Karen Robards, author of Justice (as well as 39 other books and a novella . . . and counting!), gives us a sneak-peek into her writing world. Her thrillers combine suspense and scorching romance, and, according to our reviewer, the second story of Jessica Ford and Mark Ryan is a "winning summer read."

Describe your book in one sentence.
Fledgling lawyer Jessica Ford's killer new job may, literally, kill her - can hunky FBI agent Mark Ryan help keep her alive? 

  1. Where do you write?

The third floor of my house is my office.

  1. What are you reading now?

Lee Child. I'm really enjoying his Jack Reacher character.

  1. How do you conquer writer's block?

By writing. I employ the old seat of pants on seat of chair trick.

  1. Of all the characters you've written, which is your favorite?

That's a tough one. I love all my main characters. I probably identify most with Clara in Night Magic or Summer in Walking After Midnight. I'll leave you to figure out why.

  1. What was the proudest moment of your career so far?

The day I saw my first book on the shelf, of course.  The book was Island Flame (due to be re-issued by Pocket in February 2012, by the way), the cover was hot pink with a voluptuous blonde woman in a classic clench, and my name was so small you almost had to have a magnifying glass to find it. But it was my book! In a real bookstore! On a shelf with other real books for people to buy!

  1. Name one book you think everyone should read.

I've always loved A Wrinkle in Time.
