Untangling Working and Writing While Caring for Mom with Robin Perini
Robin Perini is an award-winning author of heart-stopping suspense and poignant romance novels. When not writing she works for an advanced technology corporation. When not writing or working she helps care for her mother who has Alzheimer’s and lives just across the street with Robin’s father. An advocate for Alzheimer’s education, Robin has woven the topic into two of her novels, “Forgotten Secrets” and “Forgotten Legacy,” books one and two in her Singing River Series. Her goal was to both entertain and educate her readers about the disease, and to raise needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. She happily donates a portion of the royalties from these books to the organization.
As a writer, Robin is devoted to giving her readers fast-paced, high stakes adventures with a love story sure to melt their hearts. Her strong characters and tightly woven plots made her a seven-time Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist. In 2011, she won the Golden Heart®, and that title became her first Harlequin Intrigue novel, “Finding Her Son.” There are now ten. She’s written two other series, including Montgomery Justice and Carder Texas Connections, as well as several stand-alone novels.
Robin resides in the southwestern United States. In her spare time, you might find her giving one of her many nationally acclaimed writing workshops or training in competitive small-bore rifle silhouette shooting. She’s a voracious reader and a die-hard fan of the T.V. series, BONES. She’s also an AlzAuthors Associate, bringing her advanced tech skills to cataloguing our bookstore, a work-in-progress.
In this episode we discuss how her mom’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis changed her life, the challenges of caring for her mom at home while balancing work and writing, thankfulness, and the joys of finding the best home healthcare provider you can find.
