Meet the Author

Like her novel’s protagonist, Robin Lehman grew up in Juneau, Alaska. She got her first taste of politics at age 17 when she went to work in the office of the Alaska Governor.Robin has been a Kansan for more than three decades. She holds a bachelors degree in journalism from the University of Kansas. In the early ‘90s, she established a lobbying/corporate communications firm in Lawrence along with her husband, Pat. During the 20-year course of serving clients, both as a lobbyist and a communicator, she became deeply immersed in public policy issues. Often surrounded by contentious debate, such issues could, in Robin’s estimation, become the stuff of some pretty intense political thrillers.Perseverance, the first in a series of issue-based political thrillers, was borne out of the long debate surrounding oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the disposal of nuclear waste, foreign oil imports, and alternative energy – major issues over which opposing forces could collide. And collide they do in Robin’s debut novel published by Fogdog Press.

    Really enjoyable read

    There are quite a few characters to keep up with, but overall this is a really good book. I didn't want to put it down. It kept me wondering how the next chapter would play out.

    Bookworm

    I enjoyed the fast pace and the smart mouth although the latter would likely get an FBI agent tossed out before advancing to any level of leadership. Having worked with legislators for several years, I marvel that real agents aren't driven to periodically take their gun out and shoot. I do recommend the book, but I did think there was one glaring flaw. When faced with an attacker who clearly intends to KILL you, you don't just whimper and whine--you fight! Well, the whiner was a politician so maybe that explains it.
