Hi there! I’m Robyn and I’m so thankful to Donna for having me here. I’m a writer and I just finished my first novel. It is my sixth published book (so far!), but the first fiction. I first got the idea for Breaking Free when I was 12. It morphed a lot over the 30 years from the initial idea, but the premise stayed the same.
Breaking Free has been a labor of love for me, and one of the most difficult tasks of my life. In many ways, it was like climbing up a very steep mountain. Each time when I thought I had gone most of the way, I’d look up and see that I was nowhere near where I thought I was. So I would trudge onward, some days just baby steps, others were big sprints.
Let me tell you a bit about Samantha, the main character of Breaking Free. She is, by all accounts, just like you and I. She is everywoman, except for the fact that she lost her parents at a young age. Sam is greatly influenced by her mother’s death, which occurred when Samantha was 14.
The pain of that loss caused her to build up walls and close herself off, creating a barrier that even her husband couldn’t quite bring down. Then Sam is faced with her own mortality, and the biggest question of all. Did life mean anything if there is no one left to mourn you when you are gone? One day Sam realizes that she is in jeopardy of never having fully lived and knows that life won’t keep giving her chances to make her mark in the world.
This book is about Sam’s journey to finding her way in this world. There are parts of Samantha that we can all relate to and I hope you love Breaking Free!
