Robert Collins

Biography

I'm the author of three published SF novels: Expert Assistance, Lisa's Way, and Monitor. I'm also the author of the coming of age novel True Friends, and the fantasy novel Cassia. I have several short story collections available.. I've written several books on Kansas history.

In addition to books, I've sold stories to periodicals such as Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine; Tales of the Talisman; Golden Visions; and Sorcerous Signals.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The eighth grade.

I'd always been an imaginative kid. I saw "Star Wars" and got into science fiction and fantasy. I wanted to see and read everything I could. One of the books I read was "Asimov on Science Fiction." That book showed me that there was a way to take my imagination and put it to use: I could be a writer.

I started writing in junior high. I wrote mostly fan fiction through and after high school, then in the late 1980s I began writing only in my own worlds. I sold my first short story in 1990, and I've been published (or publishing) ever since.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yep. A "Star Trek" fan fiction short story. It wasn't good. I doubt it was even so-so. Thankfully, the only copy was lost in the 1991 Andover tornado.

I hope I've gotten better since then.
