Robin Hillard

Biography

Robin Hillard grew up in the Western Australian goldfields and has spent many years living in provincial cities and country towns of varying sizes during a career spent teaching in Australia, England, and Canada.

She has now settled, with her husband, in Toowoomba, also known as the “Garden City” of Queensland. It is also well served with antique shops—providing the inspiration for Archie’s Antiques—while Robin’s own fertile mind and interest in the strange and curious have created “Archie’s Antiques Mystery Puzzles.”

Toowoomba also provides the basis for the Australian town of Ridgeway, which features in her murder mystery/cozy novel “Ridgeway Murder,” due for release in early 2014.

Robin likes to receive feedback from readers and appreciates reviews of her books being posted at Goodreads and other sites.
