Paul David Robinson

Biography

Dear Reader,
I've been writing stories and poems for sixty years. I have a closet full of rejections and this year I decided to e-pub.
The first novel I chose for this is dedicated to my wife, Carolyn. I wrote it in 1998. It is entitled: Summer. It is about pain and suffering, the difficult choices people face, and how love can overcome anything.
As a pastor and theologian, I do not separate the sacred and the profane. The difference is in the human mind and not in life itself, just as evil is in the human mind and comes out of the choices people make and not from the devil who made me do it. The devil has nothing to do with it. We are the ones who choose to do evil or good. The whole world is in our hands. Enjoy the books.

Paul David Robinson
Reverend Paul David Robinson,
BA, MDiv, Pastor, Retired

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My parents were missionaries in the Philippines from 1950-1954. I was home schooled with the same materials used at a private school I went to in Bagio City, Luzon. My first stories were about the characters in Winnie the Pooh. I wrote them when I was eight years old. I had beautiful handwriting until we came back to the US and I went to public school and had to change to a slant. I would start to write in longhand and write until my hand was tired. Sometimes I wrote for tweny-four hours at a time or until the story was finished. Almost everythng I wrote was stream of consciousness. Some stories ended before I finished them because I ran out of studyhalls or I as too tired to write anymore. Most of my stories came from dreams I had that I wrote down the next day. Sometimes i was inspired by something I read or something someone said or people I observed.
When did you first start writing?
When I learned how to read and write. When I was eight years old. A nurse who lived downstaiirs in the mission house asked me to get crackers out of the kitchen. When I said I couldn't find them, she grabbed me by the ear, dragged me into her kitchen and pointed to a box and spelled out "C R A C K E R S." Then she said, "Can't you read?" Until then, I didn't know there was a reason to learn how to read. I was reading at a seventh grade level by the end of the summer. And I was writing short stories about Eyore, my favorite character in Winnie the Pooh.
