Kate Robinson


Kate Robinson began her lit career writing bad poetry in Des Moines, Iowa, and continued to hone her writing chops in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, New Mexico, Wales, and Kenya, which serves her well as chief wordwhacker at Starstone Lit Services near Los Angeles.

Kate holds a BA in Anthropology with a concentration in Museum Studies from Prescott College (Arizona) and a MA in Creative Writing from the Aberystwyth University (Wales). Her stories, essays, and poetry appear in international anthologies and journals, and she also expounds upon jellyfish, sundogs, and sundry digressions on the writing life at her blog, Jellyfish Day.

She loves the appearance of the extraordinary in ordinary daily life and tries always to dance with paradox and absurdity.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Iowa and then spent many years in Arizona. My best stories are intimately tied to the places that I've lived or visited.
When did you first start writing?
Probably about the same time that most everyone begins writing, in early childhood. The process of learning to write begins with learning the alphabet and learning to read. Reading and writing are inextricably tied together, and why it's important to the writing craft to read well-crafted prose.
