NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. She writes snarky, sexy, funny paranormal and snarky, sexy, funny contemporaries.
Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke Zero Cherry with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals.
First of all, thank you. It delights me to make people pee…I can’t pick an influence because I have so many. I find all of life’s ironies funny and I probably see the world through my own warped vision. I also think there is no humor without pathos.
There is situational humor and then there is character humor. However, nothing is funny unless there is some truth to it. So while I might write heightened (or some would say ridiculous) characters, there is always underlying and very real emotion in each one.
