About this author
I listen to the voices in my head. Those vibrant personalities that struggle to permeate empty spaces. They’re nameless, yet familiar faces, that constantly speak to me and beg to be liberated. Until I acknowledge them, there is no inner peace as they endeavor to unearth the impetus that inspires me to create. Once they’ve succeeded, those impulses are ignited, and I have no choice but to tell their stories of suspense, romance, mystery, and heartache. These characters are my family. They are a part of me. And they are the reason I write. Welcome inside the mind of Robin Michele Carroll, a writer who currently resides in Englewood, Colorado. Robin began writing short stories at the age of nine, but her artistic journey didn’t truly begin until eleven. That’s when she created her own soap opera in junior high and became known as the little girl with the big imagination. Her formation of “The Search for Love” made her popular amongst her peers as the pages of Robin’s drama circulated throughout the halls of the middle school she attended. Eventually, the teachers learned about the content, and Robin was called to the principal’s office with her mother. She was told that the subject matter was too mature, and that she was no longer allowed to share it with her classmates. However, the school didn’t want to squelch her talent, so they placed her in an English class with a teacher who helped Robin hone her skills. There, the seeds were planted, and Robin realized that she was born to be a storyteller
Her book Two Faced
Dr. Robert Melendez is a gifted plastic surgeon that can transform lives with the power of a scalpel. Known as the miracle worker, he starts working with criminals, providing them new faces. But he soon allows ego and greed to overshadow his talent by blackmailing these same criminals, threatening to reveal their true identities if he isn’t paid additional money for his services.
Robert’s plan flourishes until he ends up dead, found beside the corpse of a woman believed to be his wife, Melissa "Missy" Melendez. Upon further investigation, however, it is revealed that the wrong woman has been executed. Once the mistake is discovered, the murderer sets his sights on Missy, determined to finish the job.
Thanks to her psychic abilities, Missy feels her hunter's rage and realizes that she was the intended victim. Paralyzed by fear, she’s unsure who to trust since the killer could be any of Robert’s former patients hiding behind their new human mask. Now, Missy must fight to stay alive as she grapples with the "gift" that connects her to Robert’s murderer. She has to prove her innocence in a double homicide, all while fighting her feelings for the detective who could possibly destroy her.
