Welcome to 3 Questions Wednesday! Today’s interview is with former Crew Member, Robin E. Mason.
Hi, Robin! It’s great to hear from you 🙂
Question: What inspires you?
Robin: Morning coffee. LOL Truly though, what doesn’t inspire me? Holy Spirit is my Muse, and I can find inspiration anytime, anywhere. He’s funny like that, whispers at random times, random moments.
I guess many people would say coffee. 🙂
Just for fun–You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Robin: Amethyst Rose. Amethyst is my birthstone and royal purple is my favorite color. My grandfather bought an amethyst ring in 1919 (!) and it’s now mine. It is a) an unusual setting, and b) a rare pink amethyst. It is my most cherished possession.
Wow. Sounds like a beautiful heirloom.
Final Question–As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Robin: Which year? I remember wanting to be an actress early on. I’ve done some acting and love it! I wanted to be an Interior Designer—and have earned my degree in that. But the stories have always been chattering in my head, I just didn’t know they were trying to get out in book form! LOL
Thank you so much for visiting 3 Questions Wednesday.

The Long Shadows of Summer
The southern town of Saisons lies at the crossroads between North and South, progressive and genteel antebellum life. Between East and West, between history and heritage, and new frontiers. Downton Abbey meets Gone With the Wind.
It’s 1912, in a world where slavery is dying and women’s rights are rising, and four young women who once shared a bond—and experienced a tragedy—question their own truths.
Mercedes has always been an avid reader and devours each new Sherlock Holmes mystery as soon as she gets her hands on them. When one of her friends comes to her, Mercedes vows to keep Simone’s secrets and uncover the truth.
But as Mercedes plays detective to her friends’ questions, she discovers something far more shocking—she herself is not who she thought she was.

I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!
I have been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on my debut novel, Tessa in 2013. Meanwhile, I cranked out a few dozen poems, made countless notes for story ideas, and earned my BFA in Interior Design. I lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; I didn’t want to be who I was and struggled with my own identity for many years. My characters face many of these same demons.
I write stories of identity conflict. My characters encounter situations that force the question, “Who am I really?” For all who have ever wondered who you are or why you’re here, my stories will touch you in a very real—maybe too real—and a very deep way. I know, I write from experience.
I have three novels published, the unsavory heritage series. Tessa, Clara Bess, and Cissy are available on Amazon, both for Kindle and in print. I also have several poems included in an anthology, Where Dreams and Visions Live (Anthologies of the Heart Book 1) by Mary Blowers, as well as a short story, Sarafina’s Light, also in an anthology, Blood Moon, compiled by Mary Blowers. I am currently working on The Tilting Leaves of Autumn, Book Two in my new series, Seasons. It releases in November, following The Long Shadows of Summer, which releases in August. Books 3 and 4 in the series will be out in 2018.
