Hungarian Horntail guards its firstborn egg.”
J.K. Rowling

“Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”
Norman Vincent Peale

“Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.

Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide.”
Michio Kaku

“I've always found that if your life is hurtling out of control, it's best to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies.”
Robin Brande, The Good Lie

John Hi Robin. Thanks for adding me on here also. This is looking like a good site for authors and readers without all the spam of "that other one".
