Robin was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and currently resides in Utah with her family. A former psych tech at LDS Hospital and graduate of BYU, Robin is one of those odd people who returned to college to take classes just for the fun of it.
When she's not knee-deep in the hectic lives of her teenage boys, she's busy creating new worlds or serving as chapter president for her local chapter of the League of Utah Writers.
Robin is addicted to taking pictures, eating French fries, and watching Doctor Who.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up as the middle child in a little town outside of Toronto, Canada. In a family of seven, with one t.v., and siblings who loved to tease, I often retreated to my room to read. My dad kept a collection of science fiction fantasy books in the garage, so when there wasn't an opportunity to make the two mile trek to the library, I would borrow a book from his personal library. I quickly became hooked on fantasy.
When did you first start writing?
I began writing down my own stories only a few years ago, but I have always been "writing" for as long as I can remember. As a chronic insomniac I would lay awake at nights, imagining different endings for books and movies, or keeping my favorite stories going for as long as possible, not wanting the characters' lives to end. I wish now that I had written these ideas down.
