Andrew Robinson

Publisher info

Born and raised in Arlington, Massachusetts, he’s lived in Orlando, Florida for over ten years. Author of six novels: a children’s book, two books in a young adult sci-fi series, a murder mystery, an international thriller, and a teen adventure story set against the backdrop of a new species of humans – the vamps (and no, it is not a vampire romance story!) He’s also done a non-fiction work, a memoir, and an anthology collection of stories about growing up on Martha’s Vineyard island. The titles are:

Dragonspeak: Drew, the Boy Who Talked to Dragons
Lexa and the Gordian Maze of Terra
Lexa and the Smugglers of Cyclo
Murder on Gosnold Island
Blood Money
Vampire Vendetta
2012 Survival Guide
Love Among the Ruins
Martha’s Vineyard: My Island, My Memories

More than two hundred of his short stories are available for public viewing on the website GrubStreet.ca.
One of his movie screenplays – Wiccans Lair – was made into a motion picture by an Orlando indi (independent) company. While not yet released, a Rep for 20th Century Fox called it, “engrossing and well-made.” He’s written a dozen other screenplays; they run the gamut from romantic comedies to horror to sci-fi to family-friendly stories. One, I Kill Killers, a murder mystery, is now casting in Orlando.
He assisted Zman Films in New York with the script Hip Hop High (a HSM-type of story), which was a stage show presented as part of the New York City Fringe Fest, and Guitar Hero – the Musical. He wrote Arena Morte, a sci-fi/action script, which is currently in pre-production with Frontline Studios, a Polish film company, and which was the basis for a RP game of the same name.
He’s written pilots for eight television series: two sitcoms and six children’s animated series; one animated series (Little Friends) is being considered by Aljazeera Children’s Network. He’s done treatments for all of these series and several reality shows. One of them, the Youth Talks Show, is slated to begin in May of 2013.
He wrote the story for a comic book: Diva TEAM: A Fiery Beginning, currently being prepared for publication, and two computer games: Incognito (episodes 1 and 2), available from the website Magrathean.ca.
He’s ghost written and/or helped half a dozen people with their books, both fiction and non-fiction, and he continues to work as a freelance writer. Using the Internet, he’s written for clients all over the world – from England to Australia – and his articles have appeared in US Developers Journal, US Executive Journal, Canadian Executive Journal, Charter Schools Today, and other publications.
Regional Director of Central Florida for the Florida Writers Association; a group dedicated to helping writers find their full potential; he’s available to teach classes in script writing and story writing. He and his wife run Cricket Cottage Publishing, LLC, a royalty-based publisher, and can be contacted via email at: DrWhoAR@hotmail.com or CricketCottage@att.net or by phone at: (407) 928-6215 or (407) 255-7785.
Married, the father of one child – a daughter, now twenty, which explains why most of his stories feature strong female leads.
