ROGUE FLASH: We welcome new bestselling Rogue, CARLA NEGGERS

by | Oct 21, 2020 | Rogue Flash | 8 comments

We are delighted to add New York Times bestselling author, Carla Neggers, to our Rogue membership. The author of more than 75 novels, including the popular Sharpe & Donovan and Swift River Valley series, her suspense stories have been translated into dozens of languages and sold in over 35 countries. Publishers Weekly calls her books “highly entertaining,” and Kirkus Reviews dubs her novels “smart and satisfying.”

Carla landed her first book sale soon after she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston University. What many of her readers don’t know, though, is that in addition to being a terrific writer, she is also an accomplished musician. She studied with the Boston Symphony, playing the French Horn and freelanced as an arts-and-entertainment reporter.

One more unique thing about Carla – she is quite a runner. She recently completed the “Dingle Half-Marathon” in Ireland, where she has often traveled, gathering research for several of her novels.

Carla’s most recent endeavor, Rival’s Break, features FBI Agent, Emma Sharpe and Marine Patrol Officer, Kevin Donovan in another thriller of international intrigue. She will certainly be a wonderful addition to the Rogue ranks.

Welcome, Carla! We are thrilled to have you join us.
Don’t Miss a Thing!

    I'm in awe of anyone who can produce such a body of literary work AND play an instrument at the level of the Boston Symphony. What talent you possess! And of course I had to look up the Dingle Half Marathon, which looks like one of the most scenic runs ever. So thrilled to welcome you as a Rogue!

  2. Gayle Lynds

    I am over-the-moon excited that you're joining us, Carla. You're so accomplished, and so much fun … and those novels are fabulous! Welcome aboard! x

    I played clarinet since the 4th grade, heard Mike and Mechanics ‘Isn’t it Time” in high school and decided to take up the trumpet. Holy mackerel! The difference between a reed and a brass! I quickly abandoned that plan.

    Thank you, Gayle! I'm having a great time and love getting to know you all better. Also getting a lot of great book recommendations for my TBR pile.

  5. Carla Neggers

    Great story. I never could get the hang of reed instruments but love the sound.

  6. Carla Neggers

    Thanks, Valerie, but "at the level of" is more in my dreams than reality, ha. It was a great experience, though. And Dingle is stunning, even in the rain.

  7. Carla Neggers

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I signed up for the 2021 Dingle half-marathon. It feels do-able now. Talk to me next August. Hoping we'll be able to travel more freely then, too.

    Wow! Amazing about your dual expertise in the arts. So glad to have become a Rogue with you, Carla!
