About Robin Radlauer-Cramer

As the child of two successful children’s authors, Ed and Ruth Radlauer, Robin Radlauer-Cramer always said she wanted to grow up to be an author, a teacher, or a bus driver. At age 60, she has been all three and more. Robin worked on many nonfiction children’s books with her parents, and co-authored Bicycle Motocross with her father in the late 1970’s.
Teaching is the career Robin has excelled at for 30 years. Reading and Writing are her favorite subjects. In order to share her love of reading with students, she immersed herself in children’s literature and served on the California Young Reader Medal committee for three years.
Aspiring authors are told to “write what you know.” Robin knows children’s middle grade literature. She also grew up riding horses in the rolling hills (former cow pastures) of Southern California and trained her young horse herself. These experiences give her first-hand insight for creating some of the characters and events in her story.
Robin currently lives near the beach in San Diego County with her husband and their two cats. Her grown children live nearby and make her proud every day.
